FWF ...Neutrals

So I've been drawn to the neutral papers and colors lately...
I was so excited to try black ink on a grey background
(I know I'm probably behind the times)
I made this first card to share with you all today
AND THEN...
I realized this was the same sentiment I used last week-OOPS!
So I made a bonus card to share too.

I really like the look of this first card especially the sparkly pops of pink!
I kinda like the plain feel of this next card.  It was going to be my entry for the sketch challenge
Until I remembered it had to be a KOTM stamp.
SERIOUSLY Erin
 get.it.together.
Sorta old timey vintage maybe? dunno but I like it. :)

Despite a few set backs this week, I have successfully made it
HALFWAY in my 100 card/layout challenge!!!

Lots have inquired about doing this challenge themselves and I must say
it's not for the weak minded.  I'm hurtin' over here.  Especially with all the new releases
from CHA. ugh. I just wanna buy 1 new itty bitty stamp, puhleeze?!

PS If one more person becomes a follower, I'll be at 60 and that's a nice round number
you should do it! Of Course more than 60 is great too!

Ooooooo! So pretty! I love the pops of pink, too. The second one is so gorgeous in the B&W. Your challenge sounds pretty rough, but I admire that you're sticking with it!

Love the black on grey!
So after seeing your challenge last week I am now trying it! I was trying to figure out something to do and I think this will work. I've got about a dozen people doing it with me! A lot of us are treating ourself to a small purchase when we get halfway through. So you should treat yourself to the itty bitty!
