Here I am!

Whew… what a day. Busy, busy, busy, but it is now just before 9 p.m. and I’m in my PJs and just about ready to fall into bed and call it a night… BUT I have one thing left to tend to 🙂 So I apologize for taking ALL day to get back here, but without further ado here is project #3 in the series of sneak peeks for the new Summer Mini Catalog: This card actually features a bunch of new stuff including two new core colors from the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog. I talked a bit about the Color Renovation coming with the next big catalog here. Check it out. In the meantime, lets talk about the card!

The new collections are Brights, Subtles, Regals and Neutrals and combines some of our old favorites, with former In Colors (Welcome Back Melon Mambo, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, River Rock, Soft Suede, Red Riding Hood Red, Rich Razzlebery, Wild Wasabi, Pink Pirouette and Baja Breeze) and five brand new colors (Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, and Marina Mist). What is also great about this new color program is our In Colors will stick around for two years instead of one and we’ll have five new In Colors introduced each year. That means after this
