Just call me "Grace"


Whaaa Hooo.... today I am starting a weeks vacation. We are not going away which is perfectly fine by me ..... just a few day trips here and there and hopefully a lot of stamping.

Just a short story about another one of my Brenda....isms!!! Thursday at work I was on a high realizing that just one more day and I would be off for a weeks vacation. So as I am talking with my bestest co-worker Janet, I decided to do a pirouette to show my excitement ..... so as I am doing my most graceful ballerina move my turn was just a bit too close to her desk and my arm caught the collection of pictures, knick knacks and name tag which all went crashing down. Luckily I did not break a thing which was completely amazing in itself and didn't get hurt other than my pride. I did get the knick name "Grace" for the rest of the day though.

On to my card ....... which was created for the House Mouse and the Color Throwdown challenge. Coloured up the HM image using my prisma pencils, added glitter to the icing, party hats and candles. The dark brown base was layered with striped DP paper, layered a strip of pink and green paper, green ribbon and finally metal corners.

Funny story!! I have had that same nickname since I was a child! What a great card, I especially like the color around the image, it really makes you think of the candle glow.
