After many days of waiting very impatiently, I have in my hot little hands some cardstock and inks in the new "in colors" that Stampin' Up! is adding to our range from 1st September.  As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I get the opportunity to pre-order some of the new goodies, and I can tell you now ...... they are GORGEOUS!!

Here is this week's colour challenge over at the fabulous ColourQ site:

I've made a card that I think would be just right for a girl's birthday:

Stamps: Party This Way, Bring On the Cake
Card: Pool Party (out 1st Sept.), Basic Black, Whisper White smooth and textured, Melon Mambo
DSP: Tangerine Tango and Melon Mambo Patterns Designer Series papers
Ink: Basic Black stampin' pad, Pool Party stampin' pad and marker, Tangerine Tango stampin' pad an marker, Melon Mambo marker
Other: Blender pen, Neutrals buttons, Crystal Effects, Scallop Edge border punch, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Mini Glue Dots, stampin' dimensionals

I am off to have lunch with my sister today, to celebrate our birthdays (that fall within a day of each other).  I hope you, too, have a lovely day!
