You have such an awesome blog as you can see, I visit your blog often. Congrat on your 150K.
To choose which new color is my favorite, it's hard because I like them all and I want them all. If I have to choose, I would say the Melon Mambo.
Thanks.

Congratulations to all the wonderful things to celebrate!!!

I love all the coming in-colors, but "Rich Razzleberry" is my favorite (from what I can see from the PC, so maybe it will remain the same or change after I get the real paper?!)

I am a numbers girl too. Melon Mambo is my favorite for the new In Colors although I must confess I have only seen them online so that might change once I see them in person. ;)

I love your blog, your style is very similar to mine and I get lots of inspiration from you.
Thanks!

Teri said...

I love the Razzleberry. Maybe it is the name that strikes me too but the color is rich and striking.

Thanks for all your great ideas.
