Guess what?!?! It’s FRIDAY!! Woo hoo!! One of my favorite days of the week! This was a very busy week and I will be super happy at 5:00 when it’s finally over. I’m out to dinner with my friend Anthony and his mom tonight. We are going to get him an iPad for his birthday! I always love a trip to the Apple Store and some time with my peeps is always great. I’m off to the city tomorrow to see some friends and wander around a bit. Then it will be a crafty Sunday! 🙂
Today’s card – Fab Friday Color Challenge Design Team…
I was inspired by my clever friend LeAnne’s card from Tuesday. I love the Chevron Embossing Folder and cut out it looks great. It does take a little time but the end result is quite cool. The base of my card is Crumb Cake. I embossed some Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Summer Starfruit with the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and used my Paper Snips a lot! A piece of Crumb Cake made into a tag and stamped with the Oh, Hello! Stamp Set tied with some Linen Thread finishes off the card nicely. I hope that you enjoyed my Fab Friday Design Team card for this week’s color challenge. Stop by the blog and see what my fellow designers have for you and enter one of your cards so I can see! Thanks to LeAnne for the inspiration and to you for stopping by. Have an awesome Friday!!

Woo hoo! The color renovation has been announced! I’m so happy that they have kept four of the five 2011-2013 In-Colors! I’m a little sad to see that Lucky Limeade didn’t make the cut but we also got some former In-Colors back too! Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride along with a new color Smokey Shadow. They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!
