Hi everyone! :0) Another week - and this one is an exciting one for us! My Hunkadorus (who has been working sooooooo hard) is snatching us off for a week away - starting Wednesday! This isn't just any week away, but a week that includes hotels and restaurant food. (We really don't often do this). And a week is just about the right amount of time to start missing your own bed - and understanding all of those Christmas carols that sing sentimentally about home cooking ... heee!
I don't know if there will be internet access for us or not ... so I apologise in advance if I turn out to be a really bad blogging buddy this week.
So in amongst all of the clothing, ironing, packing, list making ... I have a card!
The Embellish Challenges are up and going again and I have really been wanting to play. So when this challenge was posted I fell in love with the colours ... and jumped in:
The idea is that the card should be masculine ... but I found these colours *so inspiring* for a non-traditional baby/very young boy, card! (But baby boys are still boys after all :0)
I'm still needing baby boy cards - so this worked well for me there too :0) Don't you love the red and baby blue together, with the hint of green, rather than the traditional yellow!? (Um - in case my camera is telling tall stories again ... that's Spring Moss cardstock in there :0)
I think the idea was to leave all the bling off. Oh well ;0)!
Thank you to the ladies at Embellish for the beautiful colours to work with!
Paper Crafts Connection is running a baby challenge this month too - so I've also popped this card into their Flickr group to play along there too!
Thank you for stopping in today!
