happy popscicles and delicious colors

Hello, hello!
Today I'd like to show you two fun cards I created with this month's special releases at The {Stamps} of Life.  The alphabet set and the patterns4pops set were the mid-month releases, and (obviously) the patterns4pops pairs with the pops2eat set from the 1st of the month.  

The cardstock I used on these cards is from Bazzill Card Shoppe.
I LOVE the colors - their names are darling, and the colors are beautiful! Lots of bright cheeriness, just what I love! The card stock is a HEAVY 100# weight.  I highly recommend using a scoring tool to fold cards with this cardstock.  

I think Juicy Pear is one of my favorite colors in this pack. If you know me, you know I ALWAYS go for green and aqua. (Robin's Egg is a GORGEOUS aqua, just so you know!)

On this second card, I used Circus Peanuts and Sour Lemon.  (See, I told you the colors have great names!!!)  Below you can see a chart of all of them.  I'm happy to report that A Cherry On Top sells Bazzill's Card Shoppe in individual sheets, and I am not exactly sure who sells the multi-pack, but if you find it, let me know! :) Bazzill graciously provided me with a multi-pack to try out. . . .but guess what!? They provided me with an EXTRA multi-pack to share with one of YOU!!!! 
Please leave a comment and tell me which of these colors is your favorite, and I will draw a random winner on Saturday morning, May 19th.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! My poor little blog has been a bit lonely lately. . .you and I BOTH need to spend more time here! ;) Have a terrific end of the week. It's all downhill from here!

I really like all of these wonderful colors, and it is very hard to choose just one. I am thinking it is a tie for me between Banana Split and jawbreaker. Thanks for showing this chart!

Loving your bright and cheery cards especially the first one - that green and grey look fabulous together and the way you created the sentiment is really cool. :)

The names for the papers rock! I'm diggin' the Candy Necklace colour but I also just love the name Whirlypop (no matter what colour it is!) Thanks for the chance to win!
