Fielding Blue

This card uses 3 of the colors that Stampin' Up! will be retiring on June 1st.  I have to say, I'm really sad about these three and a couple of others too.  But I'm really happy with the new colors and I can still use my stash of retiring ones.

Today I'm using Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy and River Rock.

The CAS Challenge at SCS this week is a sketch that won my CAS heart at first glance.

And the Tuesday Color Challenge, also at SCS is Quite a River Breeze (see colors above).

Addicted to CAS's Code word is 

I was so excited to see that they showcased my Friend Card, from the last challenge, on their Facebook page this week. 

And Simon Says Stamp's  ANYTHING GOES challenge.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

A beautiful CAS card, Bonnie. I never had River Rock but I have the other two and I really don't want them to go.

Congrats on getting on the Facebook page.

What a lovely card Bonnie. I love the textured card you've used and the colours are gorgeous. It's such a shame that these colours are being retired but onwards and upwards as they say! Congratulations on being our Facebook showcase in the last challenge. Thanks so much for joining the fun at A2CAS.
