Color Chart Craziness!

I was wandering around over on SCS one day last week, looking for an excuse to do something other than laundry, when I stumbled upon this thread by elizgmom called SU Color Chart Craziness. Holy canolis! She compiled an *amazing* color cross-reference Excel spreadsheet from various sources on SCS that (and I quote) "contains the SU color name, the RBG code, the DMC floss #, the Prismacolor pencil #, the Copic Marker #, and the CTMH name if available." WOW!!! What a valuable resource!! Thanks elizgmom!! If you don't have Excel, post a comment here and I'll create a PDF to open in Adobe Reader. And if you're not familiar with Excel, don't let that keep you away; you'll find some printing tips on posts #6 and #21 in that thread.

I hope to have my card for Tanja's coffee & tea swap posted tonight. I have been preoccupied with our garage construction project that's in the works. Contractors, zoning requirements, financing, permits, plan revisions---cross your fingers, because everything gets submitted for approval later this week.

I have other several swaps' cards in stages of creation to be completed this week. I totally overcommitted myself for March, but I am seeing the light at the end of this tunnel. Although I think making all these cards one after another is helping my card-making mojo. In my opinion anyway.

Happy Creating!
