Mixed Bag

I'm really not sure about this card, but hey it's done. Cardstock is SU, garden green, creamy caramel, lovely lilac and almost amethyst. I used what colours I thought went best with my serviette pic. Actually the card is growing on me.
Stamps - Scratched grid from CHF, SU script, Flexible everyday phrases, weathered.

I am absolutely happy with this one. Used my colour coach to get this combination - old olive, not quite navy, creamy caramel, lavender lace and so saffron. I picked the original colour from my lavender serviette and then went from there.
Stamps - SU script, curvy verses.
Best of all, I've finished my cardstock filing system. All is up to date until my new goodies arrive(in colour cardstock). Full filing cabinet drawer is the first pic. The other pictures show how I've labeled each colour. I've got them separated into each colour family too. Believe it or not, I really enjoyed setting this up.

.Hope you can see the actual names ok. I cut them out of the old catalogue which was had it anyway. Have since had my good copy of the old catalogue bound with a spiral, and the current one done too.They now open flat when I want them for referral.

This next pic shows the last lot of SU goodies that I received. I'm now waiting on the order with all the stash from the new 2008-2009 catalogue to arrive.This is a RAK I received from another member of Karen's SU team, Judy. She's used Roses in Winter set, which is now retired.
