Hello! Today I decided to give the Mojo Monday sketch a try (MOJO135) I have to say this one was a little tricky for me. I really enjoyed using the paper pleating technique. This was my first time using that technique on a card and I love the dimension it gave the card.

When looking around on splitcoast today I noticed a posting about the retiring colors from Stampin up for their new catalog release. I think there are a lot that people will be sad to see go. However, this time around they are bringing back previously retired colors like WILD WASABI and BAJA BREEZE! I am jumping up and down as I loved these colors!!!

They also have announced the new "in" color names:
Daffodil Delight
Cajun Breeze
Early Espresso
Cherry Cobbler
Marina Mist
I can't wait to see the color swatches for these.

I might go and try to work on the Stamping Bella sketch for is anything for Mother's day.

By the way, does anyone have any blogs that have fun sketch challenges to participate in?

A New Image for me...from MFT's Pure Innocence line

I have to say I really love the PI images from MFT stamps. I have 10 of them and can't decide which one is cutest! Last night I got together with my friend and we decided to make a card from Jen's sketch for the week ( I really love this sketch! I know I will go to it again and again. As soon as I saw the image I was immediately drawn to the blue paper from Fresh Prints - Clothesline by Little Yellow Bicycle. The colors in this card remind me of the candy striper uniforms from the old days. I even took the time to design the inside of the card, (I don't normally do this)! I have seen a lot of people doing this lately on blogs and really think it gives the card a finished look. Hope you get a chance to play along with Jen's sketch and that you have a wonderful Sunday where ever you are!
