After stalking the mail all week - I finally received my birthday gift from Kim at My Favorite Things! It was her biggest blog giveaway - the whole June release! It was announced the day after my birthday last week, so that' why I say it was my birthday gift from her. Of course I don't know Kim personally, but a few months ago I actually won Ride 'em Cowgirl too so it was my 2nd time to win her blog candy! yea me!! Anyway, I totally LOVE all the sets this month so I immediately got a few inky for some weekend challenges I did.

While trying to catch up with my Google Reader (down to 395 posts) I came across an Inspiration Challenge #4 posted by Pamela at Paper Askew that I really wanted to participate in. It's my first time participating in one and I think I've been missing out! There are so many out there right now to choose from but this one caught my eye because the room looked so nice and I love the colors! I chose to work with the stripes, flowers and Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery & Basic Black. So naturally I went to my Sultry Basic Grey DP. The focal image was colored with reinkers on watercolor paper. It is a 3x3 card that is the actual place for a greeting, held in place by the photo turner, the basic black base is just for matting purposes. I suppose I could have photographed it open so you could see, but I bet you can imagine what it looks like. I was using scraps which is what I go to first before cutting a whole sheet of c/s.
