ENJOY your Sunday!

Just a quickie to throw my hat, er, CARD in with Kristina Werner's Color Challenge #54! Hope you are all having a lovely weekend and that you, and you know who you are...: are gettin' your CRAFT on! Yee HAW!

I LOVE THESE COLORS, but when it came time to throw together a card {and I literally mean THROW!} I was SO overwhelmed with ideas! BELIEVE IT OR NOT! But I am up to my eyeballs helping my wee-girl get her fair entries together today before she goes out of town with dear friends of ours to the Monterey Bay Aquarium! DOH! So we've been crafting together for days, me being her personal assistant, art teacher, mommy and homicidal maniac... Please take that with love..... but if you've ever done a few days like this in a row, with an 8 year old who already thinks she knows EVERYTHING, you know what I mean and can have a good chuckle at my expense! Please! Anywhoo, I thought these colors were pretty hot, but no, sadly, I couldn't see a way to weave them into a Western theme.... So, I was thinking of graduation and birthday cards I need to get to and: THIS is what happened! I'm getting to enjoy cranking out these "fat free" cupcakes with my Martha Stewart glitter for super sugary, sparkle delight AND some teeny tiny paper snips to keep the color theme alive! I sure isn't my customary style of card, but that's what I love about challenges!

Hope your weekend is challenging and FUN in a good way, too!
