Hold on to Hope
If you follow my blog, you know that I am in love with the new In Colour Grapefruit Grove. It is showing up in a lot of my cards these days!! I love how it easily coordinates with so many other colours in our collections, and how bright and cheery it is. Today I have used it with Rich Razzleberry and Pear Pizzazz for my card.
I also love the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. When I was at OnStage in April I had the honour of meeting the artist that designed this paper. It was so exciting to meet Cathy and it really made the paper come to life for me, hearing her talk about her work in creating this gorgeous paper.
My gold butterfly is from the now retired Butterfly Thinlits, but you could easily swap that out with the butterfly from the new Springtime Impressions Thinlits. I am really trying to use up the bits and pieces that I seem to accumulate while crafting. I need to set aside a special day – Clean Up Friday – and use items sitting on my desk to create a project to share with you. There, a new project for me!! Watch for my first post for Clean up Friday next week!
