Happy Saturday! I hope you’ve had a good week so far and you’re ready for the weekend. I don’t have any great plans myself. Mr. Stodgy and the girls have gone to the Indy Children’s Museum today. Can you believe it . . . . 20 something’s wanting to go see the Barbie Exhibit? Plus, they’re dragging their dad along. They asked me to go, but quite frankly I’d rather stay here and either get some work done outside or play in the studio. I’m voting play in the studio . . . but if it is a little cooler outside . . . I might be digging up some wild trumpet vines from the boulevard. I have this crazy idea that if I can get to live, then I can make a screen for the hot tub. I really need to get them dug up before one of the neighbors decides to mow them down. (Not likely because it hasn’t been mowed in months, but . . . wishful thinking I guess.)
You know how last Saturday I was the lone hopper in the Stamp Simply Hop. We were to use our Go-To Layout. Well . . . this week Sharon is once again having the same challenge (don’t tell anyone, but it’s because they all didn’t get their stuff done last Saturday). Instead of having Sharon only link to last week’s card, I decided to make one more.
Of course, I do have different go-to layouts as I’m sure we all do. The one I’m using today is actually a sketch that came from the very first Dirty Dozen Dare To Get Dirty Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. You can see it here. Picture it . . . 2007 and the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club was 3 years old . . . we needed to celebrate. All the DD past and present got together and presented a week of challenges to the Fan Club Members. It was fabulous and Dare to Get Dirty 2010 is only a few days away – July 17. Anyhoo, I’ve loved this sketch ever since and at one time used it so much that all my uploads were beginning to look the same.
Some of my favorite paper, a little saying and some dimensional flowers . . . . oh yeah.
