today's adventure brought to you by the letter "G"

Do you send Good Luck cards?  I've not sent one nor felt a need to, but I am somewhat obsessed with elephants, and *had to have* this new stamp set.  It's the first one I pulled out from latest order; I was going to CASE the catalog sample because I don't have any other ideas yet. I wanted to brighten up the colors so I looked over my challenge chart.  Jean's colors at Watercooler Wednesday were the only ones that appealed to me. I was a little worried that there were no neutrals, and it might be too bright, but I really like it:
stamp set - Lucky Elephant; ink - Sweet Sugarplum, Versamark; card sock - So Saffron, Bermuda Bay, Sweet Sugarplum; washi tape - Playful Palette

Our second "G" today is gifts, or presents, for the current Jingle Belles challenge. I was really hoping to make at least one Christmas card every week, but I missed last week due to my crazy January schedule, and I almost forgot about this prompt.  When I saw the gifts in the photo inspiration at Christmas Card Challenges, I remembered, and had the perfect colors, too:
stamp set - Santa's Sleigh; ink - archival Basic Black; card stock - Real Red, Whisper White, Gold Foil; Big Shot with Layering Ovals, Stitched Shapes, and Santa's Sleigh framelits

Great good luck card Kathe. That's such a wonderful Elephant image. Glad you joined us at the Watercooler for this week's colour challenge.

Kathe, I love that elephant stamp. This is a great way to use it with the Challenge colours! Thanks for playing along with the Watercooler!

Oh my, Kathe, what a perfect use of that Elephant stamp! I love the way you've layered Jean's colours and have stamped on the Bermuda Bay and Sweet Sugarplum cardstocks with their matching inks. I agree that this card really didn't need any neutrals to be complete. It is just right exactly as is. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
