I know what you're thinking...

Yeah, I know what you're thinking "Hey..here she is using those numbers die again and she does NOT know anyone turning 5!". Yeah, I know that's what y'all are thinking and guess what...you're right! Ha! This time, though, there is a method to my madness. 


Last night, I went to see Maroon 5 and Train in concert. Oh goodness...it was a FABULOUS show. Loved every bit of it, though the fact that Adam Levine did NOT remove his shirt was a bit of a bummer...lol. 


So, back to my thought process...I got home late last night and the only thing I could think of was my new train set and die from Papertrey (courtesy of two awesome PTI forum friends who took pity on me when I couldn't go to Stamp-A-Faire last month and wanted to buy me something) and also my numbers die..specifically the number 5. I SO wanted to make a card that incorporated those two things: Trains and 5's...get it? Train and Maroon 5..get it? Heehee...i'm so silly. :)


Anywho, so I decided to use this week's Colour Q colors, seen here:



And here is my card:




I just love that set. It's so so cute! 


Well, that's it for me. I DO want to leave you with a couple of videos in case you're in need of a Maroon 5 or Train fix. :)


Thanks for stopping by!


A little "Sunday Morning" by Maroon 5 (my all time favorite)






And a little "Save Me, San Francisco" by Train:







Thanks for stopping by!!

Train AND Adam Levine!? Woot for you, girl!! My friends always teased me that I have a love for scrawny men because I could eat Adam Levine (or Justin Timberlake) with a spoon! Ha! Ohh, I almost forgot, I came here for the card... super cute! Who needs to know a 5 year old to enjoy your goodies?! Secret: I rarely mail my cards but as long as I enjoy making them I think it's all good.

Such an adorable card, Keva! These are my favorite male colors, too :)

On the Adam Levine thing.... well, that's just not right. Doesn't he know we like him shirtless? YUMMO!

Ok, now I feel like a creeper. I think I'm almost old enough to be his mom. LOL
