Monday



Well, hello everyone! Can I just say that even though I love my job today was absolutely nuts! I was tired from Atlanta and so all day I was just off.  I'm so glad it's over. I need to just get in the bed now and relax cause if I have to make one more decision, my head may explode. My Boss just kept making fun of me..lol..but I guess he felt sorry for me cause he took me to Puffy Muffin for cookies! Yum! They have the best, freshest cookies. I had whole English Toffee and Butter Pecan cookies and then we split a Snickerdoodle and an Oatmeal Raisin. He had a whole Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut and Chocolate Chunk.  Yes, I know...we're not right. Those cookies are SO not on my diet. :o( I'm going back to PM another day this week with my friend, Mayra, for some yummy potato soup! I can NOT wait...if you're ever in Nashville (well Brentwood which is just a few miles south of Nashville on 65), you MUST stop and eat.

I made this card for my husband. I think I may give it to him on Father's Day, but maybe tomorrow..lol..I want him to have it soon! :o) I used the sketch from this week's Mojo Monday challenge. This sketch was hard for me for some reason..and the card isn't EXACTLY how I wanted it to be, but I like it well enough. This was also my first time inking up my Chair-rished set. As much as I love it, I just can't seem to use it in a way that really makes me happy. Do you guys have those kinds of sets? You love them, but whenever YOU try to use them it's just a disaster. I hate that! I'm going to try and use it more and maybe get more comfortable with it.

Ok, well that's enough for tonight. I think tomorrow I may do Kristina Werner's color challenge! Have a great night...

I love the color combination you used for this card. I think you did a great job. Never would know it was your first time with this set. It is really nice. Your husband will love it.

First off, your "brownkowness" cracks me up. Nothing beats the idea of "brownkowments"...I think you just made my day. Beyond that though, I love your card! I'm glad its thumbnail brought me here.

Such a great card Keva! I love the pieced chairs and the angle is perfect. The BG paper matches so well and I would not be able to wait to give it to him. Fantastic job here.
