**New on the blog** Color Cue Challenge

Happy Friday. Today is a big day for my husband. As I type, he is at the car dealership contemplating getting rid of his 1999 TRUCK for a 4 door sedan. He has only had trucks since he could drive so this is a huge step. I am thinking of driving up there with a paper bag in case he is hyperventilating!

The card I made today was inspired by the Color Cue Challenge and by a card I saw by Lisa Johnson (sidebar)….. I LOVE the color palette! Seriously a perfect combination…. I used my Tim Holtz distress inks to make a pretty background using the turquoise and brown. I added some water drops to create a really great look. I love the water ink distressing technique. So cool and soooo easy…. I was going to attempt to color the bike but then decided I really wanted that background to show, so I decided against it. It has nothing do to with the fact that I really can’t color, LOL.   In addition to the Polka Dot Basics and Everyday Button Bits stamp sets, I used a stamp from my new favorite stamp company, Hero Arts, to make the text background!  It’s the friend definition background cling stamp. I used one of my Fiskars scissors to make the border.  But bad news peeps.  I LOST my edge distresser.  I hope it turns up somewhere!  I love distressing edges so I was in a panic. But then I remembered. I can just use one of my steak knives! Voila. Distressed edges…

Ok, off to the car dealership to make sure my husband is still breathing! Happy Friday!!!
