Review Day & Makeup for the Weekend

Today, we are kicking off a review of the July Releases from Paper Makeup Stamps. AND, we have a new Makeup for the Weekend challenge as well. Lisa Kind is our challenger and the challenge is to use a critter on your card or project.

Well, this challenge was perfect since we are reviewing the Retro Cuties, past and present, along with the Cutie Critter Sayings released just days ago.

I haven't had the chance to use Olive yet, so I wanted to ink her up. And, it helps that we just released a matching sentiment that is as sweet as she is. I cut the sentiment apart, it just adds a little more versatility for me this way.

This card also meets the requirements of Jen's SFYTT for this week as well as the color challenge at the Color Throwdown, CTD100. It's their 100th challenge and they're having a HUGE celebration. The colors are Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Real Red, and Regal Rose; I let my papers do most of the work for me.

We hope you can find to join us for this fun challenge this week. As always, when you upload, be sure to use the keyword M4TW34. Then, link it to the PMS blog so we can take a peek. You don't have to use PMS stamps, but if you have them, we love to see them.
