So totally coooool

Our kayak finally got put to use today! It was a gorgeous day to paddle out on the lake. Our little local body of water looks so beautiful from the inside. My non-muscular arms feel like they'll fall off, but it is worth it.

My post-lake-kayak cool down was gettin it in for the Play Date Cafe color challenge of silver, nude, and gold. And I get to use another one of my brand new (new to me!) Paper Smooches stamps



The colors are very wintery, but it's just not that time yet! I made a winter image but with a generic sentiment so I can use it before December :)



I used DCWV metallic silver card stock for the background. The sentiment from Paper Smooches "good gab" is stamped in metallic gold ink. The Paper Smooches "Swanky Snowman" was stamped with tuxedo black Momento ink, colored with nude, gold, and silver Copics. I then used gold and silver Stickles to make everything extra shiny :) oh ya and some nude color Liquid Pearls.

My parents visit in three days, I can't wait to see them :)
