Rambling & a Challenge!

I know its been forever!  Goodness.  I guess you can say life has gotten in the way and a broken A/C unit!  So I have been without central air for about a good 8 days and being in central Texas this ain’t good!  Thank goodness its not in the 100’s and its been kinda cool  mid 90’s.  Inside the house temperature reads 87°F.  Thankfully my mom still had a window unit in her back sunroom that she doesn’t use and that is in our master bedroom. 

I had attempted to scrap but I started to sweat and I just gave up.  Who wants to sweat and scrap?  I know I don’t. So finally on day 8 I was fed up! I got some new scrappy goodies I wanted to use and decided to move some of my stuff to my bedroom temporarily. 

This is my Happiness!

A little corner nook I took over.  YES!  Ok so when I finally organized my stuff I was like, “WHAT DO I DO NOW?” lol

So of course what better way to get me out of my scrappy rut is to go to ANNABELLES BLOG and see what challenge they have going on!  She never fails me!  

So Annabelle's challenge is to SAY IT IN … YELLOW, LIME & CHOCOLATE!   Lovely colors!   I had just received my CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and I had to use it!  I rarely do shaped cards, I think this will be my 3rd?  Anyway LOVE that cartridge!!  I love that card feature! 

So here is my card!

001 (379x640)

I used SU soft suede for the base of the card, Kaisercraft “lush collection” as my pattern paper, and some yellowish bazzill  cardstock.  The wreath & banner I stamped with CTMH “Remarkable Wreath” stamp set! I must say, I LOVE IT! WOWO  amazing stamp set! LOVE LOVE.  You build your own wreath! Its great!  To top off the LIME in the challenge I used a ribbon to make a bow to top off my wreath!  I love it!  If I say so myself!!
