Hey all! Time for another Coloring Down the Lines Blog Hop!!! Hope you are all well! Spring is finally showing a slight smidge of itself so just maybe there's a light at the end of this REALLY long tunnel! Makes me very happy!

So welcome to my hoppers from Helen's blog! It looks like she's really working those inks! Nice job Miss Helen!!!!

This week's challenge is

Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron
   Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, Garden Green

Added Piece - use lace

I chose the first batch because they seemed more "springy" to me! Thought I would love the combo. I do like it-not love it! But as you know (or maybe you don't but will now!) the colors for the blog hop are determined by the color wheel! Our fearless leader Robbie (keep going on the hop & you'll find her amazing card always with a matching envelope!) uses the wheel to tell us the colors each week! So here we are!

Here's my card this week:

Kinda cute! Plain tho. I've been working lately on simple cards-what we in the card business call CAS-clean & simple. It's kinda my style anyway, but I have a wonderful customer whom I make lots of cards for, & she prefers them that way.  Easier to mail! 
This week was an extra challenge for me because it uses lace. I'm so not a lacy girl! lol  This is why I love these extra "challenges"-it forces me to go outside my box! I need that push!

So I used my Happy Day & A Round Array stamp sets for the images & sentiment. So glad A Round Array made the cut! Not on the retiring list! Phew! However, the Happy Day & Delicate Details Lace Tape ARE on the list!!! I have some friends who will be super bummed about that! The lace tape is so easy to use! I wish the inks/markers would stick to it tho.  Could make it more colorful. It's a glossy finish so the dye inks don't adhere. Maybe this means there's some great new stuff in the new catalog!!! It's almost here!!! Giddy with excitement!
Altho I don't know what they were thinking with retiring the Square Lattice Embossing Folder!! I use it so much! I bet there's a really cool one on the way to replace it though! I guess as long as I have my rhinestones I'll be happy! Not a lacy girl, but definitely a bling-y girl!!!

Anyway, I just decided to add a "fancy" fold idea to the card. Not so fancy, but different! So hope you like!

Now continue on to Liz's blog & check out her piece of art! Cool, right?!!! Then keep going! There are some amazingly talented ladies on this blog hop! Great for ideas & inspiration!  Enjoy!!!

And don't forget-this week at Stampin' Up! is FREE SHIPPING on EVERYTHING!!!!  With the new retiring lists out you don't want to miss out on this deal!!! This week ONLY!!!

Happy Stampin'!
