Poppies and Limeade with Pear Flowers

This will be a quick post, because I have to get up at 5 a.m. tomorrow.  Bleh.  I know, I know.  A lot of you get up at that time or earlier every day.  But let me tell you – I’ve never been a morning person.  Ever.  And there’s a reason I own my own business.  I don’t want to get up early and go to work.  I’d much rather stay up until 2 a.m. and then get up at 8 than to go to bed early and get up at o’dark thirty!  But tomorrow I have no choice.  I have to be in Richmond at 10, so we have to leave Stephens City around 6:30.  *sigh*  I’m not driving, though, so maybe I can sleep a little.

I realized with the catalog ending in May that we only have about four more months of the 2010-12 In Colors (Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Concord Crush and Blushing Bride).  I think these are my favorite colors ever, so I’m really going to miss them.  I don’t usually use retired products, and I don’t want a lot left over after June, so I’m trying to use them all up.  Well – I’m almost out of all the PP colors and I have four more months.  So I’m trying to decide if I want to buy more or ignore them for four months.  Oh, the decisions I have to make, right?  Anyway – here’s a card that uses two of the PPs (Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait) with Lucky Limeade.

Stamps:  Flower Fest, Fabulous Phrases; Ink:  Poppy Parade, Basic Black; Paper:  In Color designer series paper (hostess pack; retired); Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade, Peach Parfait; Other:  Fancy Flower punch, 5-petal flower punch, 2-3/8″ scallop circle punch, Everyday Enchantment ribbon & brad pack

This was very simple and quick, but I needed a card to match the tissue paper and gift bag for a gift I’m giving tomorrow.  This is almost a perfect match!

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

    well, that’s what i get for thinking i don’t like lucky limeade – it’s a great offset for the PPs and a great card!
