Kristina's Color Inspiration #15


Happy Friday! Is everyone excited the weekend is near?! I've been running some errands, going to get my haircut at 3:45, still need to do laundry and pack...but most importantly, of course, getting all the material ready to cover my blog posts for the next nine days while I'm gone! lol! Thank goodness my parents have a computer and internet access now, schwooo! It's dial-up, but I'll take it...there were some *dark* days there before they got a computer! The horror!

I whipped this card up a few minutes ago for Kristina's Color Inspiration #15 Challenge. The colors to use were Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Really Rust, Certainly Celery, and Whisper White. Let me tell you, I'm not sure *when* I used Really Rust last. I think it was when I made Halloween cards with Autumn Apparitions. I really used too much Certainly Celery here...the ribbon would be better with Chocolate Chip, but I'm out! (I'm running out of several things...I had to pillage an old card last night to remove a Build-a-Brad for a new card! Felt so guilty!)


Thanks so much for stopping by and the super kind comments you've been leaving lately! You're my summer company, because I don't get out of the house much!

Have you stamped something today?

Angie, you silly girl! You can never have too much celery. It's healthy and makes your card pretty. I really like the card!
If we don't converse again, have a safe and stress free trip!
