Kwerner Color Inspiration #54

Another busy Saturday! Chase and I watched Taken last night, and unfortunately the intensity of that movie gave me a sleepless night. All I could think about was how somewhere in the world there were girls just like the girl in the movie. All that too say it was good. Thankfully without of a lot of sleep I was able to get up early to hit the yard sales (more on that below).

Yesterday my sweet grandmother bought me a sewing machine. So all of the card making time I had today revolved around the very small amount of sewing on this card. I also used Kwerner's colors for this weeks color challenge:
I'm not thrilled with the card, but I think I might write 'baby' on it in cursive and it might make it a little more complete.
In other news, I bought four mason jars with handles at a yard sale for $1. I decided to use the as a centerpiece, and I have to say this is really making me happy. All of the flowers are from my mother's card (she's a pro). And here's a little hint into what Chase and I have been working on all day. The Windex on the floor should be a good hint. I'll post more pictures when it is done.
Also, don't forget about the give away! Just post here.

Juan and I watched Taken on Friday and I too could not help but think about all the young girls all over the world who are in the same position she was in! That night I had a hard time sleeping too...but it was a good movie!
