First Blog Hop of VC Rocks 2013

Hello and welcome to our first Blog Hop for VC Rocks 2013!  Yes, it's time to play.  
Check back at this blog for more links. 
Ok, folks, I am not a photographer and would rather stamp than learn how to shoot photos.
Some of my pictures have an added green splotch in the middle. 
 Don't know why, but I hope you can still see the cards well enough.

I used Print Poetry Designer Series Paper, Garden Green & Vanilla cardstock, along with the new in color Pistachio Pudding cardstock.  I love this Sizzlet's Pinwheel from the Spring Mini Catalog.   The sentiment is from a new stamp set Really Good Greetings.

This card is really beautiful, without that green splotch in the middle. 
So pretty with the contrasting colors Raspberry Ripple and Crumb Cake/Very Vanilla.  
Once again I used Print Poetry DSP, Sizzlets Pinwheel and Really Good Greetings.
These first two cards were CASEd from Mary Fish at Stampin' Pretty. 

Using this sketch from Operation Write Home,
I tried to showcase the new 2013-2015 In Colors.
OWH has an abundance of sketches, great tutorials & much inspiration!!

The actual colors are a shade or two lighter, more pastel-like in real life. 
The cardstock I used is Whisper White, Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding,
 Strawberry Slush & Crisp Cantaloupe.
I also used mini-brads, ribbon and a sentiment from A Round Array.

My last card is my favorite! 
 I CASEd this from some talented person, but there is no name on the photo.
I used the returning colors in our Color Refresh to make the pencils. 
(I missed you Soft Sky and Bermuda Bay!)
I think the sentiment from Really Good Greetings makes this a great end of the school year or graduate card.

It was so much fun to make, I had to hold myself back from adding other colors!

Since my Mojo is back, I have some extra 
Magic Mojo Sparkling Dust 
that I am spreading everywhere!!
So, Go! Create!!
Do it now!
