Hello! We have made it to Wednesday once again and are halfway to Friday! It was another beautiful day here on Long Island, sunny and warm. Today we are to have rain on and off but we haven’t had any in a while so it’s all good. How is your week going so far? Mine is ok but as always I’ll be glad when it’s over!
Today’s post – Paper Craft Crew Design Team Sketch #41…
I thought it would be fun to pair some new colors together. The base of my card is the new Smokey Slate Card Stock* and for the background I used a piece of the Tea for Two Designer Series Paper and ticketed the corners. A Tea Lace Paper Doily is behind the Just Thinking Stamp that I stamped in Smokey Slate* and Bermuda Bay*. It’s cut out with the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies. A 5/8″ Flower Trim is inked in Smokey Slate* and placed at the top and in the lower left hand corner is a Designer Builder Brad with a butterfly from the Itty Bitties Stamp Set. Some pieces of So Saffron and Bermuda Bay* on opposite sides top and bottom complete the card. Thanks so much for coming by to see my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch. Hop on over to the Paper Craft Crew blog to see what the other designer have for you and enter one of your own for me to see! I hope that your day is a very good one!

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!
