Hi there!!! Visiting from Helen's blog??? Glad you're here!!! Hope you enjoy my creations as much as Helen's. She is amazing!!!!

So this week's challenge is Summer Starfruit with either Elegant Eggplant & Baja Breeze or with Real Red & Marina Mist. Now soooo many people are at odds with Summer Starfruit, but I have loved it from the beginning!!! It's an odd color-yellow with a hint of greenish to it! But I love it!

So I laid the colors out & immediately chose the Real Red & Marina Mist, because I totally saw a little boy's card & I needed a card for my son's best friend who just had a baby boy!!! But then I liked the way the other colors looked & need a thank you for dudes-it was perfect!!! So I made 2!!! One of each color scheme!!!

Now the pics' colors are somewhat distorted. I took the pics at night so the lighting wasn't good unfortunately!  But I totally love how these 2 cards came out! Perfect for the occasions!

So here's the baby card!

I used Aviary! I love these little birds but seldom find a use for them!! I'm so glad I got to use them! The 3rd one isn't hanging from nowhere! 
Throw in a Sassy Salutations & you're good to go!!!
I used the Silver Marker on the base stamp.  It looks cool in person-kinda like metal!  
I so love those Ribbon Slides from the Holiday Mini. I wish they'd carried them over!  

Here's the inside!

Yup-a retired stamp! But perfect sentiment for my little Derick Joseph!!! He's only 2 weeks old!! Like a little grandbaby for me! Can't wait to meet him!!!!

Well now here's the "Dude" thank you!!!

Plain & simple!!!The background doesn't look it here, but it really is 
Baja Breeze & the "you're amazing" is in Perfect Plum! Again-the lighting!!! The balloon has Irradescent Ice embossing!!! 
This stamp set You're Amazing tends to come out when I need a dude card! I like it!!! We got it as a "freebie" at convention, & I wasn't sure when I'd ever use it, but I do more than I thought! I love the little elephant with the party hat!!!

Here's the inside of this one!

So now I have 2 beautiful cards!!! I really like them both!  Hope you do too!!!
Now head on over to Teri's blog & see what she did with the colors! I'm sure I'll be CASEing hers soon-again!!!! Luv her style!!!

Happy Stampin'!!!!!
