Retro-Fresh is going Blue/Berry!

Hi guys,  I hope that your week is going good so far.  As most of you know today is our November Retro-Fresh Challenge over on The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Challenge blog.  We are going Blue/Berry... What does that mean you ask?  Well it simple means that we are challenging you to make a card/project using Blue and Berry colors.  Think pinks, berry sorbet or melon mombo....  :O)  
When I got the calender for today's challenge I knew right away what paper pad I wanted to use.  I had just gotten my new 'be Merry' paper pad by MME, and I love, love the color combos and the fact that it is  non traditional Christmas colors.  I also needed to make a thank you card and I just new that Beanie Anya was the girl for me.  lol.. She is dressed just perfectly to go with the papers and yet not really be a Christmas card. I was thinking  more of a winter / I am happy the snow is not falling yet, kind of card.   I truly had so much fun with this card and my Anya stamp.  It just really gets you back into the mood to use those stamps that you love and had to have and kind of forget when the newest ones hit your mailbox.  lol...
Ok guys, be sure to check out Jessica's post for this months challenge over on the FF Challenge Blog.   She has a link that will give you a list of all the qualifying stamps for this one.  Thanks for joining us with all the fun.  We really are having a great time seeing everyone's cards and projects. 

Don't forget that the December Guest Designer contest ends 11/10, so make sure to get your entries into Jess before the big reveal of Phase 1 on our Facebook page on Friday, 11/11 !

What's more? Please join us at 7pm CST on Friday, November 11th in our SCS Forum for our First-EVER TGF "Customer Challenge and Chit-Chat" night! Our first night will be a Movie Theme event so pop some popcorn, grab your favorite candy, and join us for LIVE chatter, trivia, and a challenge with our first Customer Hostess to be revealed shortly! :O)
If  your not able to join us for the live chat no worries- we will be doing these at different times of day to include our overseas friends when we can.  Challenge will be open ALL weekend, too, so there will be time for EVERYONE to play!  We'll wrap up about 10pm CST or whenever we conk out-but for now, get ready to join us for a night at the movies!

Super cute Lisa, love this color combo and Beanie Anya is looking fab! I laughed and agree she is perfect for the winter/I am happy the snow is not falling yet card! :) Yesterday we actually hit 50 degrees and the night was not so cold, 22 degrees. My fingers are still crossed for no snow for another month at least!
I have a question for you...where did you get the MME Be Merry paper pad from? I've been trying to hunt that little pad down! Thanks so much and have a great day! :)
