If You're Sick of Red, Pink, and Black Valentines...

...why not try a tarty lime green and gray?

Pear Tart, by Memento, is my favorite green EVER, and now that I have the markers to go with the dew drop pads, I can edge a stamped panel, pop it up, and feel ever so clean and simple! 'Cause I've yet to find a cardstock to match this yummy shade of green....

Thanks for all the well wishes on yesterday's post. I'm chugging the cold medicine and eating lots of oranges and using my Vicks-infused Puffs. This too shall pass. Sooner rather than later would definitely be better.

stamps: Papertrey Love Birds
ink: Memento
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: marker, dimensionals


  1. What a special card.I really like it. It is refreshingly different.TFS

  2. Very refreshing indeed; that green is a lovely green. I hope you are on the mend and the Puffs are ever at the ready!

  3. I LOVE Pear Tart too! Don't have the marker though - sad. . . Your edging is so cool!

  4. Neat looking card. Colds eventually fade once they are done with us.

  5. Yes! Pear Tart and Bamboo by Memento ARE the BEST colors evah!

  6. Yes, I like the Memento colours - haven't got the marker pens though (Note - check out where to buy!!).

    Love the card - and I adore the colours.

    Hope you're feeling a bit better.

  7. I love this card. A unique Valentines Day card. Very refreshing. Love the layout!

  8. I would never have thunk to put those 2 colors together, but it works!!
    Feel better!

  9. WOW, Susan! This is absolutely stunning. Perfect in every way. :)

  10. I love what you did with these colors! Sending well wishes your way.

  11. Great colors, one of my favs.

    Try using a nettie pot. As gross as it sounds, it does help.

  12. Yup, am sick of red etc. Love that green too. Thanks for the hint! Your card is so cute.

  13. OMG...that color combo is to die for! I'm going to have to use it on something soon- thanks for the inspiration!!

  14. Love the color combo ... nice change right now! Take care!

  15. I never get tired of using red or pink, but I do like this unusual color combo too! It's great to step out of the comfort zone every now and then! Such a pretty C&S card!

  16. sigh ... I've said it before and I'll say it again: when I grow up I'd like to stamp like you!

    sorry to hear you're not feeling up to par!

    comfy jammies,
    cozy bed,
    big soft pillow
    for your head.
    worry not,
    the world can wait.
    take your time,

  17. I really really really love this card!!! That green is awesome, I might need to buy that soon!

  18. This is a sweet and refreshingly different Valentine, or anytime love note. I really like the green birds behind their grey bars.

  19. Are you psychic or have you been stalking my mind, Susan? I've been dreaming of this colour combo with THAT set myself this week!!! Glad one of us could put it into practice with style!
