Grow! PPA 105 Color Challenge.......

Ha, that is so cute how you snuck the "Up" in there! I was hoping we demo's that didn't attend could purchase this stamp but haven't seen it available yet. I would love to make something for my downline with this. So glad you got to go and so like the card!

I was thinking, "What a pretty card, pretty colors," then I saw the add on and just cracked up! I can think a few folks I'd like to send that too. Well done!

Linda this card is beautiful in photo 1, and hilarious [but so true] in photo 2! I can think of a few people I would like to send it to! You are too too funny! LOVE it.

Linda, I would say "two great minds think alike" but your card is much prettier than mine. Just found it interesting that we considered the same stamp set! Great job!
