Hello amazing friend, you rock!

Hello Friends! Happy Saturday!

I’m excited that today marks the first day of another 30 Day Colouring Challenge. My mojo has been AWOL recently, so I’m hoping this challenge give me the inspiration I need. I love playing along and I’m hoping to colour something every day during this challenge. Let’s see how that goes!

Last time, I set myself my own sub-challenge – to only use wood-mounted rubber stamps for my colouring!  I recently went through my old cards and Hero Arts stamps for the Hero Arts’ 45th anniversary Show & Tell. It made me want to reach for my wood-mounted stamps again. So, I’m aiming to use them most days during this challenge, but in the second half, I plan to devote myself to Christmas in July and will be using Christmas stamps. Pretty excited about that actually! I’m ready to play with my festive stamps again!

So with that in mind, here is my car/colouring for Day 1 using the fabulous Flowers and Leaf background stamp by Hero Arts, made in 2007. How can that be 12 years ago? Anyway, I coloured it with my Twinkling H2Os and adhered it to a card base that I’d covered with old patterned paper. I stamped a few Clearly Besotted sentiments and added them to the card, following the sketch for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. It’s hard to believe that stamp set is 12 years old. The style of it still seems so fresh! A timeless design, obviously! Thanks for sharing your beautiful card with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
