cQc #335 ~ Laugh Every Day!

Hello friends! I hope those of you celebrating Easter enjoyed a lovely holiday. We hosted dinner for nine, along with our little Sweet P! It was an eventful morning. I put the ham in the oven and about an hour later my hubby said, your timer is going off on the stove. I didn't have a timer on! The oven was at an extreme heat and wouldn't turn off!! Hubby flipped the breaker, so that was remedied. My mom and dad live just a mile or so away, so off I went to use their oven. They weren't  home from church yet, but I have a key. Problem...they just got a new storm door and it was locked!! Luckily they arrived just a short time later and we got that baby in the oven! A couple of trips back and forth for the roasted carrots and dinner rolls, disaster averted...thanks mom!!



So how about a quick and simple, stress free card for our new ColourQ challenge. I used a few PTI Flower Fusion stamped and die cut blooms along with a good sprinkling of rhinestones. That's it, easy peasy!



Have a great day, hope to see your cards in our gallery this week! ~Lisa

No indication of stress with this sensational card!! I love this color combo : )

Sorry about the oven - hope you won't have to buy a new one. I hate buying appliances LOL - I think of all the other neat stuff I could buy with that money . : )

So much for a simple ham for dinner:) glad it all worked out.

Goodness, what an Easter adventure! Good thing your parents live close by and you were able to save the day. I once had an oven that liked to turn itself OFF randomly so I had a tense Thanksgiving one year hoping that the oven would behave and the turkey would actually cook! And I love this sweet card. The flowers are so happy looking and the sentiment is perfect for them!
