Colour Me Happy!!!

In Colour Happy that is!

I can't tell you how thrilled I am with the new in Colours! I'll be honest with you: they are WAY outside of my comfort zone - I normally am not a lover of bright colours. But these are SO yummy, you just can't help but want to play with them.

I created these a few days ago the very moment I received my box of goodies from the man in brown. How fun!

My DD is past the age where she gives gifts to her teachers, but she has one teacher that she particularly likes, so I made a little notepad and matching pen for her. The second notepad and matching pen went to our family doctor with whom we had an appointment this past Monday afternoon. What better way to get my name out there, right?

I used Melon Mambo Cardstock as the base to cover the note pads. I used a piece of Razzleberry Lemonade DSP on the front and a strip of Rich Razzleberry Cardstock to hide my seem. The sentiment was stamped in Melon Mambo (which, by the way, smells REALLY yummy!) on Whisper White Cardstock and mounted on a piece of Rich Razzleberry which was cut using the Matchbox Die. I mounted the sentiment on dimensionals. I rolled a piece of Razzleberry Lemonade to fit inside the pen to complete the customized look.

What do you think?

Stamps: Matchbox Messages
Cardstock: Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
