Hello, hello!

Yesterday was a hot and humid day here, so I stayed indoors, and made stuff. :-)  The girls went to the pool for the last time this year, and came back looking like lobsters. lol  I'm glad my daughters sunburn will turn into a nice tan, but feel bad for her BFF, who will stay bright red and then just peel.  Poor girl.

Here is the next card I would like to share with you.

When I saw the colors for the newest Color Throwdown challenge, I knew immediately that I wanted to play along.  Then the new Freshly Made Sketch was posted, and I decided I wanted to make another non-traditional Christmas card.  Love it!

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

The Cutting Edge #8: DT Inspiration (I flipped the sketch to accommodate the card posted)
Color Throwdown #306: Night of Navy, Pale Plum & Pear Pizzazz
Freshly Made Sketches #150: Sketch
Papertake Weekly: To Die For

I'm off to fix a few meals for this week, and then read up on my new toy, a Keurig for my office.  I'm excited that I won't have to walk across the parking lot for coffee anymore.  It's already annoying to do that when I have to use the restroom. lol

I hope ya'll have a great day!
