Polka Dots????? Say WHAT??

Yeah, sorry about the wierd title.  I'm in a funny mood.  :)
I've made 6 cards and a scrapbook page this past 24 hours. 
My head is spinning.

I made this card to fit in two challenges.
The Paper Players has a Polka Dot Recipe Challenge
And Pals Paper Arts has a sketch challenge.

So I combined them both.

This card has a bit of a story behind it.
I was cleaning up my scrapping / dining room tonight after my creative flurry.
And, well, I'm sure most of you know that Stampin' Up! is coming out
with a new catalogue at the end of the month.

And, that means new In Colors.

This card is made out of the retiring In Colors.

I am really, really, really going to miss this palette.
Concord Crush has got to be my most favourite SU colour EVER!!!

And sometimes,

just sometimes,

Sometimes, In Colours come back to be part of the regular colour families.
Remember how Baja Breeze and Riding Hood Red started out??
So here's hoping that some of these colours return some day.


Concord Crush.
