Just Playin'

It's been kind of a play day for me. Went and got a haircut, and darn it all, wouldn't you know it, I just had to make a trip to Michaels! Took my time there and strolled around just looking at all the crafty treasures, but I was fairly good. Got my tape runners, an 8" x 8" scrapbook for my granddaughter Kaylin, and a few other little things, but didn't go overboard. Popped into T.J. Maxx, checked out the crafty section, the storage section, and the purses. Left with all my cash and my credit card unused. Does that mean I have to do some online shopping later?! LOL! Once home, it was lunch, a quick phone call to/from Mary, and settled down in the craft room. Whipped up a little card for the current Time Out Challenge, where they're featuring the most incredible Donna Mikasa of Three Umbrellas fame. Donna's cards are always intriguing and I do love to pop over to her blog and see what she's got up. The challenge for us at Time Out is to CASE this card of hers. It's pretty darn amazing.



This is how my little brain interpreted it:




Love how quickly this card came together. Neenah white base, scraps of pink and orange, a scrap of Punchinella vellum, three Michaels sequins, WPlus9 sentiment, and some gold Stampabilities ink. The hardest part (if you can call it hard at all...) was fussy cutting the vellum. Phsssst! Three whole minutes tops! And I'm off. Want to get some more craft going before Mr. Mojo realizes I'm working him. Happy dances everyone!

Wowsers, Bev, you are giving Mr. Mojo a workout of extraordinary proportions! Your take on Donna's card is ingenious; from the colours, to the layout, to the fussy cut vellum...totally top-notch awesome! I'm calling winner, winner on this delight! Applauding your ability to exercise restraint, which apparently is bypassing me of late! Yeesh, however, we are on a diet for a while. July...no shopping 'til July *grin* Fab card; fab post!
