Kraft, Ocean Tides, Black, Smokey Shadow and White...

I know that is a LONG blog post title but hey...why not right?  That is the subject of today's post!  One of my new favorite color combos!  And look!!  Its more than one color!  :) 

Today I have to cards to share!  Both using this color combo!  This first one is a CAS card!    I have had this sticker forever with this quote that I love and I just had to use it!  I think it goes well with this CC.




This next card is for my friend Barb!  I have known Barb for a little over a year now.  We got to meet in person after finding out that we were both designing for TAC's catalog last year!  It was so fun to go through that process together and chat and text, and chat some more and text!  LOL!  So anyway, Barb has become such a good friend and I am so lucky to have her! 
It doesn't feel like a normal day if we don't have a chance to visit! 
For those of you who don't know, Barb is known for her "creepy" blog Haunted Design House but she has a "normal" (hehe) blog over at Foster Design House
Let me tell you though, she is the least "creepy" person there is!  She even knows I am not a fan of Halloween and she still likes me!
She has a huge heart and is amazingly talented!  I love her to pieces!  OK enough mushy..here is the card I made her.....(and a new favorite of mine!)



Thanks for listening to me go on and on today!  Hope you have a great Wednesday!

Oh My these are wonderful creations. The color combo is very striking and you are a master at putting all of the elements together in a way that shows each but still leaves a crisp fresh look. I have another new hero!
