Kristina's Color Inspiration #32: Always

Happy Tuesday! It's so great to be on Thanksgiving vacation already! Yesterday I had to finish up reading Breaking Dawn, the 4th book in the Twilight series (I did NOT like it although it got a little better half way through) then I went to see the Twilight movie with some non-Twilight reader friends. The movie was TERRIBLE, in my humble opinion, bad acting, bad directing, etc. and now these friends will never understand how good the book is, sigh. Oh well! But if you liked the movie, I'm happy for you, I wish I would have!

Anyway, finally cleaned up the stamp room a little bit today and made this card for Kristina's Color Inspiration #32. Again, I would never have put these colors together, but I loved them (I always love the more monochromatic look): Red Riding Hood, Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White. This turned out a little plainer than I had hoped for, I think I should have stamped the bird on Red Riding Hood designer series paper instead of solid cardstock maybe? The bird is from the Always set, you might remember when I made him a solid color back from this post.

Well, I just worked out (I know, a miracle! Trying to make the most of this vacation and start back on some good habits), and now I better clean up and run a couple of errands before some stamp club girls come over tonight. Hope you're all having a great week and having fun getting ready for Thanksgiving. Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
