rasberry suite color challenge

What a day! First of all Chase is back in town, and well we have never mowed our grass. Since we didn't buy it until October it was cold enough not to have to mow. And well, it was looking pretty bad, especially since all of our neighbors decided to mow last weekend. So today, Chase and I invested in our very first push mower. Growing up on a farm the only mower we had was an enormous riding mower, so pushing was an experience. Um... yea that's a work out.

On the crafty side of things I participated in Dawn McVey's first color challenge. First of all, I love her blog, so if you're a stamper check it out. Here were the colors she picked out for the first challenge:
Here is my take on the colors:

Stamps: Friends 'Til The End
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Craft White
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Rasberry Fizz, White
Accessories: Glitter, Pumpkin Ribbon, Diamond Stickles, Fiskars Threading Water Punnch
Thanks for stopping by!

Loving your sparkly white accent! FABULOUS. You were cracking me up with the mowing story. I grew up on a farm and we still live on a farm now, so I can't imagine just a push mower, LOL! I bet you get done a lot quicker than the 5 hours it takes us though. Anyway, glad you took time out to come and make a card. It rocks!!! Great job on the challenge.

It's a good life!
