Happy Birthday for Color Throwdown 233 and Simon Says Stamp

Sunday, March 17, 2013

I haven't had a chance to do a whole lot of crafting this so far this weekend.  However, I did find time this morning to finish a card that I started Friday night.  Yay for me!

The colors are from Color Throwdown and the layout is from Simon Says Stamp.  Lately it seems like I've been seeing a lot of cards made for Simon Says Stamp challenges so I finally took some time to check it out.  This week they've got a couple of sketches to choose from and I picked this one because that half circle caught my eye.

Oh, shoot I've just realized that I've put the sentiment in the wrong place :(  Figures my first time participating in their challenge and I go and do it WRONG!!!  I think I'll link it up anyway, with apologies to the DT and especially to Dawny who took the time to design this great sketch.  I promise to do better next time!

Last night I had the privilege of attending the production of Les Miserable at my old high school.  My nephew was in it and, although I'm probably biased, I've got to say that it was fantastic.  The set was out of this world and the performances were nothing short of amazing.  The young men and women who had the lead roles had beautiful voices and I know that several of them have professional acting and singing aspirations.  If last night was any indication I can't imagine that won't realize their dreams some day!

Thanks for stopping by!

LOVE the burlap for the half circle! Looks fabulous. Don't worry about the sentiment, looks great where it is and I'm sure they will let it slide :) Love watching a good HS production of a play!! Cheers to them for putting on a good performance.
