CR84FN32

I always want to play along with the sweet gals over at CR84FN but with my little whipper snappers  the opportunity does not come often.  When I saw the colors for this go around I had to figure out some "ME" time at my craft table and today opportunity knocked and I answered the door.

Here is inspiration photo over at CR84FN for this challenge and I have to say 
I LOVE these colors together.



I made this card for my niece Stephanie, 
she has just graduated from 8th grade and had a very successful year!!!  
Way to go Steph~~


I used an impression plate from PTI to give them a bit of texture ....... 
I cannot remember the name of it but I am sure you all know :)


This is the sentiment that is inside the mini envelope.
  
I must say it was nice to create something today.

Women's World Cup is taking place in Germany right now and the Germans play again tomorrow.  I am cheering for America and Germany and if they meet in the quarter finals, I will be hiding in my closet because I cannot watch games like that.
When Germany plays my nice Bavarian husband Curt likes
 to have a nice Bavarian breakfast to put us in a festive mood .........
here is a photo of breakfast beverage to go along with the German cold cuts and butter bread.   



IT WAS DELICIOUS ~~

HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!

I keep looking at it and each time I see something I'd not seen before that catches my eye...oh, ribbon peeking out, twine, a tiny tag, antiquing on the edge of the doily, soft leaves on the kraft...it's really pretty!!

Oh yeah baby...bring on the beer for breakfast! No hiding in the closet either...someone has to win!
Boy, when you get "ME time" you really put it to good use. I need some lessons from you. This card is more like a project! So many details and things to do..it's interactive! LOL. Great choice of colors too...I like that you went with the darker shades of the challenge. FAB creation...you need more "YOU TIME" for sure!
