So, instead of a card today, how about some Blog Candy!!! What I have to offer you is one brand new SU set — Define Your Life. I’ll edit this post to add a photo in the morning.

So, to sign up for Define Your Life — just comment below, and tell me what color cardstock you seem to be grabbing for cards at this time of year!

This Blog Candy post will remain open until midnight on Saturday night, April 26, at which time I will have a random number generator pick the winner.

    I’ve been in a barely banana mood lately. Not sure why. I love it though!

  7. Jennifer says:

    I keep picking up purple. Oh and orange. And uhm, green. Oh I can’t forget blue! And red. I’m not so good at picking just ONE color that I use most coz I love them ALL. LOL!

  8. Jill says:

    I stocked up on Cool Caribbean last year and right now that seems to be what I am going back to over and over again.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  9. Margaret Hill says:

    Just love the wonderful ideas on your blog. You are such an inspiration. I’m really enjoying Gable Green right now–so bright, and fresh and Springlike.
    A close second is Blush Blossom–it’s become a real favourite that I reach for often and goes with so much.

    Thanks for such a fun contest.

  10. Kathy D says:

    My last few projects have been beach or nautical theme, so I have been using Soft Sky as my main color. Thanks for the chance at blog candy!

  11. Linda L says:

    No matter what time of the year it is I find myself grabbing for pink….can’t get enough of it I’m afraid:0))

  12. tina b. says:

    At the moment my favorite colour is rose. O.k. 😉 for springtime I also love a softly green.
    Rainy greetings from Germany

  13. I seem to be using green a lot at the moment, all types, from mossy to “dirty”.

    Maybe it is the spring – summer type feeling going on…

  14. Carol says:

    I really don’t have one color I use more than others. I just pick up whatever I feel like at the moment or what would go best with the stamps I am using. I love all colors! Thanks for a chance to win!

  15. Angela says:

    I’ve been using Groovy Guava as much as I can while its still around — I’m going to miss it!!

  16. SueB says:

    Love my plum and old olive … my fav color combination – and thanx for the inspiration and chance at t’riffic blog candy!

  17. Diana Curtis says:

    At this moment, I have been using sky blue and rose red. Look great together. All that could change since I really love pinks and browns. Oh I can’t decide. Thanks for the chance for blog candy.

  18. Diane Schultz says:

    Right now I’ve been using tempting turquoise, pink, yellow, white and green. All the bright spring colors. Just loooove your blog and have it set up in my Outlook under RSS feeds. Thanks for sharing all your wonderful creations and the chance to win the blog candy.

  19. Becky Yoder says:

    I’ve been using a lot of kraft color for my card base – sounds boring, but I love how I can mount something bright or soft on it and the colors of the stamping are always the focal point.

  20. Hope says:

    I’ve been grabbing whatever I fancy at the time – a whole variety of colours. It always depends on my mood 🙂

    Thanks for the chance at blog candy. I only recently found this site and it’s great – thanks for sharing.

  21. Renault Herrington says:

    LOVE your site. My favorite CS is Bright colors of Pink and Green.

  22. Wow, Sharon, what great candy! That is an awesome set! I love the brighter greens this time of year!

  23. Michelle (CraftySpice) says:

    I have been using Soft Sky a lot lately–It looks elegant with black and springy with certainly celery but always seems like a fresh choice. I need to restock before it’s gone. 🙂 Thank you for the chance at blog candy and also for the wonderful inspiration you provide on your blog.

  24. Karen D. says:

    The colour that I seem to be going for lately is the celery greens (sorry I don’t have the SU cardstock). They have such a fresh feel to them and we have been waiting a long time for spring to arrive here in Canada.

  25. I seem to be reaching for brighter colors right now but, also neutrals like Black, Confetti White, Whisper White & Kraft.

  26. Amber H. says:

    What? No ten minute card? I could have used a ten minute card this morning but I can take blog candy instead. Especially since i really want that set.

    I have been going for black a lot to make my images/sentiments pop more. And it goes with any color. Other than that, I haven’t been picking any color over another more often. (It’s usaully whatever cardstock I have more of at the time! lol)

  27. Amanda Angert says:

    I’ve been grabbing River Rock a lot lately. It’s a great neutral for card bases!

  28. Kerry J says:

    I know it’s odd – but I keep grabbing pumpkin pie – even though it doesn’t seem very springy! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  29. Sandra says:

    Gotta say I love the pretty in pink and certainly celery. They look great together.

  30. Donna says:

    Hard to answer that question, but if I had to, I’d say turquoise. Frequently I choose my cs to match a patterned paper that I’m using. Groovy Guava is definitely one that I’ve enjoyed, though. Thanks again for your inspiration, Sharon!

  31. Melissa says:

    I love your work!!! Bashful blue and Almost Amethyst!!

  32. Patricia Austin says:

    That would be pink and or yellow, combined with blue and green.

  33. rebecca wheeler says:

    I am drawn to the stampin up in colours…they are so fresh and vibrant for the spring…love your blog…thanks for all the inspiration…Rebecca

  34. Lisa Beem says:

    I have been reaching for red very often…I need to lighten up I think?

  35. Barbara Sillay says:

    Right now I’m picking greens and pinks – certainly celery, green galore, river rock along with pretty in pink. Love looking at your blog – it’s my daily treat.

  36. Jacque (SCS: Petals) says:

    Wow, what a generous give-a-way! The color I seem to grab for most lately is Pretty in Pink, with Certainly Celery being a close second. I’m not sure why I grab pink since I really don’t care for the color in general…so it must be the season. Thanks for the chance to win!

  37. Angel says:

    Hi Sharon! Hmmm…. I think I am always grabbing Soft Sky. I have got to stock up on it before it’s gone forever!!

  38. Nellie says:

    Oh, I love that set. My favorite color of paper at the moment is brown. Thanks for the chance.

  39. Karin says:

    What an awesome, and generous, blog candy Sharon! I’ll have to say any shade of purple is my in color right now. I did make a card with Pretty In Pink last night so maybe I’ll be coming addicted to that 🙂

  40. ChrisE says:

    I’ve been working on a couple of Mother’s Day gift sets, and seem to be using a lot of pretty in pink to go with my soft spring flowers!!

  41. Lyn says:

    My fav is Soft Sky……I’ll be sooooooo sad when it retires!

  42. ~amy~ says:

    Woo Hoo! Let’s see…I **love** wild wasabi….

  43. Ginny Schleich says:

    The color I have been reaching for is Bashful Blue. Thanks for the chance for Candy! Love your site.

  44. Tracy says:

    I love your site! I know I’ve said it before…

    I still love the In Colors for this year, but use the Purely Pom almost always.

  45. Cynthia says:

    I am into Groovy Guava right now for some reason…I love Certainly Celery as my all time favourite colour though.

  46. Ruth Allmart says:

    Hi Sharon – I seem to gravitate towards SU certainly celery at this time of year. It’s such a fresh spingy colour I think :o)

  47. Chris says:

    I tend to reach for blues or pinks………….anytime of year.

  48. Cheryl Sims says:

    I am drawn to certainly celery for my cards lately. Just love this soft shade and it coordinates with so many other colors. Thanks for the blog candy. Would love this set.
    Cheryl Sims

  49. Patti C. says:

    This season I keep finding myself using Barely Banana (and I am normally not a yellow lover).

  50. Jan L says:

    I’m totally into the pinks right now! Love to visit your blog, it’s so makes me want to create!

    I find myself reaching for a lot of greens and yellows. Spring is my favorite time of year. I am also reaching for my flower stamps. Thanks for sharing the blog candy and all your creative ideas. Mary

  52. Tracy says:

    Seems like I’ve been gravitating towards those greens, oranges and yellows….that retro kitchen-y colors! Remember the mushrooms in the kitchens w/oranges and browns…checkered valances?? Yeah, that’s my cards right now. I’m old, huh Ü

  53. Sherri says:

    I’ve been using lots of pinks – pretty in pink…rose red (I know it’s not called pink, but I think it’s definitely a dark pink!)

  54. Pat (Just4Fun2 on SCS) says:

    I seem to be doing a lot of Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip. Thanks for sharing!

  55. Marcia Luisa says:

    As a beginner, your blog has been, and continues to be, of great inspiration, and a source for learning new techniques. Your tutorials are so well done, that I can follow along pretty well. Thanks. Presently I am reaching for River Rock, Real Red, Groovy Guava, and any of the pinks (Real Rose, Pretty in Pink are my favorites) the combos I get are refreshing and bright (at least to me).

  56. Jackie says:

    Hot pink and lime green! With black for an accent. Sounds hideous, I know, but it actually isn’t if done right, I can’t seem to stay away from it!

  57. barb schram says:

    I keep grabbing all the greens! I have vowed to take all the green cardstock out of my studio! Lol.

  58. Vanessa Y. says:

    I seem to ALWAYS grab my Real Red Card stock, but with spring in the air. . .I just love Certainly Celery. Thanks for sharing stamps! I hope I win because I never win blog candy!

  59. Ruth says:

    I loving River Rock at the moment, so versatile you can use it for anything, especially the difficult cards like masculine or super elegant wedding cards.

  60. Dawn E. says:

    Whew! I’m glad I didn’t miss the 10 minute challenge! I’ll be sure to make it next week 😉
    I think I have been grabbing pinks and greens a lot lately….fresh colours!

  64. Jennifer Bay says:

    For me, I seem to be having a panic about losing Purely Pomegranate, and want to use it all the time before it is gone.

  65. LeAnne says:

    OH MY GOODNESS—Define Your Life!!! What absolutely fabulous blog candy!!! My knees are shakin’! I would have to say Soft Sky is one of my favorites….I will be very sad to see it go, just like Cool Caribbean….boohoo!

  80. Mary Jo Jones says:

    What a wonderful set to win! My first choice is pink and certainly celery…love the combination! It just seems springy.

  81. Trish D says:

    Wow, how generous of you!! I’d have to say that I’m reaching for ivory a lot these days. Just a tad more elegant than white, but still bright and fresh

  82. Val S says:

    Chocolate Chip or any type of dark brown cardstock seems to be my favourite right now. It’s such a versatile colour. You can pair it up with yellow, orange, pink, green, blue…it’s endless!!

  83. CookieCindy says:

    My favorite colors of cardstock year round is taken with teal and tempting turquoise from Stampin Up. Rose red would be another favorite. I love cool colors and really gravitate toward blue. I have to be careful or every room in my house would be painted some shade of blue!

  84. Tracy Y says:

    Certainly Celery has been drawing me recently. Also the new Papertrey colors!

  85. Starla(star) says:

    It seems that I’ve been going for the Soft Sky and Black….it has a spring feel to it, but makes everything elegant instantly!!
    I just want to say that I love your style!!

  86. Mudmaven says:

    I seem to be grabbing Tempting Turquoise and that has surprised me. I’m waiting for my latest PTI colors to arrive too and expect that they will partner with the TT really well for some fun summer cards. ~chris

  87. LorieW says:

    I love anything pink and green this time of year. So fresh and springy.

  88. susan Hall says:

  89. Cindy Vernon says:

    This time of the year I seem to be grabbing for light greens, pinks and purples. Great candy!

  90. Michelle T. says:

    I guess I’m jumping straight to summer with turquoise! And it doesn’t even feel like spring here yet!

  91. Denise says:

    I’ve been grabbing for a lot of blue lately.

  92. Kari says:

    I still use chocolate chip almost on every card somewhere! But, I like tempting turquoise as a bright color!

  93. Hilma says:

    I am using mostly spring colors… I am sooo tired of the cold I am just wanting spring to actually get here!

  94. Kathy Tabbers says:

    For some reason I have been pairing Spring colors with choc chip. It makes a great base. I also love using the pinks and reds.

  95. Debbie (DeborahLynneS) says:

    I have been using a lot of olive and summer sun. Not really Spring colors so much– but bright and sunny I guess!

  96. Marta Fosco says:

    I check your blog each morning at the office (hard to concentrate on work after that LOL) thanks for sharing your talent AND for this opportunity to win a beautiful set. I’ve been using shades of green – especially green galore. Marta

  97. Katie says:

    I love the 10-minute card idea!

    All my cards lately include oranges, yellows, or lavender. I sneek in light green here and there, too.

    EVERYTHING has polka dots included either in the paper, stamp, or ribbon. I don’t usually do polka dots.
    I didn’t even realize it until a friend said, “Boy, all your cards have polka dots. I love it!”

    Polka dots just make me smile!

  98. Kriss Huels says:

    I am and will forever be an Old Olive gal! It just seems to go with everything. Next in line is Pumpkin Pie. But not always with the Olive, or that would get pretty boring!

  99. buzzy says:

    I wouldn’t say that is very fresh, but chocolate chip is calling to me. Maybe because it works so well with all of my favorite pinks!

  100. papercrazy1 says:

    It is definitely soft sky and I have to order more before it retires *sigh*

  101. Velta says:

    Soft Sky here…I just love the cool color of the blue…it goes with everything. Thanks for the chance Sharon 🙂

  102. Keri says:

    I’m going for anything pastel and it doesn’t matter what color, just pastel. 🙂 GREAT candy!!!! Thank you for the chance to win! 🙂

  103. Allison says:

    Mmm…candy…I am all over that!

    Cardstock colors? It doesn’t matter what time of year it is but my Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip are always running low! I think it is my neutral for just about anything!

    TFS! And good luck finding 10 minutes today!

  104. Alicia says:

    I love your blog and all your wonderful ideas!
    I am loving Coral and Blush for cardstock colors this spring. I went clothes shopping with my 19 year old daughter, and everything is those colors! I’ve had fun creating with them!

  105. Pam W says:

    I always seem to grab for Tempting Turquoise, Pink Passion, and Green Galore when spring fever hits! Love those happy colors together.

  106. kari says:

    Wow! That is SOME blog candy!

  108. A.J. says:

    I saw a combination that I really liked, old olive and regal rose, I made a card using them and I am very pleased. I think I will make a few more designs with that combination. Thank you for the blog candy opportunity!!

  109. Shelly Smarzik says:

    I am really loving the bashful blue, real red and certainly celery right now. I guess because I am using alot of the summer picnic paper and the tart and tiny set. Love this stuff!

  110. Joan Fricker says:

    I am in love with Certainly Celery too! I love all shades of green, especially this time of year when everything outside is turning green and beginning a new year of life.

    Thanks Sharon for all you do. You give us so much and I truly appreicate it.


  111. Jean L says:

    I have just found your blog and really love everything you do. Thanks for everything. Right now, I am probably using more of soft sky, groovy guava and wild wasabi. Will be getting the soft subtles soon and am anxious to use those.

  112. stampinmarni says:

    i am reaching for soft sky over and over – also groovy guava. Guess i will be one of those that stock up before they retire this summer… thanks for all the hard work you do for your blog – love it, i am here almost every day!

  113. Patty says:

    I’ve been using navy, but mostly because I’m trying to design invitations for our December wedding.

  114. Nicole says:

    I’ve been reaching a lot for pretty in pink and also kraft paper – maybe not just because of the season, but of the particular stamping phase I’m in! 😀
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  115. peanutbee says:

    I just looked at my gallery, and I think the most common color I’ve been using is green (certainly celery or wild wasabi)…it just seems to *go* with everything…..maybe it’s because all the trees are starting to bloom and everything is getting *greener* outside every day…very exciting! 🙂

  116. Mary F says:

    Gosh, it seems like I’ve been using Wasabi (SU) and Regal Rose (SU) lately. Wish Spring and Mother’s Day that seems to be the main two colors. If I’m not using these, I’m reaching for some blues as well. Love, love, love your blog!!

  117. Denise Groves says:

    I keep reaching for pink and green! I just can’t get enough!

    Just love your blog. Look forward to seeing the 10 minute Tuesday card next week.

    Denise G

  118. Kathy says:

    My colors are blue and brown — the colors of my new grandson’s nursery. I’ve done a card for my daughter and SIL and lots of thank you’s for her to send out. I’m ready to move onto Mother’s Day and a slight change of color, perhaps pink and brown?


  119. Jo says:

    I tend to go for two different ones at the moment…pinks and also teal with red!! Fantastic blog candy….so generous of you!

  120. Kathy V. says:

    I have been picking up alot of Pretty in Pink & Glorious Green lately. Love the brightness of the 2 colors together. Have to add a bit of purple in there also – tis my most favorite color.

  121. Melissa says:

    I’ve been using a lot of pretty in pink lately… with certainly celery or chocolate chip.

    Thanks for the chance to win blog candy.

    I love Pumpkin Pie, I put it with some Mellow Moss yesterday and was pleasantly surprised by the outcome! A piece of Bali Breeze DSP and I had a really great spring card.

  123. pegg says:

    I love Certainly Celery right now! Such a nice springy color!

  124. Susanne says:

    for some reason i’ve been gravitating towards river rock, basic black and whisper white. the black stamping on white, then matted in black or river rock is very striking. so i better look to replenshing my river rock before it is only a memory in SU cardstock choices. 🙂

  125. Bonnie says:

    I’ve been reaching for a light aqua with a soft yellow. Seems spring-y to me right now!

  126. Harriet Skelly says:

    Actually as far as cardstock goes – I have been using white and either doing stamped single layer cards or dry embossed images. The color of ink Ih ave been using the most is probably pinks, greens and blues. Thanks for a chance to win a great set!

  127. Kim D. says:

    My favorite color of cardstock for this time of year is Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery!

  150. Sue says:

    For Spring time I like Pale Plum and Barely Banana or Opulant Orchid and Summer Sun or Elegant Eggplant and Marigold Morning. Can you tell my favorite colors! I love the look of purple and yellow together in any shade. In pastels, the combo is soothing and refreshing. In the darker richer shades, the combos are elegant and rich.

  151. Caitlin says:

    I love using Barely Banana and Certainly Celery or Wild Wasabi or Pretty in Pink and Only Orange. Hooray for Spring!!!!!! Thanks for a chance to win.

  152. Angie says:

  153. Deloris says:

    I’ve just discovered the combo Sahara Sand, Taken With Teal, and Whisper White. Love it!

You are a huge inspiration to us!

  185. Sharon in NE says:

    Cool Caribbean!

  186. Jayne says:

    Wow! That’s extremely generous of you. The color that I seem to be grabbing is pink which is a scream because I’m not usually a pink person. Love your blog…it’s so inspiring. Thanks.

  187. Ivonne says:

    I guess lately Cool Caribbean is gravitating towards my projects…..maybe it’s my secret desire to have a pool in my yard! Secret because we could never afford it, but I can swim in Caribean paper for now!

  188. Skye D. says:

    I keep grabbing for green. We have had a long winter up here in Minnesota and I’ve been patiently waiting for things to green up!

  201. Lyn says:


    I recently discovered your blog and always look forward to seeing the beautiful cards you make. Thank you for all the tutorials too! So, for paper I keep reaching for – it’s Bashful Blue! Probably because it matches my favorite designer paper (Summer Picnic).

  202. Shirley Grubbs says:

    Purple, definitely purple.

  203. Melissa says:

    I’m really into greens this time of year – so Certainly Celery or Wild Wasabi are my picks.

  217. Lynn Brown says:

    I’ve been grabbing for pumpkin pie. I love that color.

  218. Christina says:

    I really love using neutrals like Kraft and Caramel for bases, but for spring I also like pastels! Thanks for the opportunity for this candy!

  219. dr.fine says:

    I guess I’m the only one who held back some Buckaroo Blue for some summer denim cards. I love celery, but I’m ready to make some summer fun cards and I see them done in soft denim blue for some reason. Thought I’d work on some Bar-b-que cards and some Fourth of July cards. Last month I made a heap of spring cards that I am now using and I’m ready to move on to something new. Love reading everyone’s lcolor choices.

  225. Stephanie says:

    Hi Sharon, your work is always so elegant, I get so much inspiration from many of your cards. Right now, here in Oregon, we are having record cold temps – it’s the same in April as it was in January, doggone it!! But my colors have been inching towards spring – Always Amethyst, Blush, Soft Sky, Pretty in Pink, Red Rose or Pomegranate (not necessarily all at once). Anyway, thank you again!!

  226. Julie Reardon says:

    I’m still lovin’ Chocolate Chip… combining that with almost anything else is just a fab combination!

  227. Wendy (songbirdwc) says:

    What wonderful blog candy! For colors, I am stuck on Soft Sky. With anything. But I just can’t get away from this color! Unless it’s to combine it with Blue Bayou, but that’s too wintery. For now I’m moving toward Soft Sky with a hint of celery and other soft subtles…

  228. KC says:

    These days I find myself reaching for blues and greens.

  229. Mollie says:

    Certainly Celery:o) Can’t get enough of that color!

  230. melissaS says:

    Lately, it seems I am using greens and browns a lot.

    Bev J. (Maxell-SCS)

  237. Sharolyn says:

    Groovy Guava has got me hooked…Thanks for a chance at some great blog candy! And all the inspiring ideas from your site!

  238. Michelle says:

  239. Connie G says:

    Favorite colors are so hard to choose but right now I love using wild wasabi. I think it reminds me of the green lawns I hope to see really soon!!!

    Love your stuff – thanks so much for sharing, even if I DON’T win the set!


  244. Lisa R says:

    Love your blog…I am a daily stalker!
    Wild Wasabi seems to be the color I am constantly replacing. Sure am gonna miss it when its gone!

  245. SmilynStef says:

    Chocolate Chip is my go to color.

  246. Kira says:

    I’ve been grabbing a pretty pale yellow alot. It’s from walmart so it doesn’t have an actual name. But I just love it. Goes with so many yummy colours. That, or browns.

    And that is so sweet of you to give Blog Candy!

  247. Jen Glover says:

    Definitely the orange! Too fun! Thanks for the chance to win! WHOA!

  248. I am loving certainly celery right now. Come to think of it, I am always loving Certainly Celery.

  249. Sara J says:

    I still seem to grab for the chocolate cardstock. But with spring colors to brighten it up as this winter seems to keep on going… Thanks!

  250. JulieN says:

    I am using Groovy Guava a lot lately. And So Saffron. And Certainly Celery. Anything to brighten up the cold days we are still having!! Thanks!

  251. JoAnn says:

    Wow, Sharon…lots of people want this set. Thanks for everything. I had to check out my gallery and don’t really see ~a~ color. I gues springy looking colors.

  252. My favorite right now is Pumpkin Pie. Who woulda thunk it? I couldn’t stand the color when I started stamping but I have seen so many pretty samples and now I’m hooked. Sharon, your blog is awesome and I so enjoy stopping by each day.

  253. Renee Clark says:

    Certainly celery is always a favorite esp. this time of year when things are getting greener outside!

    As always, thanks for sharing through your blog.

  254. Dawn (stampinscotsgirl) says:

    Hi Sharon! What wonderful blog candy! I haven’t had much time to stamp lately, but I seem to always tend to go for a white based card and I am really digging on Papertrey Inks new colours; all of them, lol!!! Their perfect match line is just wonderful! Thanks for the opportunity:)

  255. Michelle in Mi says:

    I am constantly grabbing the blue & yellow cardsstock this time of the year.Maybe it’s the blue spring sky and yellow forsythia buds I am seeing that are making me enjoy these colors.

  256. Amy says:

    Lots of pinks and browns.

  257. Peggy F says:

    WOW! I have had this set on my wish list. I enjoy your blog Sharon, and I can’t wait to see you in Sayner in 10 days! WOOHOO! Anyway, I always seem to grab colors out of the Earth Elements family. That’s where I feel ‘safe’. ~ Peggy F

  258. Carole B. says:

    Love your blog. Such wonderful cards! Thanks for sharing!

  262. Smriti says:

    I’m new to this art and initially I started with colored CS but now I’m sticking to white CS as the base. For layering, I mostly go for the brights.

  263. Janet says:

    I always like pinks and purples, but this time of year I tend to use more pastel versions, like Pretty In Pink and Lavendar Lace. Thank you for the opportunity to win such a great set! It’s been on my list since it showed up in the catty. And I love your blog! Thanks for all of the inspiration.

  264. C Burke says:

    I’ve been using a lot of Papertrey white with various greens and accent colors for spring.

  265. Marsha says:

    I love yellows in the spring. But I also like apricot.

  266. Desiree Roesler says:

    Hmmm, it’s hard to pick just one but I’d have to say Pretty in Pink, I’m having a baby girl sometime in May so pink is on the brain.

  267. Deanna says:

    I go for certainly celery and green is not my favorite color at all. I don’t know why but always reach for that. Love your blog.

  268. cassie says:

    Pink – my favorite color. But I also have been wanting to use some blue….and green…and yellow….and I just bought some yummy ribbon at Michael’s today to do a black and white card.

    What a generous blog candy offering! Thanks!

  269. Amy says:

    Sharon – what awesome blog candy! As winter SLOWLY fades from the Pacific NW (jiminy cricket, we had snow this weekend!) I reach for green. Along the lines of: “Behind every blade of grass is its very own angel that forever whispers, grow grow grow.” (The Talmud) – Certainly Celery is always a fav – recently I have fallen in love with Old Olive and I want something pinkish growing on the end of the green… Oh! and anything that goes well with Real Red!

  270. Brenda H. says:

    ‘Love your blog…thanks for sharing your creativity!
    Well, I’m still making baby cards with Gable Green & Chocolate Chip…very pretty! Thanks for this chance to win sweet candy…I’d LOVE to play with some new stamps!!

  272. Heather Fullerton says:

    I would love to win this blog candy. It is a great gift. Thanks for giving great blog candy. I choose lots of different paper but Spring does bring out the certainly celery color often. It is just such a happy color. Again, thanks and I hope I get to be the lucky one.
    Retired Heather

  273. Lisa H. says:

    I’m reaching for Tempting Turquoise and Chocolate Chip. I think I’m being influenced by the comforter sets I’m seeing in the Sunday ads. Thanks for for offering blog candy! I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

  274. Menda Hayden says:

    Awhile back I ordered two packs of summer sun and it turned out to be the wrong color for the project I was doing. so I am overstocked with it. I seem to be grabbing it to try and use it up. Thanks for the blog candy, this is a good one. Oh please magic generator pick me pick me.

  275. janice says:

    Love to come and visit your website all the time, it’s great ! i tend to go towards the trendy colors (brown and blue and brown and pink) then a side of me goes towards the hot colors that *pop*! pinks, oranges, red, all bright and colorfilled!!!
    wonderful candy that you are giving away ( me), i know that whoever (me)gets chosen (me) they will be thrilled(me,me,me!)
    have a great day!

  276. LouBelle says:

    Soft blue colors – like the sky!

  277. Cindy says:

    Apricot! and all of those cool tones! Thanks for the inspiration and keep those ideas coming.

  278. Kathie says:

  280. I reach for the all the bold brights!! Love them this time of year!!! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  281. Martha says:

    I’ve been reaching for Soft Sky and Groovy Guava. Guess I’ll have to reach for something different next year! Martha

  282. Juliana says:

    I need to put the teal cardstock down and walk away!!
    I am beginning to think I can’t make a card without it!! 😉

  283. Jill Swain says:

    I seem to be using a lot of pretty in pink and purely pomegranate.

  284. Pam B. says:

    I love Chocolate Chip with any color (well, 99% of the SU colors, anyway!)—but I especially love using it with Pretty in Pink. This time of year, though, it seems I’m gravitating toward using Chocolate Chip with any of the Bold Bright colors. Nothing like pretty, cheerful colors to get me thinking of the beautiful flowers I know will be here soon!
    Thanks for the chance to win some awesome blog candy. Your generosity is evident in everything that you do. Have a wonderful day!
    Pam B. (4Hounds)

  285. #1volunteer says:

  286. Eileen M says:

    Until I finish working on wedding favors for one of my two daughters who are getting married on the same day in May, I won’t be able to stop reaching for buckaroo blue (I loved all of last years’ SU in-colors!!), silver, and white! The first daughter’s favors are ALL done!! 🙂

  287. Vicky says:

    I am using the In Colors as much as possible as they won’t re available much longer although I plan on stocking up real good!
    Thanks for offering such great candy and thanks for sharing all you do.

  288. Monika/buzsy says:

    OMG! This is the yummies candy I’ve wished for for a long time! Pick me, pick me, pick me machine! TFS! My Groovy Guava paper is going fast these days, but I think Old Olive is my old time favorite… I don’t use spring colors that much…

  289. Gretchen Belknap says:

    Sharon- The color I seem to grab lately is Pretty in Pink. Mostly because I seem to have an over abundance of it at the moment!! Actually, I like that color and often pair it with celery, ballet blue or not quite navy. Love your blog and I would love to win this stamp set (it’s been on my list but always gets bumped off for some reason!)


  290. Chris says:

    Ohhh I’ve been dreaming of this set!! What a great blog candy prize!!! I have been reaching for soft sky and chocolate chip lately!

  309. Lori A. says:

    I seemed to grab Certainly Celery alot too…reminds me of the new grass and leaves everywhere right now. Thanks for a chance to win!

  336. Jenn B says:

    I just recently discovered your blog & love it! I usually go with a neutral color for my card base, but since spring has just started here I am more inclined to add some “green” to the mix. I would love some “blog candy”!!

  337. Cheryl says:

    Ooooh, thanks for the chance to win your blog candy. I can’t wait to see your card. I always seem to gravitate towards chocolate paper. I’m preparing for a workshop, so I also am using Bashful Blue, Groovy Guava, and definitely some of the new DP from Stampin’ Up.

  338. I am picking yellow cs as well right now! Thanks for the opportunity!


  339. Adair says:

    I can’t quit grabbing for Stampin’ Up!’s Soft Sky. I just LOVE that color! It goes with so many different types of stamps.

  340. Michelle Ip says:

    I seem to be using a lot of groovy guava, soft sky, and choc chip. I just love the color combo!

  341. I love real red lately. I think it has to do with the Summer Picnic DSP and the Tart and Tangy stamps!

  342. Heather D. says:

    I keep grabbing Barely Banana. I love that color!!!

  343. Hi Sharon – I’ve been using my new Summer Sun and Berry Sorbet from PTI lately they are great bright colors for spring!

  344. DawnieJae says:

  345. terri says:

    I am using alot of rose red right now.

  346. Marilyn Y says:

    I’m ‘Defining my life’ with Pink Passion to celebrate Spring, Easter, Mother’s Day and just for the joy of living. Every day of the year is Spring….constant temperature, cool breeze, sunny, flowers all around and pollen everywhere because all the fruit trees are bursting with flowers. Everything’s great except for the vog (volcanic smog) in the air.

  347. Debby says:

    I have been using a lot of bright colors lately. Real Red, Lovely Lilac, blues. But yesterday I found some 12 x 12 paper at a dollar store 4 for a dollar that is browns and pinks. So will be working with them this week.
    Angel hugs
    Debby @ Debby’s Stampin’ Heaven

  348. Giovana says:

    Lately I’ve using a lot of Groovy Guava and different kinds of green.
    I love your blog, it is awesome!!!
    Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy.

    God bless you

  349. I can not believe I just found your blog this very minute! Where the heck have I been! I can’t wait till I get home tonight to spend some time looking around. I love your SCS gallery. And what timing — great blog candy! I don’t often sign on to these but I would love this set so –what the heck. Thanks for the offer and the inspiration. Oh yea, my favorite colors right now are the East Coast Prep colors and the Summer Picnic — bright, cheery and fun!

  350. Joyce says:

    I tend to lean toward yellows this time of year. I guess I think of spring, chicks, sunshine….and it still goes so well with all other pastels, or even some earthy colors. Seems to me to be a very versital color for spring/summer.

  351. adriann humphrey says:

    thanks for the chance to win.
    i love colors that go with choc.chip. i just made my daughter a birthday card that i put rudy read and buckaroo blue w/ cc.

  352. Martie M says:

    Red – all shades – but my favorite is a rich true red – not oragney. Never seem to have enough of this one.

  353. Rachel says:

    Yellow and green seem to be the favorites at this time of year!!

  354. Angela says:

    I am loving chocolate chip and pinks ! Thanks for a chance to win !!

  355. Sabrina aka okimom2girlz says:

    Sharon you are to good to be true :D. You already know I love your Blog and all you do. To the question about which cs, well, let me see. I like Groovy Guava, Bashful Blue, any shade of pink and Chocolate Chip.

    Thanks for the chance to win, you are the BEST!!!!!

  356. Inkyhive says:

    The color I use all depends on the card I am creating. This week I am making – working on an order, 10 cards for a man, so I am using mostly earthtones.

  357. melanie pl says:

    Soft pastel colors always grab my eye this time of year: soft blues, greens, chalk and light brown… just like the beach!

  358. Julie says:

    I’ve been using soft sky and chocolate chip alot. I also like groovy guava.
    Thanks for a chance to win this set! Your blog is awesome as usual!

  359. Dee says:

    In thr spring I am always drawn to the pastels. Especially the greens.

  360. jessica says:

    I love to use pink and brown together!

  361. Dani says:

    Sorry you didn’t have time to do the 10 minute card today but I guess one of us will benefit from it!!! I tend to go for pastels like a lot of your other posters but I tend to use Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink more than any colors in the Soft Subtles group. It is pretty funny that I go for these colors since my favorite color has always been any shade of purple and I hardly ever use that color.

  362. Wanda Garrison says:

    Love Groovy Guava, but my most favorite of favorites is Ginger Blossom DP. Thanx for the chance to win. Love your blog.

  363. Brenda says:

    I am looking forward to ten minute tuesdays, sounds fun. The colors I have been reaching for lately is blue bayou and soft sky with very vanila. I had a hard time liking them, but now that their time is near an end I am finding I like them a lot. Thanks for the chance to win a great stamp set.

  364. Sandy Heringer says:

    I’ve been reaching for soft sky, mostly because I have the designer paper and doublestitched ribbon to go with it. Thanks for the chance to win!


  365. jojot says:

    I have definitely been favoring the roses and celery……for sure.

  366. I tend to go for colors like pinks , yellows and bright greens , nice bright springy colors !

  367. Maeion Moynihan says:

    I’m still crazy over groovy guava. I love all the “in colors” I will miss them when they are gone!

  368. Micheline Lueken says:

    Gosh, that’s a tough one. I prefer more bright colors now – especially Tempting Turquoise. I love springy colors, too. Okay, so I really like most of the colors. I really like the butterfly punch on your last cards.

  369. Rae says:

    The card stock I’ve been using most these days in that terrific Soft Sky–it works with so many other colors and is great. My all time favorite, that I can always count on is that Cameo Coral!

  370. Marsha G says:

    Your blog is my favorite – I keep peeking to see if it has come in my email yet while I am at work! BLUSH BLOSSOM is a favorite of mine right now.

  371. Cindy G says:

    I have been reaching for Real Red so much lately. It goes so well with the Summer Picnic DP and the fruit stamps that coodinate with that. Old Olive ribbon and we are set!!!

  372. yvonne w. says:

    Taken with Teal I just can’t seem to get enough of it!!

  373. Silke Ledlow says:

    I always love chocolate brown, but I’ve really enjoyed retro greens lately and orange lately. Not usually my colors, but I think winter has lasted too long! Love your cards.

  377. Laura says:

    I always love chocolate brown, but I’ve really enjoyed retro greens and orange lately. Not usually my colors, but I think winter has lasted too long! Love your cards.

  378. Sandy says:

    I love your blogsite! My favorites right now are Wild Wasabe and Groovy Guava, but that can change anytime.

  379. Nancy says:

    My favorite color is green but right now I am trying to avoid it – Can’t send everyone green cards for every occasion! I seem to be using a lot of turquoise lately.

    Love the blog candy. in fact last night I was wondering why I don’t have that set.

    I really love your blog, Sharon. Love your idea for ten minute cards!!!

  380. Shawn K. says:

    I’ve been using up quite a bit of my precious Cool Caribbean cardstock. I just love that color!

    Shawn K.

  381. Michele says:

    I seem to go for the “springtime” colors; pink, yellow, pale green…but I have to admit, I’m still addicted to chocolate! 🙂

  382. Cheryl says:

    Last night I made a card using Blue Bayou and Wild Wasabi – love, love, love it! I’ll be putting those two together again!

  383. Rose says:

    Also Real Red and Pumpkin–very energetic combos.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  386. Elizabeth Beasterfield says:


    I’m new to your blog but I love your cards and ideas. So, the cardstock I am going for is Chocolate Chip – because it seems to be the new black – it goes with many other colors and is yummy!

  387. KathyJ says:

    Certainly Celery 🙂

    I’m looking forward to 10 minute card Tuesdays! This will be fun!!

  388. Genelle Collins says:

    I just made an orange and navy combo for high school grad colors. It came out really cute!

  389. Michelle says:

    I am in love with chocolate chip right now.

  390. Cammy V says:

    Hope I win!! heheheee, my favorite color is chocolate chip when it comes to making a card. That’s the one I tend to go for….

  391. Deidre Mooney says:

    I love Wasabi…man I am going to miss that color! Count me in on the contest! deidre

  392. Shelly Skala says:

    I’ve been using a lot of pumpkin pie and brilliant blue lately. The combination of the two has worked well for me so far.

  393. Kathy B says:

    Tonight it was bright green and yellow. Yesterday it was purple. The day before pink. I guess I’m all over the place. I love spring! All the beautiful flowers all bright and colorful! The lovely sunshiney days. I can’t pick just one!!!

  394. Taya says:

    Lately I’ve been grabbing for anything in a shade of pink or green! Preferably together. So fresh! But I also really love Chocolate Chip!

  395. GailSK says:

    I have been using a lot of blues and browns lately. I really like that combination. It’s hard to pick just a few colours but I guess those would probably be the most popular I’ve been using.

  396. Michelle Woerner (sf9erfan) says:

    Hi Sharon, great set! Thanks for the chance to win! One of my fav colors right now is Pumpkin Pie. Of course, my go to color for accenting is Choc chip! Hugs, michelle

  397. Crystal (SCS happy2stamp4ever) says:

  399. Gloria in Lithonia says:

    Hi Sharon,

    I love using Groovy Guava and Real Red together on cards and projects. A close third for me would be Apricot Appeal. Thank you so much for your blog and especially for explaining the difference in the Nestabilities (sizes: petite vs classic).

  400. Libby says:

    Thanks for offering the blog candy! Lately I keep going back to Kraft, it’s one of my staples.

  401. Carla says:

    What great blog candy, Sharon! Thanks for the chance!
    I am always grabbing Blue Bayou these days. I just bought a pack, but I think I’d better stock up again before it’s retired!

  402. Amy Sabol says:


    Just love coming to your blog everyday and sometimes twice in a day! I absolutely love the way you have been using the butterfly punch — they add such airness to your cards. I am so inspired by your inspiring creations! Keep them coming as I enjoy all of them!

    The cardstocks that I have been using the most lately are Yo Yo Yellow, Tempting Turquoise and Gable Green/Green Galore.

    Would love to have some Wild Wabashi and Groovy Guava to play with one of these days!

    Thank you for your generosity in the blog candy.

    ~Amy S.~

  403. Beatrice says:

    The colours I use this time of year are blush blossom and certainly celery with lots of white. It’s just so soft and airy. Beatrice

  404. Joanne says:

    I don’t think that I have specific colours that I go for at a particular time of year – other than blue and white for Christmas. But at the moment I am using greens and browns as I am having a spate of men’s cards that need doing. Not very spring-like! I think that my colours are more down to who I am making the card for, rather than the season.

  405. Betty says:

    I just love your blog! I always come away with some new idea or inspiration. Lately,I have been using a color that I rarely reach for – Lovely lilac. I just bought the SU! Blossoms Abound. Lilacs are a favorite of my mother. Lovely lilac, Always artichoke, and gold metallic – just right for spring stamping.

  406. jeannen2 says:

    I love the stamp set you’re offering up as blog candy — I had a very good friend talk me out of buying it this month, then show me a card which used the set! She feels so badly now! Thanks so much for the chance to win it!! Jeanne

  407. jackie says:

    love love love greens and yellows thanks for the chance to win…
    have a great day

  408. Phyllis W. says:

    I guess I would say PINK any time of the year. Love your blog, keep up the good work.
    Phyllis – [email protected]

  409. Pat M says:

    Pink and blue seem to be the color of the day since I am making baby cards for friends.

  410. Sharon (happystamper62) says:

    Wow…I’m using Soft Sky, Mellow Moss and So Saffron and trying to combine any and all colors with Chocolate Chip, my new favorite! 🙂 Thanks for the offer of great blog candy; I love that your daily posts come straight to my email, Sharon! 🙂

  411. steph says:

    I go for beachy colors – blues, orange/yellows. I love the summer and those colors feel so fresh!

  412. Sue says:

    Lately I have been using Wild Wasabi and Groovy Guava quite a bit. I am also liking Choc. Chip combined with Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue or So Saffron.

  413. Mary says:

    I still tend to grab for the in colors. The colors look very “Springy” to me.

  414. Lindsay says:

    thanks for this opportunity! at this time of year (and throughout the year!) i tend to gravitate towards chocolate chip and pretty in pink…or any shade of pink for that matter!

  415. Rose says:

    Pinks and purples seem to find their way into my hands this time of year – spring, Easter, flowers – love it!
    Thank you for a wonderful site – I visit you DAILY!

  416. Tiffany says:

    Bright pink : )

  417. Shannon says:

    Anything that goes with the card fronts that I’m mounting to get rid of some bulk in the craft room!!

    But anything that goes with Bali Breeze and the Summertime one out of the mini are my next step!!


  418. Wendy says:

    I met with my friend last night so that she could help me choose more paper colors. She showed me the River Rock and I had to have it! I love it!

  419. Tasha says:

    I love my cool caribeean that I have left over from last year and purely pomegranate together right now. It just makes me happy!

  420. Erin says:

    I love your cards! Thanks for sharing your creativity with us.

    As far as color of card stock, I’m navigating toward the bright colors: tempting turquoise, pink passion, only orange, real red. I think that should be enough colors for anyone. So with that said, I’m ready for color as we’ve had a gray winter here in Minnesota.

  421. Jori says:

    Hey Sharon, I’ve been going through the DP from SU all year – it’s great. Lately, it’s been Summer Picnic and Afternoon Tea. Love using real red, bashful blue and old olive with the Summer Picnic. All new colors go so well with Afternoon Tea – Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabi – which I love – and Soft Sky. Your blog is super!

  422. Mary Jane D. says:

    Lately I’ve been using mainly light pinks and light greens. I really like the combination. Thanks.

  423. I am trying to use up my Groovy Guava!

  424. Sherri says:

    I’ve been picking lime green and bright blues. Love your blog by the way. Thank you for all of the inspiration.

    Lately I seem to reaching for Wild Wasabi and Soft Sky. I’m going to have such a hard time seeing these colors go when the new catty comes out!

  426. Charlene Merrick says:

    I seem to be reaching for bright and bold colors lately, especially to contrast them with black; they just seem to pop off the page!

  427. StampMom says:

    Wild Wasabi seems to be jumping onto a lot of my cards these days — such a bright, cheerful color and so complementary to lots of other colors. Thanks for blogging — great blog candy!

  428. Linda E says:

    I’ve justed used Blue Bayou and Chocolate Chip for a Blizzard Beach layout. I love using blue and brown together.

  429. Judy says:

    I love your blog. My last card was in hot pink and lime.

  430. Marcie S. says:

    I looooove grabbing shades of yellow and pink- cheery, and go well with springtime/baby/birthday cards, and much more!

  431. dorothy says:

    I have re-discovered your blog after not visiting in a long while. Loving all the cards with black and that gorgeous black sheer ribbon.

    Lately I find myself grabbing pinks and mauves and blues with certainly celery green, and a lot of rose and pink together, or aqua and brown or black. I can have so much fun pulling papers and coordinating them that I forget I am supposed to be making a card!

    certainly celery/with a pastel, so springlike
    aqua/brown or black

    Would love to win this blog candy……………………..
    thanks for having such an inspirational blog

    dorothy in bc by the sea

    I really seem to be using Always Artichoke and Chocolate Chip a lot. I am fairly new to stamping as well as being a SU demo. Thanks for the chance at some candy. I loooove candy. Peggy

  434. Deepa says:

    With wedding season coming up, I seem to be reaching for elegant combos like Certainly Celery with Black & White or Bashful Blue with Black & White. I’ve been eyeing this set and it’s on my wish list so I’m keeping my fingers crossed!!

  435. holly says:

    Chocolate chip and Groovy guava are my new combo platter this week!

  436. Vicki says:

    Pink–lots of pink. Must be spring … Great blog candy! Thanks for offering it. Define Your Life has been on my wishlist since it came out. I have my fingers crossed that you’ll choose my number. Love your site!

  437. Inkylin says:

    Pink, pink, pink and more pink card stock has been popping up for me all of a sudden. Any shade or hue of pink is what I am working with.

    Sharon, although I follow your blog and projects daily, this is my first ever post I love your style and that you share all your wonderful ideas. Lately I have been using SU “Sky” paired with black and white….love the contrast. Now that warmer weather has finally arrived I’m sure I will be back to my bright orange and lime greens.


  439. lori says:

    Hi sharon, Just wanted to say your work is beautiful. Your a great inspiration. I have been using reds and yellows thinking of the tulips that will come up soon, even if they get covered in snow a couple more time this year. thanks again for all your wonderful ideas.

  440. Sharon R says:

    I would have to say chocolate chip.

  441. Alicia says:

    I have been going to white on whites lately. I’ve been using various shades of whites, with clear glass (or glass look) and silver embellishments.

  442. Maggie says:

    I just love the combination of chocolate chip and pretty in pink or chocolate chip and groovy guava, or chocolate chip and bashful blue or chocolate chip and certainly celery. Love’m!!!

    Maggie 🙂

    PS Read your comments on Scor-pal and Scor-it … couldn’t make up my mind, so I got both LOL:) – on sale too !!! Can’t do without either now.

  443. leanne says:

    Lately it’s been chocolate chip! It goes with anything:)

  444. Dani says:

    I’m not sure about anyone else- but I’m definitely addicted to the In Color colors. My favorite is the purely pomegranate closely followed by groovy guava. I’m gonna be sad when they are no longer available!

    Thanks for having such a great blog. I enjoy reading it every day and I’m always looking forward to seeing your beautiful samples.

  445. Valarie Florer says:

  446. Eileen M says:

    I am loving greens at this time of the year, with rose or pink or purple. That’s not really choosing one, is it?
    If I had to pick one, it would be wild wasabi. I do love that color!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  447. I’ve been going for pretty in pink and barely banana lately. thanks for offering the blog candy! Love your blog and your creations!

  449. Paper Doll says:

    It is surprising to me, because I am not really a ‘pastel’ person, but the color lilac has been my favorite color this spring. I think my eyes are just hungry for color after a long, dark, colorless winter.

  450. Theresa Grdina says:

    I think that I am thinking spring!!! I am using a LOT of greens – old olive, wasabi, certainly celery….GREEN! Spring is finally in the air!

    Thanks for sharing such a generous gift!

  454. Diana Downey says:

    This time of year I am go thankful for spring, so I tend to pick spring like colors, pastels mostly. I am also missing the beach alot right now (I used to live in southern California…but I’ve lived in the midwest for thirty something years now). Celery, yellow, light blues. I love em all!

  455. Sherrie says:

    This time of year I seem to be using celery and other soft subtles. So happy it is spring! Thanks for the chance for the great blog candy!

    Great giveaway.
    Love the challenge this week.

  459. kearneykrafter says:

    I enjoy your blog very much, very “down to earth.” I have been reaching for Wild Wasabi cardstock lately. I love that green and it is so “springy.” Thanks for the chance at yummy candy!!

  460. Nicole P. says:

    Oddly enough, I’ve been loving my kraft cardstock lately. Maybe it’s that whole ‘bare tree’ look, though hopefully we’ll be all greened up here sooner rather than later.

    Great cards, btw. 🙂

  461. Joypup says:

    Love your blog… it is always packing a punch for me! I am grabbing a lot of pale blue and ivory and brown… robin’s egg blue just calls out Spring and Rebirth to me!

  462. Kathleen says:

    I’m still grabbing Wild Wasabi—I had better stock up soon, because I know I’ll still want it when it’s all gone! Thanks for the chance!

  463. I’ve been choosing greens all different shades and yellow.Thanks for the chance to win blog candy.

  464. Mary Lou says:

    Lately, I’ve been in love with Soft Sky – it just looks so pretty with so much and it just says fresh and spring to me. I love it paired with white for a fresh, clean look. Thanks for all of the awesome ideas. Love, love your blog. Thanks for sharing.

  465. Elizabeth V. says:

    What a great prize! I am using lots of certainly celery…I just love that color! It’s great with white, chocolate chip, pale blue, black…it is a just a “spring” color for me.

    I gravitate towards SU’s blush blossom

  467. Jan says:

    Like so many others, I like greens and pinks this time of year. I like your blog, too, Sharon, and look forward to seeing what new thing you’ve made to share. It’s always awesome!

  468. Charlene Rees says:

    The color that catches my eye seems to be PINK. Why? I don’t know, I’m not a pinky kind of gal. But there has to be pink somewhere on all my layouts or cards. I made a birthday card for my son, who turned 34 this year, and there was pink on it!

  469. Belinda says:

    Oh how fun! I keep grabbing for the light pinks! :o) I’ve always been a pink girl – and this time of year provides so many great reasons to pull the pink out!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  470. Nimue says:

    Yellow! Yellow! and more Yellow! After surviving all the bleak darkness of winter, I need to see the light. Yellow comes the closest to the warm light of the sun so I want and need YELLOW! Thanks for all the info you give us through your blog – Nimmy

  471. Ansa says:

    Hmmm I like white…but I also like the pinks and soft purples.
    Guess it depends on the mood and what kind of card Im creating.
    Thanks for the chance to win…love your blog!

  472. Kelly L says:

    What a terrific gift, Sharon!! This time of year, I seem to be using more soft subtles — lovin’ pinks and greens right now. 😀 Kelly

    Such a generous offering Sharon! I’d have to say Pretty in Pink – feels like Spring to me.

  477. bb says:

    lilac 🙂
    my fave color!

  478. Laura says:

    I grab all the Bold Brights these days. I usually use Lovely Lilac as purple is my favorite color, but any bright, cheery color helps my spring seem happier.

  479. Mary Anne says:

    I’m totally stuck on wild wasabi..I think I’m trying to get my fill before they no longer sell it!

  480. Jacque says:

    I am loving the colors in the afternoon tea DSP. Soft sky, groovy guava & wild wasabi. Thank you for the blog candy offer.

  481. Lately its been Groovy Guava and Chocolate Chip or Black….just a couple of weeks ago it was Purely Pomegranate and Soft Sky.

    I tend to use the InColors more often just before they
    retire so my customers will buy it up before they cannot
    get it anymore.

  482. Terri A. says:

    I tend to go with blues, greens. This year I’m grabbing lots of Soft Sky, and also Wild Wasabi. Certainly Celery is always good. Maybe some pinks/lavender if the mood strikes.

  483. Mary Ellen says:

    I love anything from Basic Grey! LOVE your work!!

  484. Donelle says:

    Love your blog! I reach for Blue Bayou and Soft Sky alot with browns – I love the combination of soft blues and browns. I have really been wanting the Define Your Life set – it’s one of my favorites everytime I see it on a card – thanks for the opportunity!
    Donelle U :o)

  485. Kim Pebley says:

    I seem to be grabbing sky blue most recently.. maybe for the spring flowers…Thanks for sharing I love your website!!! you are in my favs.
    Kim 🙂
