Moving Day!!!

Hi there everyone,  sorry for no post yesterday, but I forgot my camera and computer at the house and we were staying in the hotel.  I remembered it today.... I am completely exhausted, everyone is already asleep but I am going to share some fun projects about the new in colours.  Just an update on the move so far.  2 1/2 days of packing, over 16 hours of loading and the moving truck is absolutely full.  Not one single little bit of space left.  I was almost wondering what we were going to have to leave behind.  I made sure all my stamp stuff was on the truck and then I was ok with anything that we would need to leave :)  It all went well and tomorrow we will be making sure the house is all ok, need to pick up Cricket and then we will be on our way to Cornwall.  We have our final walkthrough when we get there of the new house and then I fully plan on sleeping in on Saturday.  I have been waiting for that day for weeks! Ok, onto the creative post...

I love this years in colours - raspberry ripple, primrose petals, gumball green, midnight muze, summer starfruit!  I love the names as well.  For my customer appreciation day we created a card using the Pleasant Poppies background stamp set.  Here it is in all five in colours.  I also used this card as one of my swaps for Convention.  I love doing things that carry the same design in different colours.  It is perfect to package cards like these up in sets to give away and that is just what I did.  I took an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of card stock and scored it at 5 1/2 on the long side and then turned it around and scored at 2 1/2".  I fold up the 2 1/2" piece and then fold the piece in half like a book with two interior pockets.
