Laugh a Little

Hi Everyone!

I've was up very very early this morning....like ridiculously early! My phone dinged at 3:45 this morning with a message from my husband. While I'm always glad to hear from him, it did scare the bajeezus out of me! Needless to say the resulting rapid heart beat that followed my awakening made it rather difficult for me to go back to sleep. Only another fellow crafter could understand that I couldn't think of anything else to do except go downstairs and brew some coffee. I sat on the couch for 30 mins and suddenly realized that I had a whole other hour of complete peace and quiet. So what did I do? I crafted. I didn't quite get it all put together until a little while ago; but I made good headway on it and it cut down on my crafting time later.
So, anyhow here are the details for this card. I used Not Quite Navy, Sage Shadow, Melon Berry for my card stock colors. The pattern paper is from Basic Grey "Hopscotch" collection. This is one of my new items I got recently and I am just loving it!! The sentiment is from Hero Arts "Live Life" set (another new addition.)

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

1. Mojo Monday: Sketch 179

2. Incy Wincy: Uses Punches and Dies (I used Petite Circle Nestabilities, and Threading water punch by Fiskars)

3. Lexi Creations: Flowers

4. Stamp with Fun: 3 papers, 3 flowers, ribbon
