Don't Believe Everything You Read ...

Pin It


Happy (?) Monday, Stampers! Hope your weekend was long and lovely!

Today's super-simple card project was created for The Play Date Cafe's weekly color challenge, PDCC19. This week, the color challenge calls for Deep Yellow, Pale Yellow, and White. For all the challenging deets, including a look at the tangy inspiration photo, clicky HERE.

Here's a lookie at my v-e-r-y yellow card:

I'm pretty unhappy with this photo, but I've been taking pix of this card for hours and I'm officially saying "uncle." And now I've run outta time ... and daylight. And there will be no photographing anything today because yet again, I'm starting Jury Duty at 8:00 a.m. this morning. I get summoned once a year ... regular as Christmas! Is it just me or does this happen to anyone else?!?

And I promise to do my very best to get to all of your blogs this week, but it may be a bit difficult what with the whole American-Civic-Duty thing going on this week. But if you don't see me posting comments on your blogs, this would be why. I promise to swing by your blogs just as soon as possible to 'oooh' and 'ahhhh' over all of your fabulous projects!

I used two very retired Stampin' Up sets to create this card: the duck is from 1999's "Hoppy Easter" stamp set, and the l'il tag is from 2006's "Terrific Tags" stamp set. For the rest of the amazing product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Soooooooooo, this weekend Sheila and I and our respective DHs got together to go out for dinner. We settled on Mexican and decided to try the 'hot' new Mexican restaurant in downtown West Palm.

As we waited to be seated, Sheila jabbed me with her elbow and directed my attention to a sign posted on the wall. It read, "It's a Fact: Tacos is Brain Food."

So much for "facts" ...

Thanks so much for spending part of your busy Monday with me ... have a great day!

~Hugs,

Yikes and double yikes! Jury duty my husband gets summoned like you. Me - I tend to act like the sign at the Mexican restaurant. I must say that when I hear a teacher speak that way, I refuse to let my children be in his/her class. You know, if they can't speak properly, then how can they possibly be a good teacher!! Thanks for playing along with Other Lovelies thoughtful Thursdays challenge. All that yellow makes me feel like the sun is shining!

Leah the Orange said...

hi Deb - LOVE the duckie and the gorgeous bright colours on this card! TOO CUTE!

our challenge does require, in addition to the colour yellow, either a sun, a sunflower, or the word "sun" in your project, so hopefully you'll still have time to do this before the challenge closes tonight at midnight EST!

so glad you joined us at Design Dollies! :)

Julia Aston said...

Love your bright baby card Deb! the yellow is so pretty!

In MA we can only get called once every 3 years and for a while I was called every 3 years - but I seem to have fallen off the schedule lately! (SSSHHHHH!) and we get called just for one day unless we get assigned to a jury.
