Colour Inspiration and an appology

I didn't get a chance to get the Brown Paper packages up this week. I didn't seem to get much blogging done at all this week. I am going to work on getting stuff up with more regularity. I have been making lots of cards lately mostly thank you cards for all of my hostesses!! That's right on top of getting to pick out free stamp sets and other products for free, you get hand-made cards from me!!! :) Is there really anything better than collecting the mail and finding a personal hand-made greeting??? So, because I have been actively card making lately, I had a chance to do this weeks Colour Inspiration challenge.
Black, grey and white. Classy, crisp and bold!! Perfect for a card style that I came up with yesterday and is one of the cards that my club girls will be doing this friday (but in a different colour scheme). The inspiration for the card was from a picture I saw from Leadership 2009. The card from Leadership was using the Manhatten Impressions folder for the Big Shot, but I loved the look!

Stampin' Up "Fifth Avenue Floral" stamp set, "Warm Words " stamp set
