Once You Choose Hope

I found a new color challenge blog the other day, Color Chef. This card is for challenge 53, red, light blue, dark blue, and either cream or white.

I went super simple with this one and created a one layer card. I hardly ever do these and in my goal to have several blog posts ready to go over the course of the next few weeks, it only seemed fitting.

The flower and sentiment are part of the Faith, Hope, Love set from Paper Makeup Stamps. I love this set, definitely one of my all time favorites, period. So, the flower was stamped once with full strength ink and then once more without re-inking. The final touch is some self-adhesive gems on the left side of the sentiment.

The fellas and I are heading to see Shrek Forever After. Then, over the course of the next few weekends, we are attending a concert at the Elvis Museum and exploring at the Dinosaur Walk Museum. These are a few of the perks of working in the tourism industry in a huge tourism area. Thankfully we are able to do these things at little or no cost since we will most likely not be taking a full on family vacation this year. It'll just be a series of long weekends before school starts, at least for the most part. But, we are home bodies and are just as happy here as anywhere else.
