Old and New

My new (temporarily) favorite color combination today unites both old and old stamp from SU's Define Your Life set and a new embellishment from Doodlebug (enamel dots).

Oh frabjous day! (Name that famous author!)

I just love those enamel dots. They are flatter than I thought they would be, and they give such a nice shine and pop to a card. The kicky teal soft pool and orange soda color combo makes this, though.


I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Things were a bit crazier than usual around here as hubs ramped up for his first business trip in over a year. Now I can ALMOST breathe. Got a few little things to do, and the boys and I can relax into our family-of-three routine. We will miss our head chef and baseball-throwing buddy though.

Mom doesn't throw baseballs. She throws like a sissy, and runs when it's her turn to catch. Those balls are hard, people! I will, however, play plenty of Jenga and watch movies until the cows come home.

Off to walk the dog. Peace, my friends.

  1. Lewis Carroll, of course. Loving your range and teal creations.

  2. Beautiful CAS card and beautiful colors.

  3. Great design and colors. I love those dots, too!

  4. That colour scheme is superb. I am slowly but surely coming round on orange.Those enamel dots are pretty cool for sure.

  5. That's what the Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll said about your gorgeous card methinks!

  6. Callooh! Callay!
    Love the dots but I am not "into" those colors. They seem popular now and I will possibly come around, but right now, not so much.

  7. I have a turquoise planter that I love to grow orange marigolds in.
    In high school, when I had to memorize a poem for English class, I chose Jabberwocky. I just missed my 35 year reunion, but I still know it by heart. I sometimes recite it in my head if I can't sleep because my brain won't let go of a problem. Helps to derail that hamster wheel of thought.

  8. Lewis Carroll! It's a phrase I use a lot! I like this card - I think I must have a go at the color scheme ( not in my comfort zone!)

  9. Oooh! I love this Susan! The colours and design!
