Hello and Happy Tuesday, Y’all!

We are just back from a mini vacation/road trip from Houston this past weekend. Last week, Tony asked me if me and the kids wanted to go with him to Houston while he was at a meeting.  Realizing that we have done a whole lot of nothing this summer, I figured it would be a great change of pace and jumped on the opportunity to make some memories and see some family and friends.  We had a great time, and I am exhausted…proof that it was fun, I suppose.  I originally planned to have another card for Time for a Card Tuesday, but my mojo and my tummy are running on empty so I pulled one from my “reject” pile.  I’m not saying that I don’t like this card, I’m saying that it didn’t get chosen to the magazine I submitted it to.  I’ll be chatting more about getting published, the new Reverse Confetti publication incentive, as well as sharing another “reject” tomorrow.

Here’s today’s “reject…”


This card is chock full of details!  The base layer is a piece of gray cardstock that I distressed the edges and sewed to card base.  The pink panel is stamped with the large dots from our new WHOLE LOTTA DOTS set in VersaMark watermark ink.  Atop of that pink layer, I placed 4 navy chevrons from the (also new!) ARROWS ‘N ELEMENTS set.  The sentiment, also from the Arrows ‘n Elements set, is stamped in triplicate, cut out and popped up with dimensional adhesive on a tag.  I **love** the gray, orange, pink and navy color palette, but I felt that it was needing a punch of another color.  I decided to bring in the green at the last minute after fidgeting with the panels for several minutes.  The green behind the sentiment is repeated in the circles that offset the silver sequins.  Why silver?…to play off the gray, while still being neutral.
