Dynamic Duos #8-Monochromatic and SO HAPPY!!!!

Oh my goodness! Saturday today and some exciting things happening in my little world! First of all, I am DONE report cards! I am so happy about that and secondly, today is the first round of auditions for Oklahoma!!!! Yippee! I am directing Oklahoma next year for our local theatre company and I am so excited to see who is coming out to audition today!!!

But today is also the reveal for this week's colour duos at Dynamic Duos. This week is a Monochromatic Theme of River Rock and Always Artichoke. I absolutely LOVE River Rock and never get to use it. When I chose this week's colours I was so pumped to see the elegant creations the design team would create and they do not disappoint! Here is my card, I hope you like it! I am really happy with how it turned out and let me say, I LOVE this new Summer Silhouette set!!!!


My dear, dear friend has been battling some tough days with life and I wanted to make her a serene and loving card, so let her know how much I care about her! She is one of those amazing people who never thinks about herself and I am proud that she is my friend. 

I inked up another new set, it is ALL butterflies and YES, has a matching punch! Oh and the sentiment comes from ANOTHER new set...yes, I bought them all! LOL! I am so happy with Stampin' Up's new catalogue, it is the best one they have had in years!  Won't you join us this week at Dynamic Duos!  Here are the links to the fabulous Design Team!
