Happy Stump Day, Hampers! This week is flyin' by, huh?
Today's card project was created for the Clean & Simple "Fall to Layout" sketch challenge, FTL76. For a look-see at the clean and simple sketch I followed, clicky HERE.
For my color palette, I used the color challenge from the Play Date Cafe Challenge, PDCC14. For all the colorful challenge deets, clicky HERE.
Today's card qualifies for the Creative Belli Challenge #84, to use ribbon on your project. Clicky HERE to check out all the challenging deets. And, the card also qualifies for the Pile It On Challenge, to use non-winter colors. Clicky HERE to check out the Pile It On Challenge blog. Finally, I've entered the card in the Dutch Dare Card Challenge, DDCC#70, "Summer in Winter." Clicky HERE to visit the Dutch Dare Card Challenge blog.
I used a plethora of paper scraps for this card: the orange bit of paper is from Stampin' Up, the lilac and rosy red scraps are from Daisy D's, and the green is from an unknown digital file.
My font-a-licious sentiment is from the new Stampin' Up set, Well Scripted, available in the Occasions Mini Catalog. This set is getting a real workout this month ... and I haven't even inked up the other five stamps! I stamped the image in fabulous-fun-flirty "Melon Mambo" dye ink ... my new favorite ink color.
For the skinny on all the other product I used to create this card, check out the supply list, below.
Soooooooo, yesterday the DH and Sheila's DH, Ken, went on a fishing trip with Sheila's across-the-canal neighbor, Bill. Since I needed to hang-out with Sheila, I drove the DH and all his fishing gear over to Sheila's.
When Bill arrived, boat in tow, to pick up the guys and their mountain of fishing crap, I couldn't help but notice the name of the boat: "Innuendo." I thought that was pretty cool ...
After the guys left, and failing to divine some deep, hidden meaning, I asked Sheila if she knew how Bill had come up with that name.
"'Innuendo?' Oh," she answered, "his wife works for a proctologist."
Thanks so much for spending part of your busy day with me!
