we're back.

Well, we made it safely back from Chicago today, however our flight back wasn't painless. I had motion sickness the whole time, and to top it off, we were in the air an hour longer than we expected. We did have a fabulous trip. I'll post more about our trip in the coming days, but in the mean time here's one of my favorite pictures:Yes, that's us a Wrigley, and yes we are being rained on. But check out those seats! It was such a fun experience.

Since our flight got in midday I had time to participate in Dawn's color challenge:

My sister graduates from high school next week. My sister is 8 years younger than me, and I can NOT believe she is graduating. I remember explaining to her how old she would be when I would start middle school, and how old she would be when I graduated high school and finally collage. It seems we have passed all of those landmarks that at the time seemed so far way at the time.

Here's the card I came with:

Check out those fabric thickers! I think they are so fun. Of course I had to dye them with my ink pad to get them the right color. I also made the 'A' pink. My sister's name is Alison, so I thought that was a fun touch. I think my sister will love it.

I also have a cute pink butterfly that I just realized I didn't add before I photographed. So please pretend!

Here's what I used:
Stamps: Damask Designs
Ribbon: Ripe Artichoke Ribbon
Accesories: Fabric Thickers, Basic Grey Buttons

Oh, I LOVE it! Great grad card! I love the stamp set too! I made some graduation cards over the weekend and I went with colors that weren't our school colors! I liked doing something different, because our school colors are orange and black (so boring)! Glad ya'll had a great trip!

How stinking funny! You were in Chicago and flew home as we were flying home to Chicago. Glad you had a fun time at the Cubbies game. Love the grad card. I have a sister who is 7 years younger and I just can't believe when she grows up LOL! Way to go with this fabulous color combo.

It's a good life!

Your card rocks! Great job and how clever to change the color of the "A."
