Mama Mia, here I go again.....

Happy Tuesday, folks! It's me...the missing blogger. I've been all over...playing with the boys, going swimming, and doing all those fun vacation-from-work type things. Not much stamping time, though...boo. I hope to have some tonight or tomorrow. Fingers crossed, right?

So today is one of my favorite challenge days...the Color Challenge! And to top it all off, the guest hostess is my girl Carole. WAHOO!! So of course I had to play. Here's my card!

Yes I used a Stampin' Up set, don't fall over! I was looking through my sets trying to figure out what to use and I thought I'd dust off one of my less used sets, Refuge and Strength. I love the little leaf image stamp in this set, so I used it to make a little border around my main panel.

Ok, I'm running back into the stamp room before anyone tries to make me fix a snack! Hopefully I'll be back soon!


Stamps: Refuge & Strength
Paper: Groovy Guava, Barely Banana, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Ink: Groovy Guava, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Cuttlebug Textile Folder, Photo Corner Punch, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Brown Brads, Stampamajig, Nestabilities, Stickles, Pop Dots

Beautiful card, Shannan! And your title made me smile - with all the ads for the movie on tv lately, I've been singing that song a lot - and my 2yr old has started in too - so cute to hear him singing "mama mia, here I go" - he always leaves off the "again"! :-)
