Thinking of you…

So were you wondering about a post for today????

I really wasn’t sure if I was going to get something done to share today after waking up to a ‘little’ mishap. Someone (I won’t name names but it wasn’t one of the girls in the house) left the freezer open last night after getting an ice block out and seeing how the meat (mainly chicken) had started to defrost, I didn’t want to toss it all so I’ve been cooking a good part of the day along with some shopping to replace the things that did have to be tossed. I’m just thankful I didn’t go and do my bulk meat purchase on Wednesday like I’d originally planned. I guess we have the weather to thank for that as I just didn’t want to leave the house and air conditioning. On the plus side, I now have a couple of casseroles in the freezer for when it cools down a little.

I’ve managed to create one card to share with you tonight. This one is for the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge  188.

This it the sketch provided.

I wasn’t sure what stamp set to use for this sketch but I wanted it to be one I hadn’t used, in keeping with my goal.

I decided to use the Growing Green stamp set along with the Woodland Walk DSP.

I’ve gone with a Monochromatic theme for this one.

I’m not sure if I like this one at all though. It has parts that I like but others I don’t.

Maybe if I had of made the card a little larger so there was more Crumb Cake showing on the bottom. I wish we had Chocolate Chip brads rather than the Crumb Cake ones I’ve used too but they looked better than the Very Vanilla.

Maybe it’s just the colours I’m not liking.

I don’t know.  Maybe I’ll have another play with a different stamp set and some other colours.

Till next time….

    Another lovely card Nikki – but agree the chocolate chip brads would just set it off. Maybe I should take a leaf out of your book and start using some of the “things” that haven’t been used in a while!!

    Great job! I love how you used the punched shape for the sentiment! Pretty pretty!
