Double Hopping with PMS and CTD!

Hi everyone! Today is a PACKED post! It's a double hop with one card!

First of all, let me give you all the information from the Paper Makeup Stamps hop. Today is Release Day for Paper Makeup Stamps, and we always hop on release day! So if you are hopping with PMS, you should have come here from the fab Christi Thorsen's blog. If not, stop by the PMS blog to start at the beginning. We are showcasing four new sets today that all deal with beauty. Our DT member, Shaela Odd, illustrated all of them! You should have been collecting letters along the way that will spell out a code to get you 15% off the new release. My letter for you is "A". When you leave here, you will head on over to our new DT member, Andrea Vernagus. Also, tonight at 8:00 pm CST, we will be partying in the PMS forum. Stop by for some chatter, fun, games, and giveaways! (Just a note: the PMS hop is starting at 7:00 am EST, so if you are here before then, you won't see that hop just yet!)

Secondly, it's the 100th color challenge at the Color Throwdown Challenge blog! Woohoo!!! Those girls are so talented, and always come up with some great color combos! I'm not on their team (that's just a dream of mine!), but they've asked all of their previous guest designers to participate in this challenge. I was honored to be guest designer in October 2009, so that's why I'm hopping with them today! And there are some fabulous prizes being given away. You can get the details on the CTD blog, but in a nutshell...you have to comment on all the blogs participating in the challenge (one comment per person and I have them listed below) AND post a card using the colors on the CTD blog by Monday, July 12 at 11:59 p.m. in order to be in the running. Each participating blog is giving away some fab prize, and mine just happens to be the entire July release from Paper Makeup Stamps!!!! (I wonder how I got that prize to give away! LOL!!) One of you is going to be so lucky because this month's release is HUGE! Good luck!


Now, here are the CTD colors to play with for this 100th celebration.
I have to admit that this was a challenging one for me...I think I got it to work ok (but I think I've lost my mojo...it's still on holiday!). Here's my card. I first pulled out cardstock in the four colors, then pulled out every dp I had that could possibly work with this combo. After much consideration, I chose these which are both My Mind's Eye. The floral print is an old one called Wild Asparagus, and the other is from the Quite Contrary line. The image is a new single image called Beauty Profile. I just love that image. To keep with the colors, I had to color her hair green (I really like it!), and swirled some regal rose ink around the white part. The sentiment, which is from a new mini set called Beautifully Fabulous, was stamped over the image as an after thought (and is a little crooked because of it!). It's a quote from Coco Chanel which reads "A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous!" Love that saying! The corner pieces are a cuttlebug die. I added the blue crystals to it and some star dust stickles to the image to bling it up!

Here is a list of all the participants in the CTD hop. Please make sure you comment on them all for a chance to win!

Tammy Hershberger - Stamp Happy
Broni Holcombe - Splashes of Watercolor
Barbara Anders - Paper Pursuits
Danielle Kennedy - Wild Dragonfly Designs
LeAnne Pugliese - Wee Inklings
Laura Pryor - Lil' Inker
Kisa Peters - Kisa's Paper Cuts
Carol Longacre - Our Little Inspirations
Deb Horst - Sendable Sentiments

Maria Gurnsey - Scraps By M
Pam Speidel - Stamping With Serendipity
Sylvia Nelson - Sylvia's Stamp Corner
Teresa Kline - Enjoy the VA Sunshine

So now you have to hop! Remember my PMS letter for you is "A" and you should head over to Andrea's blog to see her amazing reveal!

Thanks so much for double hopping with me today...have fun on your way!
