Two Challenges and a Birthday :O)

I made this card for a co-worker whose birthday is today! I needed one in a pinch (kind of...I only had the morning to work on it) and the Color Throwdown challenge (CTD43) and Jen DelMuro's SFYTT were a perfect combo to produce this card in the limited time I had. It fell into place pretty easily it seemed (which is RARE for me)...so I was pleased it worked out :) I have to say I'm extra proud of myself for decorating the inside of this card. You can see the corner I decorated with punched flowers in this photo. I love the look when the inside is decorated but rarely do I take the time to do it. I need to stop being lazy :O) LOL
Oh, and my photos are HORRENDOUS! I didn't realize how bad they were until I uploaded to SCS yesterday. Thank goodness I had a few minutes to go outside and take another shot that turned out a little clearer. My apologies for the blurry pics...I hate it when that happens and I can't get my camera to focus just right. I really need to take classes on simple photography. Sometimes it turns out perfectly the first time and others I just can't seem to capture appropriately. I need to figure out what everything means on my simple Canon Digital Elph. Once I learn each function I think I'll know what to increase and decrease to obtain clear photos each time. UGH...I would rather someone sit here and show me while explaining though. I'm a quick, visual learner if I can take the wheel right away and give it a spin. Know what I mean??

Anywho...that's it for tonight. We just had a nice afternoon with some close friends we haven't seen in a while, so we're winding down here. Hope you have a long weekend like me and are spending time relaxing with loved ones.

Great card Kristin! I love the color combo and layout. Happy to report Ethan is having a great day....100% better than yesterday or the last 4 weeks! It's wonderful just sitting around here at home playing legos and watching the kids interact. I haven't had a good day like this is a long time....long overdue! Back to playing!
