Hi y'all!

Happy Humpday!  I'm SO glad today is Wednesday and we've only got two days left to go, before I get to sleep in.  If only we had more days in the weekend, I'd be a happy, happy girl. lol  I'm sad to say that we didn't make it to the College World Series after all, due to my having to work on Saturday.  Boo!  My daughter, being the amazing young woman she is, just blew it off and decided that she'd be happy if we went to see Man of Steel instead.  I was more than happy to oblige.  It's a GREAT movie, by the way, for any of you who are unsure of seeing it.  A lot better than I expected anyway.  The new Superman (Henry Cavill) is very nice to look at, especially when he's without a shirt. lol  Anyway, I made a card this morning.  Here's what I came up with.

I am trying to do the CAS thing again.  I wanted something simple, but not boring.  Thank goodness that my distress inks were able to help me accomplish my goal.  I embossed the back panel with the Tim Holtz rays embossing folder, and really like how it turned out.  I made this for a very dear friend, I met through blogging, who's always been there for me.  I do hope she enjoys it.

I've combined the following challenges in my card today:

Just Add Ink #169 - Inspiration Photo
Papertake Weekly - Hot, Hot, Hot (It is kind of a stretch, but I'm hoping Rays embossing folder fits this challenge)
Inky Chicks Challenge #6 - Love
SCRS Challenge #107 - Inspiration Photo
Without Words June Challenge - Hot Colors

I just found out this morning that I had received this:

For THIS card I made last week.  I'm totally stoked to be a Dynamic Darling! 

That's all for me today.  I'm headed to work, and then to my daughters softball game this evening.  Have a wonderful day!
