I like your Peek-a-boo card. I think it’s cute. A favorite color combo that I like with grey is Always Artichoke-Elegant Eggplant-Pale Plum and Going Grey. I love the purple grey combos as well as the pink and grey.

Hope you find the combo that works for you. Thanks for a chance at a great prize

SO, doverdi

Please contact me with your info so I can get the set off to you!

I did make a card tonight featuring gray but will post it tomorrow as it may just be the sketch challenge! I have to think about that. Plus my batteries in the camera are dead! LOL! Dont you love that.

 So, Im sorry there is no sample-TONIGHT. I will say that site for color combos ROCKS!

Thanks again everyone, and those of you who posted links!!!

See ya tomorrow. Enjoy the holiday weekend.

Summer is near! My favorite time of year. I love the beach. But, before I get into that- I really want to thank Nancy & Tracey for responding to my cry for help in using my Wizard die cuts! Nancy gave me the correct “sandwich” for using my new dies!!! I hope to get some samples and maybe do a product review for tomorrow. Its up to the kids how much I get done!

Tracey gave me the link to a thread on SCS with lots of Wizard die cut info. Very informative.

Im still at a loss on the sandwich to get a good embossed die cut cause the sandwich info I have cuts-but doesn’t emboss well! Oh well.

I also want to thank Angel for the AMAZING link to theSU color combo site . OMW! I didn’t realize gray had so many combos! This site is WAY cool. You must check it out. It allows you to choose colors to get combos for-you can choose one or four! AMAZING! So huge thanks. I can see I will be living on there.

Today Im off and running! I hope to try one of the gray combos many have suggested. A winner will be posted later today! I have some errands to run, and told the kids we’d stop for Ice Cream! You bet I’m getting some more Martha goodies while I’m out. I feel some retail therapy is needed today.

I also want to tell you (for those who read Noah’s T-Ball nightmare story! LOL!) That Noah did an AWESOME job at t-ball last night! There is hope. I do have to admit we purchased him an XBOX game and bribed him with it! LOL! He cant get it for a few weeks. All he has to do is be a big boy and participate with the team. So, I dont know if he turned a corner or its the bribe! LOL!

Could be an expensive T Ball season 😀

In the mean time figured I’d leave you with something to look at.

Unique Seashell


Well you have heard me RAVE about all the NEW! sets coming out from Lizzie Anne Designs, and have patiently waited to see some samples. So here is ONE I can share with you.


I felt 2 views were necessary for this one.

The bummer-you really cant see the sparkle in the photo.

I really love the colors cause its a true beach feeling don’t you think?

I got this ribbon at www.ribbonsandbowsohmy.comand the second it arrived this idea popped into my head! Now I know my layout is not “original”, in fact its fairly common. A good ole’ standby even. BUT our layouts dont always have to be unique, its the details that make it stand out.

For this card I used Shore Thoughts. The seashell is gold embossed. I used my versamagic inks ( in seabreeze, aegean blue, pixie dust ) and a Fantasix brush to color the image. I have no idea why but I really think that is my most favorite way to color these days! The “sand” was done using my brilliance ink in pearlescent biege. So, in a word its very shimmery! I also stamped the sand stamp around the image. I then added some of my favorite Martha Stewart clear shimmery glitter with my glue pen the the shell.

My favorite part is the cuttlebugged bkgd. It was done using Fancy Corners and vellum cardstock. The bottom was done using the corner rounder (guard off). I think it imitates the seashell scallop.

My cardstock is SU! Whisper White, Sahara Sand, and of course Martha Stewart pastel blue (no clue of the name). I truly love her cardstock lately.

Well I hope this gives you your fix for the day!

Look forward to posting later.

Don’t forget tomorrow is the Saturday Sketch challenge!
