Happy Stump Day, Hampers!
Today's v-e-r-y bright card project was created for the Pals Paper Arts color challenge, PPA28, to use my-new-favorite color combination, Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, and Basic Black ... or a reasonable facsimile thereof.
As luck would have it, though, this card got lost under a
mountain pile of paper scraps and stamp sets strewn about on my desk ... so I'm actually too late to play in this challenge. Hah!
It's not too late, however, for the Crafty Cardmaker's challenge to use digital files in your card. For all the digi-deets, or to play along, clicky HERE. I've also entered my card in the Crafty Angels challenge, to use a favorite color combination. For all the colorful challenge deets, clicky HERE.
The card also qualifies for Danni's "Flutter By Wednesday" challenge to use a butterfly, fairy, or an angel on your project. For all the fluttery deets, clicky HERE. I've also entered this card in the Incy Wincy color challenge, to use pink and black in your project. For all the incy-wincy deets, clicky HERE. AND, the Pollycraft Monday Challenge, to use 'things with wings.' For all the winged deets, clicky HERE.
All of the patterned paper on this card was created using digital files and my font-a-licious stamp set is from SU's new "Whimsical Words" set, a Sale-a-bration item, available for free with any $50.00 purchase from Stampin' Up. Is there anything better than free stampin' products?!? I think not ...
For all of the colorful digital product info, check out the supply list, below.
Soooooooooo, last night I was hangin' out with Sheila debating the question: who's fatter than whom?
"The heck with this," Sheila said, "follow me."
And off we go to her bathroom to weigh ourselves ... in front of each other for authenticity.
"After you." I gallantly offered.
So, Sheila climbs on the scale. But when I tell her what it reads, she refuses to believe me.
"Go get my glasses, I refuse to confirm that number without 'em."
When I return, she plops the glasses on her face and bends down to take a look.
"Well, I'll be damned! These glasses weigh 20 pounds!"
Now, I'm off to a meeting run by the Florida Department of Health to find out why 98 men, women, and children in my neighborhood have brain tumors. And more importantly, what they plan to DO about it!
Thanks for stopping by today ... have a good one!
