Color Challenge from JUGS #250

Hi again and thanks for coming by!  Today Vicki at Just Us Girls has a great color challenge for us today!  It's turquoise, green and lime!  Super summer colors, don't ya think?
 I've been in a coloring mood lately, so I stamped some Magnolia images that had never seen ink and this is one of them-Tilda with Love Cake. My Magnolias have come from Magnolia-licious here in the US.  Diana gives great customer service and gets the new collections quickly!  She also offers a couple of different discounts when  you order!
Tilda is stamped on Xpress it Blending card and colored with copics.  I use Just4FunCrafts color charts for help with color choices these days. It's quick to find a color I want and then I just grab those copics.  Here's the link to my Board on Pinterest so you can check out her site.
 I love using the random pearls, but I'm so bad at placement. How is it that other crafters use just the right numbers of dots or pearls in just the right places?!  Perhaps I used too many so I kill the effect?? I also love how the MFT pierced and stitched dies look on a card.  They are great!! My dp is from Papertrey Ink-Hawaiin Shores, Simply Chartreuse, and Limeade Ice.
Please check out ALL the inspiration on the Just Us Girls Blog (you won't be sorry!) and if you have some crafting time this week we sure hope you'll try our colors and show us your creation!
Again, my appreciation for stopping by!! Cheryl

Are you interested in attaining enlightenment and personal growth?

Try doing the following two yoga exercises daily:

Sodarshan Kriya Yoga

Sat Nam Kriya Yoga

Are you interested in preventing and curing cancer, Alzheimer's, high blood pressure, and many other common diseases using an inexpensive, natural indian spice called turmeric?

Take two teaspoons full of turmeric powder mixed with a cup of warm soy milk (or any kind of non-dairy milk that you'd like). Also eat 2 or 3 black peppercorns along with it, as the pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric better. You also need fat for the turmeric to be absorbed properly, which is why drinking turmeric mixed in water won't work. You have to drink it with milk or some fatty based liquid. Do this twice a day and you will start to feel amazing within a couple of weeks.

Lastly, please read the following two ancient indian scriptures which talk about the divine love of God:

Ananda Vrindavan Campu PDF

Govinda Lilamrta PDF

If you have any questions about yoga, meditation, spirituality, or natural cures, feel free to email me at
