"STAY" --NAC #92 and TSSC317

June 3, 2014

It has been crazy at my house today.  There are a least 10 men working on painting our trim and prepping our house to be stained.  We have plastic on all the windows, so I feel like I am living in a bubble.  I will be so happy when it is done. 

On a happy note, my Sweetie sent me a beautiful bouquet of flowers today for my birthday tomorrow.  They are beautiful!  I love tulips, peonies and hydrangeas!  They are absolutely gorgeous!  I guess getting older, isn't soooooo bad, after all!

Today, my card is for the Nacho Average Color Challenge and The TechnoStamper Sketch Challenge.  Check out these challenge blogs for some beautiful examples!  Love the inspiration I get from all these wonderful artist!

I love Island Indigo and Crushed Curry!  I have never paired them with Perfect Plum, and it was a challenge to get these colors to work together, but with this great sketch, it all came together.  I pulled out an old stamp set, "Tea Shoppe" and inked up my favorite sentiment from that set.  I always love to have a cup of coffee or tea with a friend and catch up.  I hope you will enjoy my card!
