Well, does everyone have their new catalogs yet? Or better yet, have you already placed your first order? All I can say is that the designer paper is to die for. I'm so in love with all of it that I'm sure I'm going to be ordering at least one pack with every order I place.

The second card that we did at our last class is using the designer paper, Prints. I love the concept of this paper. Double sided in very muted designs - almost monochromatic. And the best part is that you can buy the whole pack in one color, of your choice - there are 16 colors to choose from. Great idea when you making a lot of cards.

This card is using the paper is Soft Sky, one of the new In Colors. I thought that I could never part with Caribbean blue, but guess what? I can. This paper is wonderful. The background of the card was done with Baroque Motif and versa mark ink. The Blue Bayou is the perfect contrast to the soft sky, which I used for the center medallion and the matting. We chose not to use a sentiment because this is a good card to have on hand "just in case" and you can add the sentiment before you walk out the door.

Of course the ribbon is Cindy ribbon from the Starlit Studios. I also used Stickles in the center of the medallion to just give it a bit of glitz. Sorry that it doesn't show up in the scan.

I'll try and post the third project tomorrow - before the very busy holiday. Then I'm spending time on my "want" & my "need" list so that I can place my order from the new caddy !! I have to figure out how to make those "wants" into "needs" or my order is going to be pretty small !! LOL !!
