i love mew

So yesterday I was doing my usual scan of status updates on Facebook (have I mentioned, among many other addictions, I'm also hopelessly addicted to Facebook!?) when I saw Kim say "I need a major color challenge, I'm in a stamping color rut!". Being the smart aleck that I am, I jumped in and said "Elegant Eggplant, Real Red, Chocolate Chip - go stamp!". I completely pulled these colors out of thin air, not even considering how easy or difficult they would be to use together. I was sort of joking, but Kim took me up on the challenge and set off to work! Check out her blog to see what she came up with!! So then I thought, well, to be fair, I should attempt this crazy color combo myself! I thought about the Chocolate Chip, and decided a brown animal might work. So naturally I thought of my sweet Kiki Kitties from Pink Cat Studio!! Although I have to say, coloring him brown like this, I think he sorta looks like chocolate!! But maybe I just have chocolate bunnies on the brain this time of year. :-) For a layout I decided to scan my favorite blog Pickled Paper Designs, because it's always soooooo inspiring - I thought this card had a general layout that could work with this image, and changed it up just a little. Amy also gave me the inspiration to pull out that lacy ribbon - I thought the hearts went well with the balloon hearts. Oh, and the little heart in "i *heart* mew". Isn't that the cutest little sentiment??? I just realized, I have hearts in three places. Yay! I think that's supposed to be a good design rule or something, to do things in threes. LOL. I also decided to throw in Sharon's latest Stamp Simply challenge while I was at it - to use ribbon tabs. So double yay! I successfully completed my own crazy color challenge, and another one to boot! If you're looking for a challenge yourself, feel free to try these colors as well, and let me and Kim know that you did so we can check it out! Thanks for stopping by today!!
