  1. Patti J. says:

    Can’t wait to read the ‘grey’ book! Beautiful work by all. Hope to play again soon – must buy some stamps first! lol…

  2. DianaY says:

    what a striking combinations of colours, must try it myself after seeing everyone’s wonderful creations. If you are really enjoying 50 shades of grey (and sequels), could it be a potential art journal page but we would have to tone the naughty parts or cover them up…

  3. Dolores says:

    So many gorgeous cards, sure glad I don’t have to pick a favorite.

  4. Mary J says:

    Oooh, what a great looking sketch, Em! And fabulous makes – thx for sharing!

  5. Jane B. says:

    Wow, what beautiful cards everyone!

  6. Jennifer bradley says:

    The cards are beautiful and everyone threw them together so fast. I am going to do the new sketch tonight so I can have something for next week!!!

  7. lindaH says:

    I’ll admit, I cringed when I saw this colour scheme and was glad I was leaving on a jet plane! But OH MAN….the gals ROCKED it! TOTALLY! I’m so impressed! Looking forward to coming back next week.

  8. lindaH says:

    OH! and i was so smitten by all the beautiful cards I almost forgot to mention the release! a release? OMG!!!!!!!!!!!! what a wonderful homecoming surprise.

  9. Jessica says:

    Very nice ladies…I had no idea yellow, blue & black could look so nice together.

  10. Carmen L. says:

    Love the colours! All the cards look great!!

  11. Debbie B says:

    I love Friday just because of this blog. Wonderful work ladies!

  12. Paula says:

    Just so we know…my blister was earned from walking in heat all day on the strip. Not from faulty new shoes. K? Lol the color challenge came out awesome ladies!! Great job!

  13. Margo S. says:

    This is a gorgeous colour combo – and some beautiful cards made with it!

    I read the “50 shades” trilogy in a week and a half, but never could decide if it was “good” or “disturbing”!!!

  14. Pinky says:

    You ladies rocked it again this week. I really need to find time to participate. I have not created anything in ages!

    I also just started reading Shades of Grey. About half way through the first book. I agree with Margo. It is a good read but at times a little disturbing….and I ain’t no prude. Before I owned a car I used to read on the city bus going to work. As I was reading I thought “I wonder how many people are reading this on the bus” LOL

    • Robb_eeie says:

      *Margo & Pinky* ~~ you’ve peaked my curiosity with the “disturbed” comment; can you be a little clearer?
      I’ve been tempted to download this book on my Kindle but so far have resisted … is it worth the read or should I allow my 84 yr young mother to read it first 😉

      • Pinky says:

        Robb_eeie – that 84 year old Mama of yours could probably tell us mid-lifers a thing or two! LOL!

        My “disturbed” comment pertains to the whole Man Controll issue. I am only half way through the first book so I have yet to discover if Christian’s controll issues remain in the boudoir or if they affect Anastasia in her everyday life. we shall see.

  15. Carol W says:

    Gorgeous cards ladies.

  16. Violet says:

    Nice cards once again. This is the first year I’ve used sketches and I’m getting quite addicted to them!

  17. Tanya Atkisson says:

    What great entries…I just love seeing the minibella play along!
    I read the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy in 5 days for my book club in March…I could not put it down, none of us could. I thought it was good. Some of it is a little disturbing, yes…but in all I enjoyed it. I had to laugh at Pinky’s bus comment…my cousin said a gal was reading it at their kids’ karate class and my cousin got a giggle out of it…
    Have a nice Memorial Weekend to all my American sistahs!

  18. Diana.L says:

    What a great collections. Thanks for the inspiration!

  19. Leslie G says:

    Lovely colour combo and lovely cards this week!!

  20. Lindsay H says:

    I love all the creations this week…great job!

  21. crystalbella says:

    Beautiful cards! Love this weeks sketch!

  22. Robb_eeie says:

    Emily …. are you saying I won? I’m pretty sure it’s me but keeping fingers & toes crossed 🙂 I still have one from last year that I haven’t spent (saving it for Ramona) so wherever that one is (online? I honestly didn’t know there was a diff?) you can add this and I’ll do some MUCH-needed spending!~!
    You made my weekend but I think you have a bit more to celebrate – that ? ROCK ? that is on your finger!! Love it and the design … just consider how fortunate you are as I had to wait 25 yrs. to get my dream ring 🙂 You must be doing **something** right and I don’t think you learned it from that “Shades of Grey” book ! 😮 XoXo

  23. Sandi N. says:

    You girls are amazing!!! Such great ideas.

  24. Julie F says:

    i’LL ADMIT i WAS SKEPTICAL ABOUT THE COLORS – BUT MAN WAS I EVER WRONG!! hOLY COW! tHESE ARE SOME OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CARDS! Nice job everyone! I read all 3 in a week and 1/2 too and I was robbed of all my remaining naivety!! 🙂 It was a most interesting read. I was reading while my daughter was getting her teeth cleaned and they asked me what I was reading – I was a bit embarrassed but told them and they laughed. One said that this will cause a new Baby Boom era “the Fifty Shades Boom” – all joking aside I wouldn’t be surprised!! 🙂

  25. Leslie W. says:

    Love the cards this week! I bought the 50 shades of grey trilogy….haven’t started yet!

  26. Corey Robert says:

    Beautiful cards as usual! I read 50 Shades of Grey in one day, and I have 50 shades darker half read. I put it down so I could get some cleaning done. My plan is to read the trilogy.

  27. Kerri Boucher says:

    On the second book and I cannot put it down they are great not my usual read but great anyway…they keep you wanting more!!!! the creations are awesome love them all.. hats off to all of you and Em enjoy the books..

  28. JoAnn H says:

    Lovely cards, stamping & coloring , when is the new release date?
    Need more sneeks and peeks 😉

  29. Lori says:

    I really like the colour scheme!

  30. Makalah says:

    Amazing how much variety there is in the card submissions just based on this color scheme! love it!
