It's been too long

It's that time again!!! It is time for Dawn's color combo . I get giddy when I see another challenge pop up. I just don't even think to put these color combos together, but I adore every card I make with them. Serriously how does she come up with these?

Oh and do you notice those plum pudding buttons!!!!! I am in love already. I have an order in my cart that has been changed about 50 times already and it isn't even the 15 yet. Did you see Dawn's new set Scattered Showers Additions ? I am in love already and it is only day one. Serriously this might be my go to set for the next month LOL! Can you tell I am just a little bit excited, I have that extra $50 from Steph so my budget this month is higher than normal and I am so excited!

I combined this delicious color combo with a fun Stamp TV sketch challenge. Found here

Here is my creation
Can you even believe I hadn't used these little chickies yet? I think they are stinking cute. Did you notice the paper piercing around the oval and the paper piercing oval around the sentiment? I just learned how to do that from Beate's video. It was so stinking easy as soon as someone showed me. I am such a visual learner LOL!

Our sun has been hiding for days, so this is the best picture I could manage. I forsee a new lighting tent LOL! I love the floss that is a raspberry fizz match and then fun buttons. Everything else is Bravo Burgandy as I don't have scarlet jewel ink YET (that is on the order for this month).

This is for one of my friends who I really don't get to talk to enough. Do you have those. I adore her but we are both in a season of life that keeps us busy and not by our phones. Anyway, I think she will like this card.

As I was taking these photos, I looked up and had a moment. I thought I would show you my back yard. This morning it was so delightful I was overcomed with joy and wanted to share some of that. If you can imagine hearing the birds chirp and the wind chime quitely behind you. It really is so neat!!! It really is a good life! I am surronded by grass and corn fields LOL!

It's a good life!
