*Looked Better In My Head*

Happy Friday my friends.... I can't believe how fast this week flew by.... it's not that I was all that busy, but the week feels like it just started!  Sure, on Monday I was feeling like it was Wednesday, but the rest of the week just went by so fast!

Absolutely crazy!

Big news in our house this week... Bruce was offered a job at a downtown oil and gas company and he handed in the signed offer this morning.  He will be starting work either late next week or early the week after that.  He's excited to be working with a couple of former colleagues again.  While I sometimes miss having the house to myself since he's been home for a while now, I know it will take a little time for me to get used to not having him around all the time!  It will take a little bit of an adjustment!

I am still surprised that I've been playing with challenges while they're still current for the last couple of weeks... I had gotten used to playing catch up over the last year or so!
Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Marina Mist, So Saffron

*Images: Whippersnapper
*Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; coloured pencils
*Tools: Big Shot; Sizzix Daisies #2 die
*Embellishments: Pebble's Candy Dots; Stampin' Up! grosgrain ribbon
*Challenges:  Mojo177; Curtain Call Color Challenge #51



The samples I saw of this colour combination looked so much better than what this turned out to be....  it's not great, but it's not bad....maybe just too dull or something???  Maybe I should have switched the use of the blue and the black cardstocks.....
