You are my sunshine

Hola!
Is the sun shining where you are today? Summer has definitely arrived in my neck of the woods and by the look of things it is shining bright over Sweet November Land too! ;)

The Wednesday challenge at ATS this week is one of my favorites... a color challenge! We want to see you use aqua, yellow and lime green on your card or creation. This color combo just screams summer to me so it was a no brainer inking up one of the new merbabies again. I went with Splash and this time I paired her up with Otto, the otter. The look on his face is like he just realized that he has inadvertently wandered into the clam shell nursery and he's about to endure a big squeeze of a hug from Splash yet he knows he can't escape it, LOL! Considering those merbabies don't get to see many fuzzy, furry critters I suspect that Otto will be kept very busy by all those little tots wanting their turn to pet and play with him . And while he may grumble a bit he's still a good sport and really doesn't mind bringing a little extra sunshine to their day. ;)

Ok, so I know you want to play along right? Of course you do, because every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered and in order to be eligible to win just be sure that your project includes a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please!

You're forever my mostest idol!

Fun thing: My mojo is gone on vacation and my sister's has been a while, untile she visited me and saw that neat purple kit you made for me. She swooned, so I said she could brrow it as long as I get back what she soesn't use. She made cards the entire evening.
Sooo: THANK YOU again, this time from both me & my sister!
