Hawaiian Flower Patch

If you can't stamp or work on scrapbooks for several days or a week, is it hard for you to get back in the swing of things?  I didn't craft hardly at all last week, and then yesterday I had to put my craft room back together (we'd moved the table out for the garage sale, and everything was in disarray) but even once I was all set back up I just kinda sat there and stared at everything, wondering where to start.  Happily, once I got started I was okay, and I made this:


The greeting is from Four You, a little stamp set of four greetings that I just love and it's retiring.  On the bright side, there are lots of new greeting sets in the new catalog that are just waiting to become my new favorites ;)

My mojo got a jump start thanks to Retro Sketches:


And I got my color combo from a brand new challenge, TGIF:


Love those colors together.  Except maybe Coastal Cabana would be even better ;)  I think we should replace Soft Sky with Coastal Cabana.  Or maybe Baja Breeze.  That would be a tough call, I love both of those colors way more than Soft Sky...

I digress.  I've got a busy day ahead so I'm going to get to it.  Cheers, peeps!

A lovely bright and cheery card. I think we all feel like that at times but it hasn't taken you long to get back into the swing of things with this card.

I'm going to have to go into mourning when Coastal Cabana is officially gone. :( Thanks for playing along with us at TGIF!

You are starting a colour debate, I say replace Pool Party with Coastal Cabana and keep Soft Sky, how wonderful would it be if we could have a say in the colours.

I love your card and it has reminded me to play with that stamp set, I have not used it.
