Create with Connie and Mary 249

Hello and welcome to Saturday! I had a very nice dinner last night with my friends. We had a lot of laughs and some amazing dessert! It had peanut butter, chocolate  and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups! YUM! I’m off to Manhattan this morning to see my friend Kim and wander around and try to walk off last nights dinner. LOL! What’s on the agenda for you today?

Today’s post – Create with Connie and Mary Sketch 249…

CCMC 249

I wanted to use some more of my Sent with Love DSP before it goes away in just three short days! The base of my card is Island Indigo. The three pieces of paper are from the Sent with Love Designer Series Paper Pack. Across the middle is some Island Indigo Ribbon from Sale-A-Bration backed with some Pool Party. The greeting and image are from the Bombs Away Birthday Photopolymer Stamp Set. The greeting is cut out with the Ovals Collection Framelits dies and the “bomb” is cut out with my Paper Snips. A 2011-2012 In-Color Printed Brad finishes off the card. I hope that you enjoyed my Create with Connie and Mary Sketch card for this week’s challenge. Thank you for checking in and have a great Saturday!

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!
