Good Tuesday morning! Yes, I said Tuesday and you know what that means. Time for another Treasure Hunt Tuesday at Rubbernecker and another Rubbernecker Blogger Challenge. If you are new to the Treasure Hunt, you can find the first clue and all the deets and info on the Rubbernecker Home page. This week both Jeanne and Leigh are offering up some Rubbernecker blog candy. You’ll want to stop by for a visit for a chance to win a $10 Rubbernecker Bucks Gift Certificate!

Jeanne has an interesting Rubbernecker Blogger Challenge today. She wants us to use ribbon in non-traditional ways. I haven’t done mine yet, but will be back once I see what the SCS Color Challenge is. In the meantime, make sure you visit Jeanne’s blog, Inky Paws, for the challenge details. To see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this challenge, please stop by the blogs of Broni, Tami, Candy, Kittie, Shelly and Linda.

I thought I would make it into the stamp room yesterday, but errands and Daughter #2, kept me busy. I’ll be back a little later with some stamping!

Okay, so I’m back! If anything could go wrong today, it would go wrong here! You know those days when you think you are going to have time for yourself, and then the dam breaks. Well, it’s one of those days around here. I won’t bore you with the details, let’s just say that this card has been done for a few hours and I wasn’t able to get it uploaded. Oh the heck with it. Mallory had to work today, leaving me with a list of phone calls that she should have made yesterday. Of course, that didn’t happen (which I’m sure wasn’t forgetfulness) and mom needed to make for her today – in her best whiney voice “I just don’t have time, I have to work.” Yeah right! Then 15 minutes after she left, my phone rings. “Mom I forgot to bring something with me . . . can you please bring it down to the pool.” Thinking that it would be a good idea to take the pups along with me, I load them in the car and off we go. I wasn’t half way there when Sydney decided to become a Nervous Nellie, climbed in my lap and then tried to go under the driver’s seat. That prompted a stop to toss both of them into the backseat, Sydney shaking like crazy. Wonder if she realized she has a vet appointment later this afternoon. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

Well anyway, I’m home now for a bit, and am going to try to get this done. Oh and by the way, I don’t think I like this card but hey . . . . I did get a challenge done finally! Actually this is for the SCS Color Challenge today. I don’t think my ribbon treatment qualifies for the Rubbernecker Blogger Challenge – it truly isn’t that unique and different. The colors today are Barely Banana, Groovy Guava and Chocolate Chip. My first thought was eeeeeeeewwwwwwww, but then I saw the sample and realized how great they truly are together. There might be more with these colors in my future.


I picked this Stamp Oasis image up in the booth at Orlando, and finally pulled it out of the bag today. It’s colored with Copic markers, the edges were sponged with Scattered Straw and then layered on Barely Banana and Chocolate Chip. For the background, I used Jeanne’s Birthday Word Panel stamped in Scattered Straw on Barely Banana. The edges of the background panel were sponged in Groovy Guava. I liked the look of the background so much that I decided just to add ribbon and no other layers.
