Happy New Year!


First of all, Happy New Year to everyone. I'm really glad that 2008 is over and here's hoping that 2009 is better for everybody. Now, on to the card. How about that color? This green is called Kiwi Kiss for those who don't know. When it was first sneak peeked (peeked? poke? puck? whatever, it's my blog), people hated this color. They even tried giving it funny names, keeping with the SU! alliteration theme. Baby Barf, Peas Puree and my favorite, Very Vomit. And I have to say that when I first saw all of the new in-colors, I wasn't too thrilled. I remember thinking to myself, 'oh, surely we can do better than that.' I do remember loving Pink Pirouette right away. I wasn't crazy about Baja Breeze, and we all know how that turned out (love.it.). So now, after my first time using Kiwi Kiss, I have to say, I like it. It's a very strange color, but I discovered that a lot of colors go with it. And that horrible sin of sins (in my book, anyway), I really like red with it. See? Still growing. I do have to say, tho, that I still don't like orange no matter what. Orange just scares me. Ok, baby steps on that whole growing thing.

Stamps: Dream a Little (SU!), Fairy Tales (Verve), Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Memento Tuxedo Black, Kiwi Kiss (SU!), Paper: PTI white, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black & Raspberry Tart DSP (SU!), Accessories: Nestabilities, Copics: R27, R29, R59

How about Oily Olive? Silly silly, coming up with new names for colors. In the design world, they would count it as a "neutral." I know, Peas Puree a neutral? But that's because most other colors go with it. As, in this case, red. And the big circle looks like the sun to me. I love this card and the spring-like quality. Gee, do you think I like Spring?

I like the color. And yes you should be scared of orange, it is an angry color.
Happy New Year. I wish for a better year.
