Good morning!! Welcome back to a Sunday Paper you can count on to be full of fun and inspiration!! :)
I hope you've all had a great start to your September! Fall weather seems to be creeping in and now that the school year is in full swing I'm okay with that. Fall is a fun and busy time of the year with many birthday celebrations, family trips to the apple orchard and pumpkin patch, beautiful colors to enjoy, sweatshirt weather, football games and so much more. I'm ready!
Have you checked out September's promotions? If not, don't miss them! Check 'em out here. I'll give you some time to catch up... ... ... ... ...

Hey, check those cards out again... Did you notice most of the cards were from the same color palette? A color challenge was posted by one of our CTMH Directors so I gave it a try! Since I was going to be stamping in the livingroom during a movie it was actually easier to grab only the given colors I had that coordinated with the challenge, one stamp set and a couple blocks. The color parameters forced me to use only what I had. (Well, okay for the first card I just had to add a lil' something more...Hollyhock was begging to be used. hehehe) Kind of neat idea, huh? Here's the color challenge, use the colors as a starting point, see what you have and give it a try. I'd love to see what you can come up with this week using these colors! You could post a picture on my Facebook page or send me a message - for real... do it!! :)
