Rarely a Dull Moment...


...before I share my card...I need to share that there is rarely a dull moment at our house.

Three days ago...our first floor toilet was not really flushing well at all.  After multiple plunges over the course of the day, the door was locked until Pat had more time to take a look at what was wrong.  (You can't just ask four boys not to use that particular bathroom...they can't remember when they come running it from outside:)!)  Then the interrogation of each boy began, "Did you put something in the toilet?"  "No."  "Nope."  "I didn't do it."  No confessions...

...fast forward to today at noon.  Collin is getting off the bus.  "Hey Collin, I fixed the toilet."  "Daddy, did you get my bubble can out of the toilet?"  "Yes, I did."  (Nasty stuff...so glad my husband is handy...and glad that I wasn't here to see or smell what it looked like.)  I guess my Collin had a little memory lapse for the last few days.   Have to laugh...it is fixable!  Pat had a little chat with Collin but was laughing his head off about Collin finally admitting it...and we knew he likely was the guilty party.

Now...on to the card!  These colors are all my dear friend, Sandy's, favorite colors!  She would love all the inspiration from the Embellish Challenge!  And if you haven't had a change to check out the new Embellish Magazine...take a look - it is awesome!

For this card, I used PTI Damask Designs - I stamped on the red background page too...which is a little hard to see.  Hope you enjoy the card!

Ingredients:  SU Whisper White, Basic Black and Real Red Paper, PTI Kraft and Twine; PTI Damask Designs Stamps; Tim Holtz Distress Bard Red Ink; Making Memories Buttons
