*I Hate Cleaning House*

Ahhhhh, Sunday.... I can say that now that the house is clean again.  I really hate cleaning the house.  I love that my husband and sons help, but I still hate the process.

Hate it.

Ick.

Now all that's left that has to be done today is getting a few groceries and finishing the laundry.

I enjoyed a quiet evening to myself for a while last night... and then I got bored.  The kids were busy with their games and Bruce was out.  I crafted a bit, watched some TV on Netflix, and then gave up and went to bed around 11... where I couldn't fall asleep.  Wasn't a stellar night, but it wasn't horrible either.

This is one of the cards I created last night....  once again, fulfilling the elements of two challenges....
Items Used:
*Cardstock: PTI White
*Images: PTI Beautiful Blooms; My Sentiments Exactly Little Birdie
*Ink: Brilliance Rocket Red; VersaMagic Tea Leaves
*Challenges:  Use It Tuesday #4; Stamping Vacation



Let me tell you about these two challenges.... first, Use It Tuesday #4 is a challenge to use red as the predominant colour on your card, showing support for the devastation in Japan.  The people behind the Use It Tuesday blog are going to make a donation to the Red Cross based on the number of entries they get in the challenge... so please make a card that is clean and simple with red being the predominant colour.  You'll find their blog HERE.  You have until April 1st to play along....

The second challenge is a new one to me... thanks to Allison (see her link under CalGals) for pointing me in the right direction.  It is called Stamping Vacation.  It would appear that they put up a new challenge daily and right now you have until the end of April to participate.  This challenge was to make a one layer card with a lot of white space.
