So glad you came back for more… at post time, it’s midnight in Hawaii, but you East Coast early risers are greeting the sun! A special shout out to all the crazy all-night crafters at the RemARKably Hot Retreat this weekend 🙂
Choosing a favorite color family is out of the question, but the Brights are easy and fun to work with. Face it – they’re like opening that fresh box of Crayolas on the first day of school, all shiny with their perfectly shaped crayon tops and intoxicating with that special waxy-Crayola smell. Brights inspire me in the same way – fresh and lively!
Wouldn’t this card brighten up your birthday? I’ve made a special effort to see that ALMOST every card in today’s blog hop can be popped into a (Stampin’ Up!) envelope and mailed without extra postage. There are a couple of exceptions, but with rules, as I said in my first post, I make ’em, I break ’em! The Brights just don’t seem to have any bad color combinations.
That being said, there MAY be some color combinations meant only for Very Special Friends. Tangerine Tango and Melon Mambo sound like dancing words…or cocktails…or a dance you do while drinking (plenty!) cocktails!! Life’s too short, and to quote my son “YOLO, Mom – You Only Live Once”. Sounds good to me.
I struggled with a place to put a nice “Merry Christmas” on this card, but friends, if this doesn’t say it out loud I don’t know what would! I assure you I stamped a greeting on the inside – and the insides of these cards will be part of the follow-up posts later this week – but who could argue with ornaments on a tree? Not this girl!
Do you feel brightened up? My Maui friends are up past their bedtimes, my Easties are greeting the day, and the Westies – well, I’m guessing most of you are sound asleep. Bright Dreams!
Now head on over to see what Stampin’ Riri has in store for you…
