Hello, hello...

Howdy folks!

Are you up for a new Wednesday challenge at ATS? This week we've got a fab sketch by Janneke to play with that is sure to get your creative juices flowing. :)
I used Fairwee Josie just chillin' out in the Mason Jar for my card today and I actually pulled my colors from the mini yo-yos that I made (I'm sooo addicted to making those little things now and already have a bag full!). I also paired her with the giant butterfly die from The Cat's Pajamas to really reinforce Josie 'fairwee' small size. Hmmm... as I'm looking at this card now it is making me crave some citrus sherbet real bad, LOL!

I've also had some requests to do a tutorial on how I color up the Mason Jar stamp with the brassy colored lid and I was able to get one done on my last day off. You can find it on my Youtube channel here AND I was feeling ambitious I guess because I also filmed a tutorial on how I colored up Fairwee Josie here. Fair warning on the Josie vid... I just squeaked it in under the 15 minute mark, LOL! Or if you like, all of my recent coloring videos have also been added to the Color Me Copic blog for easy access as well. Anywho... I hope you enjoy the new tutorials and as always, if you ever have any specific requests just give me a shout either here or by email... I'm always open to suggestions.

Now back to this week's challenge, 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!
