Lovin' this Sketch and Colors!



When I first started using Stampin' Up! stuff, I was in love with Tempting Turquoise! And then as the colors collections have evolved, I sorta found my new favorites (Baja Breeze :) Yes!). So I haven't really used Tempting Turquoise as much anymore. But when I saw the Color Inspiration at Stamping 411 today - I knew I had to jump back in with one of my old favorites!!


Aren't these colors just refreshing and summer-like?! Love 'em!



Then I went over to Connie and Mary's and found this super-fresh looking new Sketch Challenge. I love a good Sketch! Life's good with a good Sketch!



So then I decided to use the new Fabulous Florets set - it is FABULOUS, huh?! Well, I really like it! I like that the set has some outline images and some solid images too!


And I used one of the new sayings from the new word set Happy Greetings. The hello actually comes from a stamp that has three hellos on it, but I just chopped it for the one I wanted :) And I don't know about you, but whenever there's a new word set - I gotta get it!! You always need new words! And this one has some other awesome ones too.


Well, I was supposed to be doing a million other things, so I better run. But I'm glad I started my day with this card - too fun!


Thanks for stopping by,


Julie
