Road Trip!

Pin It

Happy Monday, Stampers ... hope your weekend was love-ly!

Today's card project was created for the current Play Date Cafe, PDCC16. The challenge called for a color combination I found really difficult to put together ... and I'm sure it shows:

To check out all the colorful challenge deets, or to play along, clicky HERE. For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo.

For a list of all the challenges I've entered today, check out the list below. And for all the uber-exciting product info, check out the supply list, below ... but above the Challenge list.

Soooooooo, this weekend the DH and I and Sheila and her DH decided to drive up to the Orlando area for the day.

When they picked us up at the house, I asked Ken if he had everything we'd need for the trip.

"I'm all set, Deb. I have a map, a GPS, and a GPS override."

"What's a 'GPS override?'" I asked.


Thanks so much for stopping by ... have a great day!

Not sure I could handle these colors, Deb, but it seems no combination is too much for your capable mind. Great job!
