October 2012 Papertrey Blog Hop Card 2

This is my second card for the hop.  I really like the American Crafts Glitter paper it's so, well glittery!  I still think that I favor the more traditional Christmas color combos.  Although who doesn't like the PTI Raspberry Fizz color it is beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the other entries in the hop!

October 2012 Papertrey Blog Hop

This month it is all about breaking out of your comfort zone and trying out some non-traditional color schemes for a holiday card or tag!

Boy was this a challenge!  I never really saw myself as a "traditional" color girl when it came to Christmas but this challenge showed me that I like the very traditional colors.  Sorry for the bad pic, my good camera was missing so I took this with my phone ( you can see my shadow on the card, lol)  The card is only slightly better in real life.  I kept playing with the filters on photobucket to get some more pop out of it but is just isn't there. :) I have another card that I will post when I get home from work as I am already late!  I can't wait to see all of the other beautiful entries for the hop!  You can check them out on Nicole's blog.

Thanks for stopping by!

p.s. I don't know what is up with the white behind the wording!   It is annoying, I will try and find a fix for it this weekend.

Five Question Friday 10/19/12


This week’s questions & My Answers:

1. Where do you hide junk when people come over?
I used to hide dirty dishes in the oven...

2. Do political ads help you decide who you are going to vote for?
No, I usually know after the primary who I am voting for so all of the ads are annoying! Only 18 days to go! 

3. What's your favorite holiday party to host?
I don't host parties for others but I always cuddle up with a blanket and hot cocoa for It's a Wonderful Life to have a party of one.
4. You go to an island with your husband and can only take one personal item. What is it?
5. If you found out your spouse was a Dexter style serial killer (only kills people to save others) would you rat?
Hell no, the next "other" he would want to save is himself and I would be wacked!

Six Word Saturday 10/6/12

I just want to run away!

Unfortunately for me, I was born with a responsible gene and I don't do things like that.  Plus I know running away doesn't solve anything.  Still wouldn't it be wonderful to be sitting on a warm beach with the sun shining down and just listening to the waves crash...
Maybe I should get one of those alarm clocks that play outdoor sounds.  :)  

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.  Happy Thanksgiving to those of you up in the great white north!
