I've Got the 'Blues'

I am making a quick post tonight of two cards,  I'm sorry to say, I'll be needing this weekend due to some sad news. My dear friend's  mom passed away very suddenly and my hubby's brother ended up in the hospital. So with that said I had to hurry to make two very special cards. I'm also running late so I'm going to list the items I used after each card, but the construction of both are easy enough to figure out.  So I apologize in advance for the brief discriptions.

For both I'm going to showcase some of my very FAVORITE new & old stamp sets and new & old colors. All of the items used can be found in the new Ideas Book & Catalog 2010-2011.

The first is a sympathy card using Bashful Blue CS embossed with the CB woodgrain embossed pattern.

Stamp sets: Elizabeth, Elements of Style, Thoughts & Prayers, Word Play. Cardstock; Bashful Blue, Gray, Whisper White. Ink: Mariner Mist, Early Expresso, Pear Pizzazz. Ribbon: Bashful Blue.

The second card is a get well card using Pear Pizzazz CS and the new Greenhouse Gala DSP.

Stamp sets: Friends Never Fade, Upsy Daisy, Thoughts & Prayers. Cardstock; Pear Pizzazz, Early Expresso, Whisper White. Ink: Mariner Mist, Early Expresso, Pear Pizzazz. Ribbon: Bashful Blue.

Well there you have it. I hope you like them.

PPA50 and some Punch Fun!

This is going to be a really quick post, since I made and posted this card today! Whew... I was trying to get it done for the PPA color challenge (Gray/Saffron/Choc chip) which is due tomorrow at noon. I LOVE the Gray and Saffron together, but I have to say, I had a hard time with the gray and chocolate chip.
I knew I wanted the card base in Saffron, and LOVE the new DSP Lap of Luxury 120436. Every side is so pretty. Going to love this with the pale pinks too. Umm.
Well back to my card. I fussed around with some choc chip brads, NO didn't like that, ... then I tried the Choc chip ink.... NO didn't like that either..... so as you can see I only managed to sneek in a snip of ribbon for the brown. Oh well, that will have to do. Now for the good news... I DO LOVE the new Elizabeth stamp - 117120.
 Wow!  is that going to get a lot of use in the very near future. Hope you like this one.

Well you know me... have to have some fun too! So my next card is made using lots of punches to make the Owl for a male "get well" card. Isn't he cute. I've seen this punch owl on several blog around, but I'm still looking forward to getting the new Two Step Owl Punch 118074 in my next order, because you know I LOVE owls. Right Hootie?
To finish it off I stamped the sentiment from the new Word Play stamp set (120308 wood or 120651 clear mount) in the new IN color; Pear Pizzazz........ wowzie! This set of 12 will also be one of my favorites to use for just about everything.

Well they are both much nicer in person, but I just HAVE to find the perfect place to take photos, as most seem fade out when posted..... uuummmmm????? I'll have to work on that too.
Well that's all for now... Hootie says "THANKS for stopping by and please leave a comment.
