Good Friday morning!  I hope y’all have had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend.  It’s Kentucky Derby weekend here in Louisville and so far I’ve been able to avoid all the hullabaloo and such.  By the time the Derby Festivities are over here (with all the morning news reporting from trackside, etc.) you really get burned out.  I don’t even have a pick this year . . . and can think of lot better things to do with $5 across the board or a $10 box.

Since today is Friday, it’s also Just For Fun® Friday – Color Challenge #9.  This week I’ve challenged the Design Team, and you, to use the following colors:


I hope you play along this week and post a direct link to your project using Mr. Linky on the Just For Fun® Blog.

Here’s my card for this week using my inspiration for the challenge colors, Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman.


I decided to make some Inchie Art since I hadn’t played around with inchies for quite some time.  I stamped out the 2 cars from JFF and then die cut/embossed using the 1” square from the Spellbinders™ Square Nesties.  To add some texture to the inchies, I covered all three with Rock Candy Crackle Paint.  When it was dry, I sponged Old Paper Distress Ink over the cracks.


Being a masculine card, no bows but a knot, and plenty of brads!  The twill was so clean compared to the rest of the card, that I dirtied it up with a tad bit of Old Paper and water and then swiped some Vintage Photo across it.

Don’t forget to visit the JFF Designers participating in the Challenge for further inspiration:

That’s all I have for now, but check back tomorrow because I think I might have a nice new adventure to tell you about!  See, you have to take advantage of adventures that come your way because life is too damn short!
