wishing you brighter days.

Click HERE for my Pretty Pink Posh Shaker Blog Hop post


I've been crafty shopping, alot.  I may have a slight backlog of new goodies that haven't been given my crafty attention so I'm hoping this week will be the filled with that.

I picked up a lot of the newest Avery Elle sets from their last release.  

As a Washingtonian, I needed the Weather It set!


The Green paper is Crate and the rest is Studio Calico HeyDay.

I'm playing along with the AEI♥U Color Combo Challenge:



Although this is technically my post for Sunday, I need to post it earlier so that I can link up to the challenge!


Do you see the white embossed hearts above the sentiment?

The Hero Arts Heart Brad is from thee Lisa Spangler.  

Isn't the color combo pretty?  Truthfully I find color challenges, well, a challenge.  Luckily I have a vast supply of patterned paper:)
