Get Used To These Colors!

I think I found a great color combo. Now I do admit, these cards came from scraps that were on my desk from the GSG swap card I was working on, but I am lovin' the combo- Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, and Pink Pirouette.

These two cards are going out to two of the three girls who have Birthdays on the same day (7/28). I couldn't believe it when I was writing up my BRAK list for the month on July. Someone from each of the three swap groups I belong to share the same Birthday, not to mention so does my sister! Must be a good day :)
So the stars are all punched using my large and small star punches and the new In Colors mentioned above. The Birthday sentiment is from the set that is retiring, They say it's your Birthday (it's my favorite stamp in the set). I did combine these new colors with Blue Bayou (card base and double stitched ribbon). I thought it was a close enough match, at least it coordinates! The white cs is shimmery white. I need to order more of that stuff, it gives just the right amount of shimmer sometimes! Have a great weekend. I have a busy one since my sister and her girls are coming in for a visit. We haven't seen each other in a while and the boys can't wait to hang with their cousins.


  1. Fabulous cards Lisa! I adore all those stars.

  2. Love, love, love the colors! Fabulous, definitely case-ing this one!

    I do have all the GS sketches all printed out, and I even look at them occasionally, lol! I paid for it, so I HAVE to do it. I was hoping it would jump start me, so we'll see. Not til after next week though!

  3. Colors are great together, I love all the stars!! Have a good time with your sis!

  4. Hi Lisa,
    Just had to pop in and let you know how glad I am to have met you at convention. Wasn't it fun?
    Your card is fantastic, I may have to case it for my son's birthday.I love the colors and the layout, great work!


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
