Orange You Glad

Orange is my favorite color. Many years ago Rosemary, Janey and I went to a house party out on the Island (that's Long Island) thrown by Ro's then current beau and his housemates. Well, Janey had her share of hospbitality when this really cute guy in an orange tee shirt came in and she said to him "Orange is my favorite color" and ever since then that is a line that has gone down in infamy.

I actually like orange and even had an orange convertible beetle and boy was that a fun car to ride around in, but that's another story.

So the Pile It on Challenge is to use Orange and to use at least one more challenge. So you can see that I've used orange cardstock and orange dew drops, and one of the girlies has orange boots and the writing on the tag is orange, I tried an orange pin but it got lost in the orange ribbon. The other challenges are the My Favorite Thing sketch challenge MFTSC90 and the Our Creative Corner challenge to use three embellishments. I found a pad of adorable paper by K & Company called Daydreams. This DP is covered with umbrellas but they seem to have been covered up by the squares that the heads are stamped on. I adhered the orange cardstock to the umbrella paper, then I stamped the image from My Favorite Things "Rainy Day Friends " onto it. I also stamped it on three pieces of white card stock. The faces are colored with Prismacolor pencils and the edges of those squares are inked with Close to My Heart desert sand. Then they were mounted on dimensionals. Then I added the ribbon and the tag and that's that.
Orange you glad I didn't say...ah, what can I say, I'm easily amused.
