Mercy! It's a Challenge Combo!!!


The sniffles are about done with, except that I've got that, 'I know I'm sick 'cause of the kind of headache I have,' headache. *blech* However, the flip side is that I can stamp without a waterfall, so it's all okay because that's what Advil's for!

Since Advil is such a marvelous thing, I played along with the cool colour challenge Betty has today on SCS; so saffron, bermuda bay and going gray. Okay, I admit I struggled with the bbay portion of today's challenge! I'm really not a brights kinda girl. However, I'm coming to realize with these challenges that I don't have to feature the colour I'm struggling with because a teeny tiny bit will do. I used Mercy's Tuesday sketch for my card.

I still adore Everafter paper by Cosmo Cricket, and it's been ages since this line was released, and, to be honest, ages since I worked with it last. It is perfect paper for this challenge!!! OH YEAH, BABY!!!! I just love it when a card comes together easily like this one did for me.

My kids are on Spring Break, and it's felt like Saturday everyday. I hope your week is like a bunch of carefree Saturdays in a row, too!

paper; everafter (cosmo cricket), coconut swirl, elephant (bazzill)
