Love and Laughter


Not a catchy title today. Been one of those off kinda days. Trey was a touch difficult this morning. Daddy spent a good amount of the morning fussing at him. So we headed on a shopping trip, where he picked his lunch and than refused to eat it, nothing more fun than making a seven year old eat! Needless to say, we didn't buy anything, and went home early.
Than started to stamp to kinda wind down some, and the dog pooped on the carpet, again! Twice in the last two days. Sigh! Waiting for him to finally get it! If it's not number two, it's number one, and we have been accident free on that for a few days. How do you get dogs to tell you they have to go?! This seems to be our lacking in the training dept. I have to say, stamping relaxes me, and it's not very relaxing when you have to stop and steam clean the carpet! Well, enough grumbling!
I pulled off a few challenges on this card today. I'm still wanting to do my normal Sunday Challenges. Maybe later tonight I can sit down and do those.
This is the Cupcake Craft Challenge. It had a layout and a color combo. Missed the detail on the combo on that until after I was done. Luckily, my other challenge was about the same colors! I used my scorpal to create lines instead of the ribbons on my card. Gotta brag, they picked me last week as one of their top fives! It's also Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge, which was score it. I scored a few lines on two sections of my card. I think that's a very pretty effect on a card. For CCEE Stampers, use trees and flowers. Pink Elephant had a color combo challenge. Pile it on was to use no pattern paper.
I did the rock and roll technique on this card. I also dabbed Versamark Dazzling around the edges, which gives it a shimmery effect, but it's not showing up in the photo. I stamped off Script background stamp from TAC in Taken with Teal on the tree image, but it's also a soft effect on the card. Other supplies: SU Craft, choco chip, taken with teal cardstock, taken with teal, and choco chip ink, scorpal, TAC Love and Laughter set, script stamp, nesties, primas.
