4/4 Thinking About Dad
I used to participate quite a lot in the challenges over at SCS. Lately, however, I've been too busy to play. NOT fun . . . I am resolving to spend more time playing and less time working. (My IN box is taunting me this very minute! Looks like I'll have to tackle that here at some point whether I want to or not!)
Anyway, I did get on Splitcoast . . . my favorite stamping website in the whole world . . . and I did check out the challenge today. That was at 6:30 or so this morning. During the morning hours spent helping my kids with homework, cleaning the kitchen, the furnace room and tackling a mountain of laundry (where does it all come from??), I had the challenge in mind. This afternoon, I chased the kids outside assuring them that there would be plenty of time for homework on Sunday afternoon. The weather is fabulous . . . maybe our first 60 of the year! Then, I sat down to do the challenge - one color and white.
I decided to make my one color Really Rust because I was thinking about my dad (whose favorite season is fall) and I wanted to make a card for him. Well . . . white and rust wasn't cutting it for me so true to form, I changed the rules to include one color and white OR vanilla! lol! And, I just LOVE how this card turned out! My dad hasn't missed a duck opener in sixty-some years. He has a chocolate lab named "Penny", and he's been a farmer his whole adult life raising many bushels of wheat and corn through the years to the present. This card is just PERFECT for him. Since hunting is such a big part of his life, I am always drawn to purchase stamps that reflect this passion. He once told me that he thought the most peaceful place in the world was in a duck slew. Having gone hunting with him numerous times in my life, I agree that it is peaceful . . . and most times FREEZING COLD!!
