Are you ready for another new In-Color – this one is Lucky Limeade….

Obviously a new shade of green.  To compare here are the greens on this card from left to right – Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Lucky Limeade, and Wild Wasabi.   And a look at the new stamp set  Pennant Parade.   The mat on the card is also Lucky Limeade and the “hello” on the Jewelry Tag is part of the same stamp set.  Along the base of the little trees I used the Lucky Limeade Stampin’ Write Marker (still lovin’ the fact that we have In-Color markers now) to add some grass and then I sponged the bottom edge too.

It’s really a quick card but I think I was having some Stamper’s Block yesterday.  I was trying to work on swaps for convention and an idea for the Lucky Limeade card and I made lots of proto-types that ended in the trash.  Things just weren’t coming together.  I finally got this one figured out about midnight and I am happy with it.  But my convention swaps haven’t gotten anywhere… and I have several to come up with.

3×3 Love Note swap – 105 done

50 Shoebox swap – base cut but I want to use a new stamp set that I’ll order today and hope I get it quickly…

60 UStamp swap – nada

25 STARZ group swap – nada

General Convention swaps – a few MDS Hybrid owls cut but I need to make them into actual card fronts.

and I’m planning Roommate gifts and gifts for friends – I have ideas for both of these just haven’t actually tried making them yet.

and then a project for the STARZ meeting – that one is also coming up blank for me right now

Any way…. I placed my last order for the 2010-2011 catalog yesterday afternoon and was surprised that it also got shipped – I guess SU is trying to stay all caught up in preperation for the start of the new catalog TODAY!  Yes today we can start ordering at noon Utah time – that’s 2 PM Georgia time.  And I’ll be ready because I need some stuff for my convention swaps and I am leaving in 12 days.  I can’t wait!

Thanks for stopping by today!
