rs #76, cqc #202, ccrs ~ Enjoy the Journey!

Okay, I have two really weird things to tell you today before I get to my card. First we woke up to a chilly 46 degrees! Yikes people this is August!!! And the second is just as silly as it is weird. I had a dream the other night that I was a speed boat racer LOL! The boats were rubber rafts with big ol engines on them. But get this, mine was POLKA DOT!!!  Bright red with big white polka dots and my helmet was red with a white daisy sporting a polka dot center!!! HAHAHA....I know, weird right!!! Seriously though, if I did race boats mine would most definitely be covered in polka dots. *wink*

But enough of my silliness. I have a card today that I'm entering into three challenges. I've used the latest Retro Sketch as my jumping off point. Then I followed with the new ColourQ colors and topped things off with sparkly sequins for the Catered Crop recipe swap challenge. I think this one has a masculine feel and would be perfect for one of the guys in our family.



I've used one little snippet of Daffodil Delight to anchor the MME dp. I curved the bottom of my next panel along the edge of my PTI Mehndi Medallion. The medium medallions were each stamped twice, the second being punched then added with foam tape. I sprinkled on a few sequins given to me by my SIL (aka: stamping buddy!). I think this pretty red color is my favorite from the bunch! And I must say I'm quite smitten with this sentiment from the Precious Remembrance Shop Journey stamp set.

Well I'm off to pick up something to make for dinner. The fridge is running a bit low. Enjoy your day friends and thanks for stopping by. ~Lisa
