It's happening!..and I am SO excited!

The planning for the October 2010  Card-a-Thon has officially begun.....
and I am SO excited!

Last October volunteers created1754 cards were made for our US military heroes with 10% donated supplies!
ALL of the cards were donated to Operation Write Home  and  Operation Quiet Comfort.

This years cards will also be sent, with a happy heart, to both of these wonderful organizations!

If you'd like to join either...or both...of these Splitcoast Stampers swaps...your help and donation of colored images  and or card candy will allow us to reach this years goal of 2000 cards!

You can visit the swaps here:

The "other" Card

This is the other Brocade Blue card that was done at last weekends Cards Only Workshop...

It's impossible...I not love this color combo..(even tho I had a hard time getting the Certainly Celery card stock to show its true beautiful color in these photos..)

The combination embossing gives this card some great texture...and inking the Bashful Blue embossed layer together with using dimensionals....gave this card even a little bit more depth and dimension.

The ladies at the workshop enjoyed working on both of these cards..and I think that Brocade Blue being this months color was a well received.

Finally! Something to talk about!

I can't believe what I am seeing..
The last time I posted here on my blog was January 24th...
Can that be possible?
(That's almost 2 months!)

I need to get with the program and start giving some much needed attention to blog again...

That being said..I DO have card to share with you....

This is one of the 2 card versions that was made at last nights Card Making Workshop that I do once a month.
If you've seen me post other info here on my blog about the monthly already know that we use one color palette per workshop..
Last nights color was Brocade Blue....and i think that everyone liked the color..
It's been a while since we worked with a shade of this was a nice fresh new look on our palettes.
Brocade Blue..Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue seem made for one another...
