friendship-in-vogue.jpg  Good morning, ya’ll…

I was a little freaked by this morning’s Color Challenge.  Individually, I love these colors, but to put them together….*scary*.   I also threw down a little challenge to myself… 1) no swiss dots, 2) no scallops, 3) use older neglected sets.

In retrospect, I wish I had used more of the so saffron, but in all, I’m pleased with the result. 

Well, we finally got notice that our Tax Stimulus Check is to arrive soon!  TG!!  I’m running low on paper….eek!  I’m also going to buy the Wii Fit.   Oh, that’s not for the boys, it’s for moi!  Since we have started planning our cruise, I had better drop some weight so I can at least wear a bathing suit without scaring little children..lol.

Here’s my deets:

Stamps: Vases in Vogue; Circle of Friendship

Colors: Real Red, Regal Rose, So Saffron, GP White

Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Copics

Accessories: brads, ribbon, dimensionals, scissors, cuttlebug ef, oval punches, ribbon punch, circle punches, designer label punch

TFL!~ and have a blessed day!

    What a great card Holly! I LOVE how you did the ribbon — something I shall have to copy, I’m afraid. :)

    This card is great – no need for more saffron. Love your ribbon treatment on the side of the image – another nice tip to tuck away :) Beautifully balanced as always. Great job!

    I’m jealous of the Wii. We hope to be able to get it for the kids (big and small alike :) ) for Christmas this year. I’ve seen the Wii Fit commercials on TV and it looks wonderful. You go girl!! Based on the bathing suit comment I’m assuming you are going South versus Alaska….sniff sniff – LOL :) Have a great day.

    Love your card Holly! And how funny about no swiss dots and scallops – I made a card this afternoon and wondered to myself if I’m capable of making a card without polka dots or scallops anymore… the answer appears to be a resounding NO! LOL!
