behr hello.




Home Depot anyone?


I may have gathered a handful of behr paint chips.  One day I will paint in my 'design studio'.  If you've been following me for awhile, you may remember that green is my favorite color.


I was inspired by



While it seemed that people focused on the speech bubbles, I don't have any speech bubble dies and it's evidently super hard for me to turn on my cameo.

So what I was inspired by were the stripes of color that reminded me of paint chips.

I kept with the kraft base because kraft + green makes my ♡ happy.  I cased the rounded corner and called it good.

Thanks to everyone that participated in my birthday give-a-way!  Yay for Niki who won the Butterfly Reflections Ink Gift Certificate!  Have fun shopping!!!!

  23. Heehee..I had to chuckle when I read this. We're in the process of painting a room in our home, but while we were at the paint store I picked up probably more than my fair share of paint swatches because I loved the colors. I used two on my card yesterday. :)
