Love Generously, PPC-CC #20

Well, where did our weekend go???? My craft room was feeling very negelected this week. Who knew it was going to be sooooooo busy. We were lucky that we had some nice weather during the day but some huge storms at night. I hope everyone had a great Canada Day and Fourth of July! We were to go swimming at the lake and then have a bbq but I woke up with a neck that wouldn't move and a ton of pain. My family was great and stayed home with me without complaining *heart them*. I am still having trouble but hopefully soon it will disappear. Now onto the good stuff. Justin left yesterday and is now at home with his mom and sister. I will miss him, he sure did make me laugh. I got to meet my nephew Travis's wife and my great neice (7months) yesterday also. It sure was nice to see my nephew and family. They live in South Korea so they don't make it home very often. His wife is beautiful and his little girl is just gorgeous!!!

On to our Rockin' Color Combo #20 over at Picture Perfect Creations but I must say I found it hard to layer (in my head it worked so much better...LOL). I worked this card a few times and the end result is a card that my DD just loves. My difficulty might have come from not having the rich cherry cobbler, the closest paper was Riding Hood Red in my paper stash. The little flowers on the side are from Memories Such As These where I sell my cards and the corner scallop punch is from SU. The stampset is from Close to My Heart (it is one of my fav's), back ground stamp is from SU. Megan you rock and thanks for the super great color combo again this week.
Creating a design from my head just seemed impossible last night so I hopped on over to Card Patterns and boys they didn't let me down (one more layer was added). Thanks ladies for being an inspiration to me.

The open space on each layer bothered me and I soooo wanted to put something there but Kaitlyn said to me "MOM just leave it alone, it looks nice the way it is." So I listened to her and hope you like the end result too.

Please don't forget to stop by Megan, Nicole, Sandy, Jackie, Paula, Lori, Melissa, Debbie, Allison and Trish. They all have made amazing creations again this week. Their links are on my right hand side so please hop on over and share some love.

Wishing you a very happy Monday. Today is the first Monday out of school can you see my happy dance :) Happy crafting to you!!!
