You Made my Day ...


I am really glad to say that as I type this, the weatherman assures me
that it will be sunny with beautiful clouds in the sky.
So fingers crossed that it will be that way when I awake on Thursday morning!

Jaclyn Miller, our Color Story Coordinator always knows 
how to bring the color and this week is no exception.
Personally, I am always stumped when it comes to bold
colors but it didn't take long to come up with my idea.

I recently bought a bunch of dies from Memory Box and couldn't wait
to play with this one.  The 'Country Landscape' is so delicate and was
a great way to highlight the golden yellow called for this week.
My favorite 'Clouds' die from Lil' Inker Designs was a perfect way to use
the two shades of blue and WA-LA!  
Clean and Simple indeed.

This week, we are happy to have

Simon Says Stamp

back with us as our sponsor.
They always offer a terrific shopping spree to the winner,
so you'll want to make sure to play!
