COTW: Granny Apple Green

It's Week TWO of the Inktober Challenge---Color of the Week.  Don't forget to check out my Facebook Community  (click here) and you can find all the information for this month's Challenge there!

Week Two's color was Granny Apple Green.


This green is so gorgeous and bright and it reminds me of summer with just a hint of coolness to it that it can transition easily into fall.  I also really see a bright, shiny Granny Smith Apple whenever I see this color and I can almost smell the sweet tartness!  Mmm...apples...apple pie....fall...**swoon**.

Week Two went by with no players again, but that's OK, we still have THREE more weeks to play!!  Remember: I'm giving away a FREE Ink Pad for the grand prize!  You'll get a new ink pad with all the new innovations (what are those?  Click Here to find out!)  So, I used one of my own color inspiration photos again this week.


I needed to create an anniversary card for the hubs since Year Nine is rapidly approaching in a few days!  While this quilt seems a bit feminine, I thought it reminded me of the Eclectic Layers Thinlits and I wanted to make a card with that.  Here it is:


I incorporated my favorite color in, too, Melon Mambo and it almost reminds me of when you intertwine two strands together they become one to form a beautiful creation---and that's what our marriage reminds me of.  We are Granny Apple Green and Melon Mambo and we have created a union that is as beautiful as the image I put together with paper!  *Aww*!  I hope he likes it and doesn't think it's too girly!  Maybe I'll have to explain it to him...

This can be lots of fun to play along!  I'll be announcing the new COTW tomorrow on Facebook!  So look for that and snap a pic to post for your chance to be pulled as the week's winner and challenge ME to create a new project with your photo!

Top 10 Tuesday: 12 Days of Christmas Movies

Well, so instead of a Top 10, I'm changing it to a Top 12!  Because I love The Twelve Days of Christmas and I love Christmas movies and why not combine both together to make it 12 Days of Christmas Movies!?  I suppose we each all have our own opinions as to what Christmas Movies are *must-haves* on our Watch List, but I would like to think there are some that just generally required, by public agreement.  So, here's my Top 12 Days of Christmas Movies List, complete with a FREE Printable so you can make this a Holiday Bucket List Item, if you'd like!  I'd love to hear if your favorite movie made the cut or not! OH---and one more thing---these movies are certainly not listed in an specific order, they are more in the order in which I may or may not have already watched them... (#SorryNotSorry!) 12.  The Santa Clause (1994) When this movie first came out, I was totally entranced by the interpretation of the North Pole, courtesy of Disney Magic, that I almost bel

Lent 2020: Day Two

Today's post is brought to you by...COFFEE.  I'm not going to lie, I really did consider giving up coffee for Lent, but when I mentioned it to one of my best friends, his response was "well, I'll see you in 40 days!"  I was kind of shocked at his lack of support, but then I read a post that was shared with me regarding Lent and some "food for thought" and one of the bullet points read "Don't give up coffee. Jesus will forgive you, but your family might not."  Well---I heard God loud and clear on that one.  Don't give up coffee.  And I'm so very glad I did not. See today, I had a TON of things to accomplish.  We're gearing up for a big weekend and I had quite the laundry list to do.  Not only was my laundry list (and my laundry basket) huge, but I didn't sleep well last night.  I had a very restless husband, so I put myself out on the couch.  Which wasn't terrible, but it wasn't exactly great, either.  So I already

Tutorial Tuesday: VIA Coffee Holder

Are you following me on Pinterest yet??  If not, please do!  There's a bunch of amazing goodness there!  One of which, is an extremely popular pin---my VIA Coffee Holder. I enjoy trying new things and one day, while wondering the aisles of my local Target, I stumbled upon these new little packages of coffee, called "VIA".  It's by Starbucks and they are instant coffee singles.  Whhaaat!!?  Naturally, (because I'm a victim of marketing) I bought some.  Then I thought, These are so cute!  I want to do something with them and my Coffee Cafe Suite!   After that, my VIA Coffee Holder/Folder (whatever you want to call it) was born. I imagine you can see why this is not just my  most re-pinned pin, but it's pretty popular on Pinterest, in general.  Woot! Now, my friends, I will show you how to make your own with my Tutorial Tuesday! Supply List: Cardstock (I used Early Espresso, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake for the samples above) Check out the Coffee
