Migraine, migraine, go away!

I woke up with a migraine at 3:00 this morning and took two migraine pills, aka caffeine pills. Bad idea!  I spent from 3:00-6:30 doing dishes, folding laundry, dusting, organizing...and then I had to get the kids up and ready for school and drop them off at the bus. By the time I got back to my house at 7:45 I was exhausted and ready for a nap. HOWEVER, I wanted to enter a few challenges today, so I instead decided to make a card. :) I made it for the challenges at The Friday Mashup and Freshly Made Sketches.
The mashup is to create a project using elements on your project that start with A, B and C, and to use a 1-2-3 recipe (1 embellishment, 2 stamp sets, 3 colors).  Here's what I used:
C-Crushed Curry
1 embellishment-Burlap ribbon
2 stamp sets-Truly Grateful, Wonderfall
3 colors-Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze

It feels good to get back into using my fall stamp sets. My old sets are a little dusty! lol Funny that it is just now starting to feel like summer around here. Oh well, I am NOT complaining because you all know how I feel about winter and cold weather. ;)

Stamp Sets: Truly Grateful, Wonderfall
Cardstock: Crushed Curry, Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze
Ink: Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso
Tools: Blender Pen
Accessories: Burlap Ribbon
