Dynamic Duos and my Turtle card
We survived Monday! My husband is on vacation this week and is just staying home and getting some odd jobs done. I was able to take my oldest son Caleb out on a date today! It was super fun to be out with him. He and I don't get much alone time together since we usually have his little brother with us! He sure is a sweetheart!
I tackled the Dynamic Duos challenge this week! I must say I do enjoy challenges! I may need a calendar just to keep track of them all though!!! I don't think there are enough days in the week to do them all!
The challenge this week was to create a card using the Bold and Sassy colours the Design Team chose - Real Red and Island Indigo! I would never have put those two colours together but they did and I think they look just fine together!
Cardstock: Whisper White, Island Indigo, Real Red
DSP: Summer Smooches
Stamps: Betsy's Blossoms, My Friend
Ink: Basic Black, Real Red, Island Indigo
Other: Basic Rhinestones
Okay...so yesterday was one of my best friend's birthday...her and I have known each other since Grade 6. She works with endangered species and LOVES turtles so I decided I would try and tackle the CAS-ual Fridays challenge (using glitter and bling) to make a card for her. I attempted to use the Pond Life stamp set to create a cute turtle and dragonfly but in the end I swear it looks like my son made it! Now, he loves his Auntie and probably would be proud to say he made it...BUT I may need to start over!
Anyhow, I thought I'd post it to say that all card makers have cards that don't turn out exactly as they had planned...but I'm sure my dear friend will know I love her and tried hard to make her a turtle card!!!
