Pinks and Orange Galore

Wow - I need to move away from pink and orange for the rest of the week!!!!!

I created this first bold bright card yesterday evening for the sketch at 365 Cards. The colours got chosen because of the felt flower....I received them from a secret sister and they came in four colours - orange was my choice of the day.

I was excited this afternoon when the doorbell rang shortly after I got home from school and the UPS truck had delivered my pre-order from the new Summer Mini....so I got to play after supper. ( I actually got distracted for a little while with the puzzle I'm working on right now - what's up with that??)
I wanted another bright card for this ice cream cone so went to my Pink Flamingo paper......and orange was the partner colour. I used Summer Sun and Yoyo Yellow for the top scoop. The sketch for this card is from Midnight Madness from last week.
Finally - Today's/Yesterday's Mojo Monday Sketch. I had to do some thinking on this one.....but I like how it turned out. The colours - Black, Pink and White are from the Colour Chef this week.

There are a number of meetings coming up this week and a stampin' event on Saturday.....speaking of which - I have some cards I can share from a Diva Breakfast I was at on this past Saturday - Better get on that.

I hope your week is filling with things that give you enjoyment in your little corner of the world....thanks for dropping by!

Beautiful cards, yet again! For what it's worth - I LOVE orange & pink - especially together. Reminds me of an orange and pink swimsuit I had when I was a kid.....it was my favorite swimsuit of all time! See - brings back good memories of summer and all that jazz! :)
