Card of the Day

I know, this card is not a stunner but it was all I could manage today. Today is Tuesday which means the challenge of the day is a color challenge. The assigned colors: More Mustard, Rose Red and Old Olive. I always find the color challenge to be the most difficult challenge of the week. It forces me to use colors I normally would not put together. I thought Hanna's Moose would be perfect in his battle colors for the Old Olive portion of the challenge.
I used hanna Stamps' Backyard Dwellers (on the ground by Riley's feet), her sentiment set and GI Jon. The Rose Red stamp set is Seeing Spots from Stamping Up and the paper is from DCWV.
We had a nice time in French Lick this weekend and we went back to Abraham Lincoln's boyhood home in kentucky so the boys could get their Junior Ranger badges from the US Parks Service. It is a programmed that is offered at all the Nationa Parks. Kids get a workbook and have to explore the site and answer the questions then meet with a Ranger. The kids are rewarded with a pastic badge and a form. My kids only discovered the program recently and only havetwo badges. If it were up to them, we'd live in an RV, homeschool them, and travel from park to park collecting badges. It sounds good to me, too, but we'd have to bring along a tutor as I would hate to miss all that knitting time on the road.
