Some *late* Challenge Cards!

Well I have been a really horrible stamper this week! I haven't got alot done and that makes me sad:( I think by the time I get off work I just feel like vegging out, kwim? My creative muse has not been with me this week! BUT, my dear sweet hubby swept me off to an overnight stay at Okuma (the little *vacation* resort on the island for military families) and we had a BLAST! We checked in to Okuma and then drove up north another 30 km and visited Hedo Point which is Okuma's norther most tip. The views were AWESOME!I have more pics and I'll post them later. I haven't edited them yet and I'm to lazy to do it right now, lol! We had an amazing little room, with the Pacific Ocean right out the window, had a great dinner and conversation, had some drinks, then played mini golf (where I lost BIG time!) and then went through a maze and didn't get lost! So yeah, we had fun:) Then when we got home today my creative muse started coming back so I decided to look into some challenges I hadn't gotten done yet and settled on this weeks Color Combo and today's Featured Stamper!
First up is my Color Combo card!
The colors for CC205 are Perfect Plum, Pink Pirhouette, and Kiwi Kiss. LOVELY color combo, I had lots of fun with this one:) The stamp set I used is called Upsey Daisey, another one of my all-time fave SU! sets:) Can you see the fabulous corderouy brads? OMG these things are AMAZING! I'm putting in another order today just so I can buy more:D They are so fun! I also punched some vellum butterflies with my MS punch, I love vellum butterflies, they're so dainty:)

Okay, next card is for today's Featured Stamper challenge! The Featured Stamper this week is JulieMLacey! Her gallery is so phenomenal, I had a hard time picking a card out of all the beauty that is her gallery, but I decided to CASE {this} one! I loved the layout and the buttons:) Okay, so here's my card:
The colors I used are Basic Black and Whisper White by SU! and Summer Sunrise and Raspberry Fizz by PTI! The stamp set I used is another new one called Garden Greetings, LOVE this set:) The buttons are by Basic Gray and I'm not sure who makes that ribbon. I also cuttlebugged my RF layer, the flowers are kinda similar:)

Well there you have it! That's all for right now, if we don't watch a movie tonite (I bought "The Rocker" with "Dwight" from the office, I love that show and love Dwight to PIECES!) I may stamp some more:)

Ya'll have a fantastic Sunday!
