Friday's Child

Feels like forever since I've posted a card! Wow!

Guess I've been too busy enjoying the weather and bargain huting!

Seems everyone's got a story to share to here's mine: [picture it] so there me & hubby are at my bro's cabin in Lee River (Lac du Bonnet), when we decide to take a scoot on the golf cart---driving down the road we spot what looks like a fridge for sale for $50.00. "Ooo a fridge, no wait, a freezer" hubby says. Hmmmmmm.I'm always looking for a bargain.....so we pull in, door locked, hubby says forget it....we back out.......hubby says "That's like a $500.00 freezer".........I pull back in (I'm driving- yup hubby trusted me to drive), walk to door of cabin (of people selling it)..............ask a few questions, plug the thing in, bing-bang-boom.........SOLD! Guess that's the last time he lets me drive!!! lol 
One Kenmore upright freezer about 5 yrs old is now owned by us, sitting in our basement!!!
What a freaking deal! This was the first thing on both of our wish lists, as we constantly struggle to fit all of our frozen goods in an apartment size freezer!!! Woo hoo!!

Onto my card. I used a cute image from Mo's Digital Pencil called Friday's Child that I purchased a while back! Perfect for their most recent challenge of 'what's love got to do with it' & Digital Tuesday's "cute people" theme.
I used the sketch over at Our Creative Corner, but I gave it a little flip, as I always do & added some buttons & butterflies to meet the challenges over at Pollycraft Mondays & Incy Wincy (where the sponsor is Aspire to Thrive Children's Charity) & Dutch Dare of "2 patterned paper, 3 colors & 4 buttons".


The color orange occupying most of the card meets The Pink Elephant Challenge & also meets "think outside the box" challenge at Pile it on, as I don't use Orange that much........ if at all (haha, now I'll probly use it all the time, just because I said that).


Finally at Charisma Cardz Challenge where the theme is "3D" I will enter my card, as the butterflies appear to be flying off the page & hanging "over the edge" at the Crafty Pad!

Here's to wishing you all a great hump day tomorrow!

I'm not an orange fan either, but these shades of orange are gorgeous with what you've done with it. Love the image and the whole layout, the ribbon is great, I'm gonna have to check out that ribbon site. Way to go with all the challenges, that's pretty creative too
