I hadn’t made a card since Sunday and I think it was starting to bug me!  cardSep3of2009bUnfortunately, this card didn’t turn out at all as I had hoped but I decided to post it here anyway so there would at least be something to look at over the long Labor Day weekend!  However, being that it is a long weekend, maybe I will have time to upload another card before Tuesday rolls around if I get time to make a few cards like I plan to – we’ll see! 🙂

I originally intended to use a color combination of Certainly Celery, Not Quite Navy, and Chocolate Chip on this card.  However, I was bound and cardSep3of2009cdetermined to use these two stamp sets and this week’s Sketch Challenge (SC244) at SplitCoastStampers, and I just couldn’t get the Certainly Celery to fit in anywhere that I actually liked!

I did a lot of rearranging and swapping while putting this card together, but hopefully the end result isn’t too much of a “hot mess!”  haha!

Thanks for stopping by and please take a moment to leave me a comment so I know you were here – I treasure each and every one!

Have a safe, happy, and blissfully wonderful Labor Day!

Blessings to you and yours,
