I LIKE YOU!

The color challenge this week is so interesting, Pool Party, Cajun Craze, Blushing Bride and dessert, any green.  I chose my favorite go to for forever, Old Olive. :) I just got so excited about these colors I forgot to peek and see what the SUO challenge was this week.  Let me explain.  We are in the process of meeting a deadline getting our beloved house ready to put on the market so we can buy a place that my mom can share with us.  So many changes…..but the thing right now is that we literally hit the ground running every single weekend, and we honestly don't stop until the weekend is up, then we cross some more things off our list, go back to work and wait for the next weekend.  In the midst of this, my step mom also moved to an apartment 8 min from us this past weekend and we spent some time helping her settle in as well.  So I carved out a bit of time when we got to a point in cleaning our garage where my husband really needed to be the one to move forward.  Kind of like him trying to clean my stamp room - he isn't sure where anything goes at some point. :) So I snuck up to the stamp room to make this card and after I got finished I reallllly liked it but then I thought, Oh man, I forgot to check the blog challenge, I could have combined….and then I started thinking oh, man, I have to make another card!! ( how I hate stamp time being rationed…but this too shall pass and my stamp time will be restored)ANYHOW to make a short story long…..when I went and checked the SUO challenge, it was to use embellishments from Page 208 and 209 in the catalog, BINGO!!  Pearls!! God cares about the little stuff……all's well that ends well, and I had time to do a few more things on our list…..such as some long over due weeding and gardening……did I ever tell you how much I hate gardening?  I love the flowers, but I HATE the work…..bugs, bugs and more bugs, oh, and dirt.  That's another whole blog entry…..until next time, Happy Stamping!! Karen

Love your card! It is so beautiful..wish I could color like that. Ah well, I cannot. Yes, God really does care about the little things such as pearls doesn't He? One of my kitties is in heat right now so I prayed this afternoon for her to have some comfort. She seemed to have a decent afternoon. Yay God! Just had to post after reading about the "little things". Quite often you make me laugh so thank you for that. It's a bit of a bright spot for me.

A gorgeous card, Karen! I pray that you will be able to sell your house in a timely fashion and find something else suitable that you will also love. Change is hard!
