understated....

Last night my mojo just decided to take a hike.  I fiddled with this card for two hours before giving up and heading to sleep.   This morning, those same elements came together in a card I've decided I can live with.



I used the Sketch Challenge SC344 from SCS as well as the color challenge CC334 - Basic White, Going Gray and Tempting Turquoise.  I didn't have anything to work with the bright turquoise but I did have a scrap from an old SU pack.  (can't remember the name).  I left off the sentiment because I thought this could work for anything from birthday to wedding/anniversary or sympathy.  Good one for the stash!

Just realized that you need to click the "x" to see this photo.


I also want to thank Dotty from Dotty A Cards and Things for the kind Versatile Blogger Award.



There are a few "rules" to accepting this award:
  • Link back to the person who sent it
  •  Share it with 7 recently discovered blogs
  • Tell 7 random things about yourself
Less is More - I know you all probably already know about this one but I just found it and love the challenges.  I need to work on my CAS skills.
Simon Says Stamp and Show - This challenge blog feeds my vintage funky spirit
Craft Us Crazy - an anything goes challenge site
Jen Shears Designs - Jen is a fellow May Arts team member and has a lovely CAS style & creative mind
Entering Kathyville - Kathy has a delightful style and rocks CAS, too.
Scrappin My Heart Out - The fabulous Debbie Carriere of Gallery Idol fame
Inking in Red - The awesome Anne who loves Red but dabbles in other color as well.

Ok...now for the hard part:

1.  I LOVE Oreos so I rarely buy them.  I would eat them all in one sitting.  Ditto for Cookies n Cream ice    cream
2.  I usually stamp late at night.  I feel "guilty" stamping during the day because I love it so much it feels more like play than work.
3.  I mill my own wheat for flour.
4.  I used to make my own clothes...not so much anymore.  Now my sewing is mainly in the craft category.
5.  I HATE ironing, but love my clothes and pillowcases ironed soooooo
6.  I like to weed.  It's a mindless activity that I find relaxing and it's instant gratification.
7.  I've been married 42 years...that's a lifetime!
 
That's it!  Have a lovely Thursday and try to stay cool.  We live in a tropical area so we're used to it but we feel for those of you who aren't.  Drink lots of water!



Pin It!
