AND MAYBE SOME ICE CREAM TOO!!


The SUO challenge blog today is DOTS.  I love polka dots, of any kind, so I had fun punching out these dots and adhering them to my background.  When I finished this card though, I was like, "meh" - I just don't feel like this kind of card cuts it with me.  It's okay, but I wasn't excited to upload tonite or anything.  The colors are from the SCS color challenge this week and they are difficult colors for me.  Oh well, it was fun to make.  I like this saying, especially the part about eating some ice cream too.  I live on a diet most of the time.  But I just celebrated a birthday, and I picked up two kinds of ice cream…..I texted my daughter to ask what kind her family likes and when she didn't see the text right away I just chose.  Black Raspberry Chocolate chip and Sea salt Caramel.  Oh man, I forgot how GOOD ice cream IS.  So worth the cheat.  In fact, even typing this made me want some more, so my sweet husband is getting me some now.  Gotta live a little.  I'll go back on it tomorrow, and eventually that darn stuff will be gone and I can get serious again.  Ice cream convinces me God loves me.  :) Gotta close and eat some now.  Until next time……Karen

Oh Karen! The colors may be difficult for you but I'd have never guessed! It's beautiful!

Just traced my way to your blog after reading your fabulous story in the SU Demo Connections page. Too funny. Yep, icecream is great and the names alone just make me want to go search but we don't have names quite like that here. Hope it was enjoyable! Love the card - you are too self critical of course, but it really is a beauty and I love the texture you have built in.

Karen, I think your card is delightful! Fun, bright colors, happy thoughts - everything a birthday card is supposed to be!! a party in an envelope! The fact that you can make a card like THAT when it is not your favorite style speaks directly to your card making talent. Don't be so hard on yourself. You.Did.Good!
