Create with Connie and Mary 248

Posted on

Hello Friday… I have been waiting for you all week! How are we all doing today? You know that I’m good! I had fun at my Workshop last nigh with my friends Melissa, Crystal and Corrine. Thank you for a nice evening. It wasn’t a bad day here either yesterday but it’s a little foggy this morning. We are supposed to get up into the high 70’s today. What are you all up to for the weekend? I’ll be crafting! 🙂

Today’s card – Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge

CCMC 248

I felt the urge for some pinstripes! The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Neutrals Collection Designer Series Paper. The flowers and leaves are from the Secret Garden Stamp Set and are cut out with the Secret Garden Framelits Dies. A piece of Midnight Muse makes the frame that is cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelits Dies. The greeting is from the Lacy and Lovely Stamp Set and is cut out with the same. Some piercing around the edge with the Occasion Paper-Piercing Pack highlights the greeting nicely. I hope that you enjoyed my Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge card for this week. Thanks for checking in and I hope that you all have a great 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!
