Happy Sunday everyone! How are you all today? I’m good and I had a very nice day yesterday. The weather was nice and spring like, 54 degrees. I saw my friends Isabella and Mallory in the morning and then had some lunch and froyo with Kim. The froyo today was from a place called 16 Handles. I had salted caramel and toasted marshmallow, both were delicious! Later, my daughter Taylor and friend Maureen and I went shopping and had some Panera for dinner. A very good day indeed! Now today will be crafty Sunday!
Today’s card – Paper Players #141 – A color challenge from Anne Marie…
A very nice combo of colors, I don’t think I would have thought to pair Rich Razzleberry with the blues but it works quite well. The base of my card is Crumb Cake. The strip is from the World Spectacular Designer Series Paper Pack. For the greeting I used the Sweet Essentials Stamp Set and stamped it in Rich Razzleberry on Baja Breeze. The leaves are created with the 1″ and 1/2″ Circle Punches. Some 5/8″ Flower Trim was inked in Rich Razzleberry but I left some of the Vanilla to show through. A fun simple card for one of the special people in your life just to say “hey!” I hope you enjoyed my Paper Players Guest Designer card for this week’s Color Challenge from Anne Marie. Check out the blog to see what my other talented cohorts have for you and enter a creation of yours for us to see! Thank you for visiting and have an awesome Sunday! 🙂

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!
