Kindness Matters

Hi All,

I hope you're enjoying your 3-Day weekend!  Although we still have triple digits in AZ, this weekend always feels like the start of fall.  Maybe its the little bit of East Coast that I have in me...or maybe it's because football is right around the corner. Ahhhhhhhh....

For my card today, I wanted to use what has become my favorite new In Color: Raspberry Ripple.  What a rich, beautiful color.  It's the perfect meld of pink and red.


Like most of my creations, this card was inspired by another.  Unfortunately, I can't remember where I saw it :(  When I find it, I will be sure to post it.  One thing I do know, I loved how they paired the Newsprint DSP with the card stock.  It's peeking out in just the right spots.

Crumb Cake and Newsprint are a couple of my favorite things.  I use them quite a bit.  They work with EVERY thing.  I hope you like how I've paired them up here.  To order any of these projects, send me an email or click on the icon in the top right corner.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

This card is so pretty Julie! The colors and the newsprint...gorgeous. I love that scalloped border of newsprint at the top of the card. So unexpected. You've inspired me to pull out my newsprint (I love it, too) and use it soon!
