Ok, so I know I spelled it wrong, but it was supposed to be fun! lol
Welcome to this week's Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop

 I hope you're hopping over from Helen's cool blog!!! I've missed her!!  After you're through here, be sure to keep hopping over to Liz's awesome blog!!! And then keep going! There are tons of amazing creations & ideas on the blogs in this hop! We may be a small hop, but we pack a punch!!!

So this week's colors are
Midnight Muse, Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry
 Midnight Muse, Cherry Cobbler, Pool Party
And our Added Piece - use a sketch from a challenge blog

Now many of us go to the challenge blogs to get ideas. When our "mojo" isn't there, it's nice to be given a parameter where you can jump start your design! There are tons around the internet! I've used many on this blog! I really like them! Then you can go back & post your design on the challenge blog. You may even win the challenge! I did once & it was such a great feeling!!

So first, my card uses the second batch of colors:

I had to take the pics at night so the Pool Party doesn't really show up unfortunately! In person, it's such a nice contrast to the darker colors! 
 I love this stamp set, Just Sayin', from the Occasions Mini! I sure hope this one makes it into the big book!  
The little bird comes from the Animal Talk stamp set! I just stamped & fussy cut! 
Lovin' this new Arrows Texured embossing folder! Also from the Occasions Mini! And again, those Banner Framelits that I never thought I'd use & use all the time!!!!

So the sketch challenge I chose this week is Sketch Frenzy Friday 021414! I've used their sketches before! I also frequent this site for ideas! They offer a simple sketch each week. Some challenge blogs use colors, kinda like this hop does!

Here's the sketch:

So you can see my interpretation is a bit different, but on the same idea! That's what nice about these! You use them as a jump start but then you can modify on your own!!! Fun stuff!!!

So hope you liked this week's hop! Please hop over to the other blogs on this blog hop, and if you have time, hop over to Sketch Frenzy Friday to see what other great "designers" came up with!!! You might even want to check out the challenge sites they chose!!!

Happy Stampin'!
