Random Amusing Challenge 10

Wow! Number 10... hope you have been having fun with them. First off, thanks to the wonderfully talented ladies who participated last week. Check out their work and then play along with this week's challenge.

This week's challenge is a colour challenge - use French Roast, Swiss Red and Chiffon Yellow on your card. If you don't have these exact colours, just use something close. Hope you have fun with it. I really like this combo. This card was made for Splitcoast's Featured Stamper 100 challenge, featuring the fabulous Julie Ebersole, our creative team director. Of course, I always like it if you use something from Amuse on your card too. If you upload to SCS, use the keyword GRAC10.

Also, I have received an award from Dawn (thanks Dawn!):

Blogs who receive the Proximidade Award invest and believe in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships. They are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated!

The rules are to deliver this award to eight bloggers, who then must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award!

Hard to pick eight but here they are:

Beth, Jen, Chris, Jill, Allison, Novell, June, Silke

Have a great week. It will be a busy one for me... I'm preparing to leave on two work trips (less than 48 hours at home between them), I have a board meeting (I am VP on the UVic Alumni Association Board of Directors), French class on Thursday with my BFF Deanne, and celebrating Karl's new job which starts next Monday (we won't be working together anymore). I will have a challenge for you next week but will be taking a break on the week of the 9th (due to travel - I know my hotel in Italy won't have internet access).

Happy Stamping and thanks for stopping by... I always appreciate it! Glenda
