Hi all! We are sadly back from our spa weekend and had such a wonderful time, we've decided to take some alone time more often! The first card I made following the color challenge on SCS this week hosted by none other than our own Carole Burrage. I HAD to play along, didn't I? It's very straight forward, and I seem to be grabbing Punch a Bunch quite a bit lately since it's the perfect set for *cards in a crunch*...please tell me I'm not the only one in sheer panic trying to finish a card 30 mins before the party starts!!! Right now I only have time for sweet and simple, and the punch sets work so well for that type of card that it's all I've been grabbing! I don't have the SU colors called for, but subbed Memory Box papers that most resembled Orchid Opulance and Sage Shadow and then used Kraft to stamp my main image on using Versamagic and SU White Craft ink. I think that is still my go-to white since I've not found aything else that is quite as opaque. The little trio of cards below I am using during the sample making frenzy next week in MA. This is an event where store owners come to get a hands on look at products offered by the various rep companies and also an opportunity to take classes from the company owners and best learn how to market their products, cool huh? The projects I will be teaching the class on were created by Jen Del Muro and Lauren Meader, both of which were gracious enough to let me create a class based on the projects, and I can't show them to you just yet since they were picked up for publication! Soon though, I hope! The little sample cards were also created using P-a-B. I wanted to create a few different styles just to launch the creativity and then let the store owners take it from there! Hope you will all join us on the 20th for Celebrating MFT day on our SCS forum, it's a way to see the amazing work done with all the new sets each month, hosted by our own Jen Del Muro! And lastly...Carole Burrage and Michelle Giraud are cooking up a very cool newsletter that will go out very soon to all those subscribed on the site! BOLO...

VERY cool about the projects your doing, so top secret!

And I think your card for the color challenge came out fantastic!

I'm so glad you had a wonderful weekend. And you aren't going to wait that long again!

Beautiful cards Kim. I seem to be needing cards last minute too for some reason. You have some really cool projects coming up and I can't wait until that newsletter starts.
