Did you think I fell off the face of the earth? Died? Been sick? Actually, we had a huge storm on Tuesday and it knocked out our electricity. We've been without electricity for the past two days. I so appreciate that amenity now. I didn't get much card making done because it was impossible to see well enough to craft after dark and that's usually my time to craft. So it was early to bed but not very good sleeping because of all the neighbors' generators. I can't complain too much about the noise because one neighbor was nice enough to let us plug in our refrigerator yesterday. We alternated our frig and freezer and hopefully we won't lose too much food. I haven't been through the freezer yet. But enough of that! On to the good stuff.
Tonight I finally got back to my "bright" desk and worked on the Midnight Madness Challenge. I fell in love with the sketch this week. There are so many possibilities! Here's the sketch:
Maybe because it's colored purple, one of my favorite colors! Or maybe I just like the layout. Anyway, here's what I came up with using the sketch:
I love that colorful Lime Rickey paper by Basic Grey and I used one of my favorite stamps: the hot air balloons from Eclectic Summer stamp set by Gina K Designs. The sentiment is from Elegant Flowers by Gina K. I added a few star brads to finish the card off. Check out priscillastyles blog for all the details on the Midnight Madness #13 challenge.
Hope you all had a wonderful week. My favorite part of the week is coming up. I hope to be back with more things to share and no more power outages. Keep those fingers crossed!
