Perk Up!





I enjoyed this colour challenge from Color Throwdown this past week - Elegant Eggplant, Tempting Turquoise, Certainly Celery, Pool Party and Pacific Point.....yeah, there's not a whole lot of Pacific Point 'cause I have a difficult time with that colour - but it's peaking in one tea cup!

The sketch is from Create with Connie and Mary.  I couldn't bring myself to hang the little banners off the paper.  I can go outside the box, but not that far - today anyway.


I went and cleaned up my stamp room thinking I'd be getting a delivery of new stuff this afternoon.  Much to my disappointment the UPS gal did not bring a Stampin'Up! box to the door.  The flip side is knowing I WILL be getting it tomorrow.  

Happiness is something to look forward to! (how many of you remember the whole Peanuts series of Happiness is????)
Hope there's tons of happiness in your life - thanks for stopping by!

Ahhh, this is just TOO CUTE! LOVE all the perk up words along the side (appropriate for me this morning...need a second cup of coffee!) and the trio of banners behind the focal point! Thanks for playing along with the sketch challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary!

What an adorable take on the sketch Joan. Love these colors and those itty bitty banners. The sentiments are so cute all jumbled up too! So glad you joined us at CCMC! ((hugs))

Really cute! And if the recipient of this card doesn't perk up, then there is something wrong with them! Thanks for playing the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge this week!
