Let's Flamingle

Mornin', y'all.  How's your Thursday going?  Ryan is already up and taking all the books off the bookshelf, but I'm going to allow it until I finish writing this blog post as long as he doesn't destroy anything.

Here is today's card:

I was at Wal-Mart the other day and saw a plastic cup with this written on it, which I thought was funny but now I wonder if this card sounds like a proposition? o.0  I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

I'm counting the leaves as the smaller rectangle layer on the sketch; I wanted more of the Melon Mambo stripes to show.

Here is this week's theme challenge from the Paper Players:

I think my card counts as clean, but simple might be a bit of a stretch since it does have multiple layers.  Nevertheless I was thinking of this challenge when I made it, and I discovered I have not a single solitary bird stamp that's in the current SU! catalog.  My flamingo retired at the end of may.

Finally, here is this week's Color Throwdown:

I used Petal Pink, which despite its name seems more peachy to me, Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, and Old Olive for my colors.

Okay, time to go rescue the books and feed Ryan his breakfast.  Cheers, y'all!

Supplies, all SU!

Ink:  Petal Pink, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Memento Tuxedo Black

I think that is a cute sentiment. Very bright card. I really like it. You know, when I make a particularly bright afghan, it just makes me happy. I have one that I started on the trip to Alabama when we came to visit you there. It is bright blue and then the variegated yarn has lime green in it. Just makes me happy to look at it. It doesn't have a home yet -- it's part of my stash. But with a little grandson, it may have a home with him when he's a bit older. Hmmm.

Anyway, the colors on this card are happy colors and I love it.

LOL, not sure if it's a proposition, but it sure is cute! I love it, especially that you stamped that sentiment yourself! Love the way you incorporated the leaves into the sketch too! Very clever! Thanks for sharing this with the Players this week!

This is such a fun card and I love the colors that you used and the splatters. I admire you being able to blog while books are flying off the shelf LOL! Thanks for playing along over at The Paper Players this week!

This so fun! I love the sentiment and the bold stripes are a perfect backdrop to the scene. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
