Stamping With Friends Blog Hop - Colour Refresh

Today I'm hopping with my friends in the Stamping With Friends Blog Hop sharing our favourite colours from the Colour Refresh.

I was so excited to see some of my favourite colours come back and also some brand new colours.  What are your favourites?  I chose Lost Lagoon and Misty Moonlight for my card - these are two of my favourites from the returning colours and I love how they coordinate!

Check out this fun card featuring the Let's Go Fishing Suite.  Don't you love it!  So fun to create masculine cards - used to be hard to do for me, but not now with this suite!
