Card Samples

back in the grind :) but a GOOD grind

SISTAHHHHHS!! I have missed you!!!

Boston is over and we are back.. we had such a PHENOM time… it was a LONNNNNG drive (8 hours) but we stopped in Albany and shopped and slept and then we were off to Framingham!  We met lots of new peeps and of course our old buddies.. ate well, shopped well, shmoozed well.. picked up lots of new customers.. a GREAT time was had by all!

So having been away and in a car for 6 kadrillion hours I had time for myself.. and you know what that means? aside from  irritating ryan for 5.8 kadrillion hours?  READING MAGAZINES.. my favorite pastimes!  I got to catch up on new makeup products (part of Ryan’s irritation), recipes, fashion, what trends to watch out for etc… basically the main thing I found (especially in INSTYLE magazine) was that the trend is BRIGHT COLORS… and I mean REHEALLY bright colors.. so we were quite “BANG ON” with this week’s challenge! (makes me giddy).  Sistahs, do NOT forget about this week’s challenge.. here’s a little reminder of the colors

for all the rules, check out my post here

I got GREAT inspiration for our challenges too!  I also cut this out cuz it makes me realize how BRILLIANT and AVANT GARDE nickabella is! LOL (she’ll kill me for saying that)

check out Nicky’s card here.. notice how she colored in the letters to coordinate with the card?

Now check out Isaac Mizrahi’s add in IN STYLE

see the title?? BRILLIANT I SAY :)

see the title?? BRILLIANT I SAY 🙂

whenever I look in the magazines, I also ALWAYS look at new gadgets, home furnishings etc.. and LOVED these two pages… don’t ask me why!

Aren’t they inspiring?  Well, I am off to the one of a kind show to BEGGGGG Ketto for more images..LOL.. hopefully it won’t take another 2 years.. just kiddinK..   Hope to be even MORE inspired and find MORE goodieZZZZ

The second time we got the ‘are we there yet?’, ‘i have to pee’ from our daughter who was only 7 at the Sounds like you had a great time!!
