Well, here I am with a brand new computer!!! Still learning the ropes! Ever used Windows 8? It's just a bit different!!! Trying to find everything! Plus, everything on my screen looks different! But it's really cool!! I actually have a free tutorial at Staples tomorrow!!! lol I'm thinking I'll be exploring Youtube soon!!!

Hi to you if you are visiting from Helen's blog, Blue Dahlia Designs! I missed you all last week with the computer snafu! I did get to check out the other cards tho & was really impressed!!! Thanx for welcoming me back!

So anyway, this weeks color of the week was Raspberry Ripple! Our choices were to use Raspberry Ripple with either Old Olive and Pretty in Pink, or Crumb Cake & Perfect Plum. Now both are great choices. One is a little more springy & the other a little more subtle! Well I was creating during an ice storm so I decided to go with Old Olive & Pretty in Pink!!!

So here we go!!!

I am soooo lovin' this stamp set-Bloomin' Marvelous from the Sale-a-Bration catalog!!!! It's just such a sweet, simple set! I think it lends nicely to this card! 

So glad they came out with the Oval Framelits! Now for round & square too!!!  
I totally love these colors together!!! Hard to tell, but there's some "bling" in the form of Dazzling Details in the center of each flower and his little eyeball!

So here's a closeup of the bird! Nice, right? NOT!!! Unfortunately, I end up taking all my pics in the dark! I'm never around during the day, & it's so dark when I leave for work & get home! Can't wait for spring!!!!!!! But here's the idea anyway! He's on dimensionals so he has a little "pop" going for him!!!

So check back tomorrow for some sweet Valentine's cards! Yup, it's almost that time!!! Now pop on over to Liz's blog, Lizzy Stamps! & see what she did with these colors! I bet it's yummy!!! Be sure to tell her I said hi!

Happy Stampin'!!!
