Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #18


I'm playing along today with the latest Raspberry Suite Color Challenge, mostly because I realized that I have totally neglected my New Leaf cardstock! It's such a nice green, but I guess I'm not really a green person...but I could be! As you can see, I didn't completely branch out with it on this card...lol...but at least I used it! Baby steps my friends, baby steps...



Aren't these colors great? That Dawn McVey, she knows how to pair up her colors! Raspberry Fizz is definitely going to make it onto some Christmas cards this year. It's just so bright and cheery, and merry! Although it's hard to see, I stamped a few snowflakes onto the mitten from the Snowfall set and also onto the Kraft background. I like the subtle pattern it added:


Now before I go, I have just one thing to mention. I noticed I have not received many comments on my last few posts. Zero, to be exact. Is there something wrong with Blogger? Are you not able to post comments? Were you abducted by an alien before you could press the "submit" button?!? Inquiring minds want to know. And I'm not too proud to beg...for a comment that is.










Stamps: Snowfall (PTI)
Paper: Kraft, Vintage Cream, New Leaf, 2008 Bitty Dot Basics - Raspberry Fizz Patterned Paper (PTI)
Ink: Vintage Cream, Raspberry Fizz, Dark Chocolate (PTI)
Other: foam mounting tape (3M), classic circle Nestabilities dies (Spellbinders), threading water punch (Fiskars), corner rounder punch (Fiskars), snowflake punch (Martha Stewart Crafts), dark chocolate wired ribbon

I'm reading your blog! Just wanted to leave you a comment to help you see if it's working or not. I know how you feel...it's tough to write for a blog if you don't know if anyone is reading! Suffice it to say, you have a reader in me. Have a great day!

I have been having trouble with blogger (leaving comments) when I view in firefox. Then I am too lazy to change browsers. I read every post though, I have you in reader. Lovely card! Love the bright pink mitten.
