It's All My Husband's Fault!

So now I'm REALLY a liar... but it is dh's fault. I'm sitting here watching the Pistons with their oh-so-huge four point lead (can you hear my sarcasm?) and fiddling on my laptop (hey, a girl can multitask!) I checked out Kristina Werner's blog and find that she has indeed posted a color challenge this week, just on a different day than usual. I casually commented to my hubby that I wasn't going to do the challenge this week since we're busy with a house guest. He said something like "Really? I can't believe YOU aren't going to do the color challenge!" So of course, I had to get up and go stamp something! Here is her color inspiration picture:


Here is my card:


I am going through a jumbo eyelets phase. If you don't have a Crop-o-dile, you need one. These eyelets went in easy-breezy in about 2 seconds flat, and without a sound!!! Whoever invented that tool must have had a napping baby in the house, because it is such a gift!

Well, I guess I won't say that I won't post again until Monday, because at this point I might be lying for a third time! :-) I'll just "see" you when I "see" you.

Have a splendiferous weekend!

Totally cute! I gave up on this challenge, I just could wrap my head around "less is more" for this one. You did a nice job of figuring it out!
