Coral Blossom Bithday

 I'm on a roll this week and in the mood to get some paper crafting done so why not.
I seem to be on a coral kick lately. So I was happy to read that today's color combination CC421 on Splitcoast Stampers was three of MY favorite colors.

Basic Black, Calypso Coral & Baja Breeze.

A girlfriends birthday is coming up this weekend and I wanted to make her a little something as I know she'll appreciate it. And since my city just opened our 1st Bath & Body Works Store I knew what I wanted to put in it. A pretty smelling hand sanitizer!

I still want to incorporate a card with this gift. I guess we'll see what the rest of this week brings. I'm on a really long stretch now before another day off is near.

Summer Sihouettes

I needed to get some sympathy cards made as it is that time of year when there seems to be a lot of passing's. Winter is supposed to be over and Spring is about to arrive. But I'm starting to question that as it is "still" snowing in my part of the country.

I saw this card by Adriana on Pinterest today and I new I wanted to CASE it as I have this SU! set Summer Silhouettes and haven't had the chance to ink them.

Personally I like my cards better
 with the certainly celery base. I also pop dotted the front one-layer panel.
The entire cards stands out better with a colored background.

 Celebrating 40,000 page views!!! It was to my surprise as I was about to write this post that I hit this milestone. Thank You to everyone who visits my blog to view my creations.

Tonight I just wanted to make a card from an idea I had in my head so this is what I ended up with. I did a random search for color combinations and this was one of the sites that popped up, The Perfect Palette so I decided to use this color scheme Coral and Yellow.

I used this weeks Mojo Monday as my card sketch.
