Good Monday morning all! I hope the weekend was good to all of you. I am almost feeling back to normal, but the nights are my enemy. That is when my bronchitis really kicks in, oh well - I am sure I will be my normal self real soon (I hope!)

So since it is Monday, well that means it is SPCC Monday!
Come on over and play. Sam always has great weekly prizes. Hope to see you all there!

Now I have to admit, this color combo really stumped me. I honestly don't know what color Dusty Durango is. Now if I had SU products then it would be a breeze. But I don't :) Is it orange, or red, or orangy-red, or burnt orange, or salmon? Any help will do! The funny thing is, I was so worried about the Dusty Durango that I think I messed up the greens LOL!

But what is a challenge without a challenge? And I did the best I could :)

Here are the colors this week:

Card Ingredients: K&Co Citronella and Viola Vita papers; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; DigiStamp Boutique image; Stampendous! Kaleidoscope embossing powder; Craft Smart Kelly Green ink; Nestabilities oval and square; Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder; Ms ribbon; random gems, button and twine.

Happy Monday!! See you all on Wednesday :) xoxo
