First Thanks

I have a bunch of thank you cards to send out this week, so I've been pretty busy in the stamp cave.  It's absolutely killing me, because what I really, really want to do is play with all the new stuff I pre-ordered from the Holiday Mini.  They lounge there on the desk, singing their siren song, beckoning me toward certain doom.  Okay, well maybe not doom, but certainly toward ignoring the dust bunnies and hungry husband, and pile of laundry that grows larger by the day, not to mention finishing the thank you cards.  Not that I really have to be enticed to ignore that stuff, you know! :-D

Anyhoo, this is one of the scads of cards (I'm making three of each style) that I've been working on.  AND this is another color combination from my new best friend, the Color Coach.  It is Sahara Sand, Bravo Burgundy and Pink Pirouette.  Isn't it loverly?

I'm really trying to use up some of the retired Designer Series Papers, so this is from the Hostess Level 1 "Welcome Neighbor" paper pack, from Sale-A-Bration earlier this year.
