A Tour of Some Random Thoughts

Here are some of my random thought moments over the last few days...
  • We have makeup to cover up our freckles, but why hasn't someone invented a makeup that GIVES you freckles?
  • What are the odds that someone named Hannibal would be a Cannibal?
  • Someone should open a chain of safe places to sell things to avoid the crazy people on Craigslist. Just an office with a security guard and cameras where you can bring your stuff and safely sell it without leading the crazies to your house.
  • What if we banned all advertising, signs and campaign contributions and politicians had to actually meet their constituents and make their case PERSONALLY?
  • Poetry readings were rapping before rapping was cool.
  • Why don't we have those soundwave thingies the OTHERS put up on LOST that make scary Russians fall down and writhe around all helpless? I can think of tons of applications for that.
  • I think the undiscovered country is a battery that lasts more than an hour.
I've been trapped inside by the stupid hurricane this week, so I'm feeling more random than normal. I'm also in need of some COLOR.

This was a fun card to make. It was a color challenge for VSN, and you know I love complementary colors, so I enjoyed this one.

The panel the flower is on is actually colored with Copics to match the Summer Sun card base. It started out as a piece of white X-Press It blending card. Then I colored the flower from Every Moment and the background and rounded the corners. The trim is from the new Tasteful Trim Big Shot die which I ADORE. In the vertical piece I punched holes in the center of each oval shape for a little more interest.

The greeting is stamped on some retired DSP and punched with the decorative label punch.

Is this a crazy week with the holiday or what? I don't know what day it is!

I'm headed to Fort Worth Saturday for Regionals - are you gonna be there?

Have you signed up for the UBlue Cyber Club? Attended one of my Webinars?? Come on - get your geek on! :) Want to see my other blog?
