OK so I had an idea what today's TLC was going to be from Lynn's hint last week and knew I did not have any marbles (lost mine yrs ago when my kids became teens, LOL). I was bumbed out bc I have to stamp every day or the day is just not good. DH heard my dilema and came up with some lead bullets he has for his 1864 hand pistol. So thanks to my dh this is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Marbles. While searching for other challenges to use I ran across today's CCEE Stampers Challenge - Everything Old Is New Again and decided that the marble background looked like kids when they 1st start coloring and from there a Mother's Day card was born. I have had this Kids at Play set for a long time, used it 1 time a couple of yrs ago and just never seem to bring it out until today. I inked up the 3 kids that resemble 3 of my grands with my black marker by omitting 1 of them on the stamp. The sentiment is from All Holidays. Both sets are from Stampin UP. For my layout I found a kewl sketch from today's SKETCH AND STASCH CHALLENGE #9. Such a fun layout for what I was making. I used Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point, and Kiwi Kiss for my color combo. I love all 3 of these colors and Tangerine Tango just has not gotten used enough. Maybe Emily will use this color combo before these retire. Have a great Monday.
