It was another glorious night, cardmaking and watching The Office. I was enthused to use the new "in colors." Can you tell what my favorite of the 6 is? (hehe) The first card is from the set "Owl Together Now" and uses Hawaii Papaya designer paper. The other set is "It's a stretch" The inspiration is right out of the catalog, and I was so excited to make my very own! After learning the intricacies of that particular card, however, I don't really think it's feasible to do at the card party. I think more people need to make cards using the Owl Together Now set and post them, I've seen quite a few ugly examples but nothing that fun. Even the catalog examples aren't doing it for me. I know the set is much more cute/fun than that! :-)

Is it possible, it's really only Tuesday? Having a short week last week has left me feeling like this week is UBER long. I have some projects to work on, however, with the kids around not many of those get done. :-)
I have been wanting to do a card party for quite some time, and since I am SLOW at planning it out, I am thinking rather than the end of September, the first week of October. This is an example that I think I want to use for the party. I am also just excited to think that it's almost Fall :-)

This is a favorite set of mine right now. It is gorgeous. It was a little tricky to mount, since it is "double mounted." I think I figured it out :-)
Since I don't have a light table and brass templates for embossing, I used 1/4" circles (punched) to create the same sort of effect.
So I finally got a small window of time to do a color challenge. I definitely don't feel like this is my best card, but I did have a great time with it while my husband and I watched Season 1 of the Office last night. (finally we know what everyone is talking about). We've never watched it b/c Thursday night was Grey's Anatomy night for us. Anyway, I had to use Old Olive and Tempting Turquoise in lieu of the new in colors. (I can't wait to get my order!) Everything is SU except the ribbon. (it's a random brand from Michaels) I feel like perhaps a scallop edge along the top would make it more "finished." What do you think? I feel like it's missing something....
