The color challenge on Tuesdays is always posted later than I would like. So, I went looking in the gallery at SCS and found the challenge posted under the keywords, (CC210)CC for Color Challenge and 210 for the week. Last week was CC209, so I know this week will be CC210. I saw the colors and made my card and was all happy. Until I realized the date of the possting was wrong and someone had used the same keywords for a different challenge in January So instead of being Baja Blue, Not Quite navy and Kraft, I needed to use Red Riding Hood, Summer Sun, Kraft, and the optional color of black. Darn!
So I ended up making two cards and only posting one. It works out well as I have a father and father-in-law. Generally I don't like buttons on my creations and do not EVER use them. But they seemed fitting for a masculine card where girly frills and flowers won't work. Also, I absolutely hate buttons that are not tied or sewn. Due to a lack of available string in my house I just stuck them on and went with it. Do I love it? No. Do I care? Not really. Art does not have to be perfect, just handmade.
I used the set Bowling Hanna by Hanna Stamps for my cards.
Today is a beautiful day and I look forward to picking up Noah after school and drinking milkshakes from Steak and Shake on the way home. They have half price shakes from 2-4 and they are calling my name today!
