I was so excited when I saw this stamp set in the mini catalog! My in-laws are big golfers and I knew I just had to have this adorable golfer to make cards for them! This style of card is called a gate-fold, because, well, it opens up in the middle like a gate! This is one of the “fun folds” we’re going to be making at my fun folds class next Thursday in Ashby. Let me know if you are in the area, I’d love for you to come!

Stampin’ Addicts has a new color challenge every Friday. This week’s colors were Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, and Baja Breeze. Tricky, tricky colors! I don’t really gravitate towards these two plums. While they are lovely, I never really think about them. That’s the great thing about color challenges, they help you step away from your usual choices. After mulling over these colors for a long time, I came up with this card. I think it came out super cute! These are fantastic colors together!

Here’s another Passover related card. Well, for me it is Passover related because of all of the frogs, and frogs always make me think of Passover. For you, a frog may just be a frog. 🙂 This is from a sketch challenge on a new website I have been visiting called Stampin’ Addicts. It’s a happy, upbeat group of crazy stampers like myself.  The forums are a great place to chat and the gallery is growing. Today’s card:


Stamps: Hoppy for You
Ink: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip

Yes, that did say “Tangoed” up in Blue. I went and had a fun couple hours yesterday with my friend Beth who is also a Stampin’ Up demonstrator. She had the most amazing swap cards that were done in Tangerine Tango, Pacific Point, and Chocolate Chip. I love, love, love Tangerine Tango and Pacific Point together! I wasn’t planning on using them for today’s Mojo Monday sketch. Nope. I was thinking about the sketch on the 100 mile drive home from my parents. I was going to use So Saffron, Riding Hood Red, and Basic Black with the new dog set, Man’s Best Friend. Well, let’s just say that things got a little frustating and that card did not end up fitting the sketch. It did come out cute, though. I’ll post it tomorrow.

Here’s today’s sketch:

Boy do I love those colors together! It’s hard to see, but I used the small polka dot Texturz plate on the big Tangerine Tango piece. Thanks for looking!
