New challenge blog........Try Stampin on Tuesday

Afternoon Stampers.

Boy my head is going around and around, 
so i apologize in advance if this post goes askew at all.
I have just finished doing my "almost end of the year" paper work, a time of year i really don't like.
There always seems to be so much to do, even though i manage to keep it all up to date on a weekly basis.

On to a lighter note.
I have done it again, i made the top 3 pick, over at 
Here is my badge.

Try Stampin on Tuesday have released their 5th weekly challenge.
I challenge all to go on over and have a play.

This week it is a fabulous sketch with so much potential.

My first attempt was so blah that i am not going to blog it at all. 
After checking out this weeks color challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers.
i found a new idea swimming in my head.

This weeks colors are.....

Concord Crush
Bashful Blue
Pear Pizzaz
Every week there is also an added bonus of adding a "dessert" to your creations.
The "dessert" this week was adding a touch of white gel pen, which i did do 

This one of my all time favorite color combinations.

So here is my (take 2) end result.

What the photo doesn't really show is the shading that i have added to the four non 3-D flowers, this is becoming a effect that is growing on me alot.
Do you see the white gel pen?.

One last thing i had to share was a photo of my blogging buddy. every time i sit down to blog, he sits right at my finger tips, and sometimes he even swipes at my fingers to remind me it's lunch time.
I am lucky as for some reason he will sit on the bed behind me until i have finished creating, than come up front when i hit the time to blog the creation.

 Have a great afternoon
