Watercolor Trio and Punch Art by Rhonda Clement and Lynn Mailhot

More ideas from my downline meeting last Sunday. Below are  shoebox swaps created by Rhonda Clement and Lynn Mailhot. Rhonda's uses a set from the Summer mini which customers should be receiving in the mail and can order out of beginning Saturday, May 1.   Watercolor Trio is the stamp set used on this shoebox swap. After I made Rhonda's swap, Watercolor Trio was added to my wish list and will be my next purchase!

Lynn used punches to create this quick, clean and simple card. Lynn used the saying as the stem for her punch art daisy:

The two cards, below in the back, were part of the shoebox swaps by  Carrie Arsenault and Michele Stinson and were cased.  They were not sure of the original demonstrators.  The card in front was created by Dianne, my friend and customer, and was given to me last Friday.

Remember to check out blog candy contest card #1  on April 13th post! 


Contest Details: 

   When I was at the beauty salon last week I had about 10 minutes to look through a magazine. I saw a lot of different color combinations and, well I get my inspiration in a lot of places, so I thought these colors would make a nice card! So I started writing down the color combinations in the various pictures that looked like Stampin' Up! colors. Any colors in bold in the recipe above were in a single picture. I wrote down the name of the magazine and the month and about 6 different color combinations all in the same magazine. This weekend I made cards using those color combinations I wrote down. I have 4 cards down for this week and hope to have the other two ready to post next week. Your Challenge is find the magazine I looked at that has these color combinations! The first person to name the magazine and correct month/year will win the blog candy. I will give the blog candy away at the end of the month. If no one answers correctly, I will draw a name from everyone who posted a comment between April 13- April 30. Good Luck and don't forget to post a comment to be eligible for the blog candy. Good Luck and start looking at pictures/advertisments in magazines when out and about and you may win!!  NOTE: You are eligible to enter if you live in the continental United States only.  I will mail blog candy (it's a surprise!) to only US  addresses  that accepts Priority flat rate package.   

HINT: The year is 2010
