Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 43

Hello friends! Welcome back to the Monday Montage Blog Hop! You may have gotten here from the amazing Bree Renwick’s blog, make sure you select the “next” button below and that will take you to the next stop on the hop, the fabulous Dani Dziama’s blog.  I know we have some super cute goodies for you today!

As always this time of year I am super excited about a new catalog and new goodies but I also seem to have a few faves I struggle to let go of!  This year, in particular, I am so so sad to say goodbye to the retiring In Colors.  I have loved and used them all to pieces and will especially have trouble losing Coastal Cabana and Crisp Cantaloupe from my repertoire.  My stamp club Friday night was a memorial to these two lovely colors and I am sharing those pretties here today.

Two super easy cards.  The Coastal Cabana card features the bokeh technique.  This is soooo easy to do and is such a huge wow factor!  I just love the finished card.  Coastal is prominent from the bokeh background to the lovely twine and arrow.  I also love, love, love the Adventure Awaits set and will be sad to bid it farewell too!

The second card features the Smooches & Snuggles set and the Hi There set.  Hi There is retiring too and I have loved it often during the past year!

Lots of embossing this week….but that’s a good thing right?
