Curtain Call 49 and FTL109

Sunday, September 26, 2010

I had a very busy day today.  I volunteer for the Bridgewater Community Emergency Response Team and our team was activated Friday night to help out with traffic control Sundy at a local high school where President Bill Clinton was going to speak.  I spent the better part of Sunday hanging around a parking lot telling people where to park.  There was no place to sit and by the end of the day, my back was killing me.  I was very glad to get home where I could relax and I'm especially glad that I still had the energy to get into my stamp room.

Sunday is always a fun card-making card day for me.  There are so many weekend challenges to choose from and I look forward to picking out the ones that catch my eye.  Today it was the Curtain Call 49 color challenge and the FTL109 sketch challenge.

I love these colors together.  They are so dramatic.  I used similar colors on a card recently and I actually found myself practically recreating the same card before I stopped myself.  So I used different stamps and hopefully created something new.

As you can see I moved the sentiment down to better accomodate the stamp and I added some brads for a little interest, but I think I remained pretty true to the sketch.

Oh, in case you thought I was kidding about Bill Clinton, here's a picture of him leaving the event today.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!
