So maybe you've figured out that our Coloring Down the Lines blog hop challenges right now are working with the Neutral colors!

This week's choices are Sahara Sand, Bravo Burgundy, Pink Pirouette OR Sahara Sand, Pacific Point, Cajun Craze.  I chose the first combo. Trying to use up my retired paper!!!

So welcome back from Helen's blog!!! I just came from there! Gotta luv her card!!! Always so fresh!!!!

So here's a card I made for the MIL's 80th birthday!

Now I know it's rather plain & simple, but ya gotta know my MIL! She has saved every card I've ever made her & has them all displayed out on her hutch! I think that's really nice! But she likes things nice & simple! Too fancy is "wasted" on her-not because she's not worth it, but because she likes it that way!! And I might add, she LOVED this one!!!

I wanted to use up some of my Bravo Burgundy cardstock! Yes, it's going the retired route!!! 

This stamp is from the January Anniversary Birthday stamp set!  I use it a lot!!!!  I stamped it on some White Vellum Cardstock.  Thought it would add a little pizazz to the sentiment! 
The embossing is the fated Vintage Wallpaper! Don't know why this one is going! It's soooo pretty!!! It certainly won't be one on the "sell" list! 
I raised the whole panel up with Dimensionals to add some dimension to the sentiment. 
Those Oval Framelits are amazing!!! Wait until you see what they are offering in the new catalog!!! Can I just say-I'm happy with the Framelit selection!!!! ;)

So I hope you've enjoyed! Now join me as we hop on over to Laura's blog to check out her amazing card!! She is so creative!!!

Until next time!!!

Happy Stampin'!!!!
