What Color is a Cow? Blue, Green, or Orange???

By now you must have heard that Heather - owner of H&M Stamps - is having a blow out garage sale?? ALL of her stamps are just $3 - $5 per set! She's clearing out her shelves to make room for her new spring/summer sets! But they are going fast - some are already gone - so you may want to pop over there NOW and then come back here?!

The card I made today for the Split Coast Color Challenge uses one of Heather's sets called Kiddie Farm. It includes animals, a barn, animal words, a tractor and a tree. The stamp outlines look like they were drawn with a crayon - a very cute kids card set! AND it only costs $4.00 in the sale!!! (are you still here?)

The challenge was to use blue, green and orange. Hard colors to use together! They seem to me to work best with kids stuff (primary colors I guess) so that's why I pulled out my Kiddie Farm set.

This card would be our 'let's learn our colors' card not a 'let's learn the real colors of animals' card!! LOL!!This really awkwardly angled shot (!!??) shows the layered heads and popped up circles.

Be sure to check back here on Saturday morning - you'll have a chance to win blog candy from me of one of the H&M Valentine sets that sold out today!

and check out fellow H&M DT member Carolina's blog - she's offering a gift cert to H&M Stamps.

All of the DT members listed on my side bar are showing fun cards made with Heather's stamps so go visit them too!

Please leave me a comment on this post to let me know if you went to the sale and bought something!!!! You can win one of the Percy stamps - I'll pick a random number winner on Thursday night! Edited to add: if you didn't go over to the sale - you can still leave a comment and be eligible to win!!

I bought 3 sets! I was thrilled at the reduced prices :) Sadly, Kiddie Farm was not one of the sets I got, but this sure is cute!

I went over on Tuesday to purchase the A Lil Behind but it must have been sold out. Still have not heard from them via email. Love the card. Question is "What color milk does a green cow give?" LOL
