Stampin Up RGB Codes

Hi Everyone,
Now that things are settled down and summer is in full swing I can get back into the craftroom with a lighter heart.  I still am in the throws of the bedroom makeover but sometimes it is good to walk away for a moment to regroup thoughts.  I joined SU as a hobby demonstrator back in March.  I had no intent to sell, I just wanted to build my SU collection.  I love all that I have purchased and have a goal to stay with it for one year. Being that I don't sell the $$ commitment is big.  $300.00 a quarter, so I have sworn off the likes of AC Moore, Joann's & Michaels so that all my crafty $'s for this year will be spent with Stampin Up.  Now you all know I am more of a digital gal than a rubber stamper and my heart really belongs to Serif CraftArtist 2.  I love to make my own designer series papers and I like digi stamps more than rubber stamps. SU's My Digital Studio is fine but I love my CAP2 so I was happy that when I purchase digital files from SU they are all available for any other software package you use.  So if your a Coral fan or a PhotoShop fan etc... your good to go.  I needed a quick reference guide for the SU RGB Codes.  There were a lot available all over the internet but I wanted one that was on one sheet so that I could hang it by my computer for fast and easy reference. So I made one and thought others might have a use for it as well.  Here is a picture of the page:
  I have a .pdf file available here:
I left a blank block for next years In Colors because we all know how fast the year goes.  I reviewed and checked the page over and over so I am pretty sure I got it right.  The codes are direct from my MDS software.  If by chance someone catches a mistake please let me know so that I can fix it. Here is a quick idea for you.  I love to print tone on tone when I need a piece of coordinating paper.  So I will say create a page of small hearts in Real Red and then print them on Real Red cardstock.  You will be pleased with the tone on tone effect. Hope you enjoy this file and before I go I want to give a shout out to my precious Granddaughter Rory for a job well done as she leaves elementary school and moves up to middle school - Here's to you, Rueski Rue, I sure do LOVE YOU!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

A Sad Good Bye to My Friend Greystone

Hi Everyone,
There is sadness at our home today as we said good bye to our cat Greystone. The last few weeks have been hard but I could not let today end with out posting a picture of our Grey.  He has been with us for 17 years. We had adopted him from a rescue shelter. He brought more love, laughs and happiness to our family than words could say.  So here is to you my friend Greystone. I will miss you deeply and I will always hold you in my heart.

Thank you Grey for so many great memories!
