Good morning!

Did you all have a great weekend? The weather here was sooooo nice! It hit 89 degrees here and I was in HEAVEN!! This is my kind of weather, being from Australia and all. :) Our oscillating fan went to fan heaven last year, so The Man went out and bought us new and improved version. It's tall, dark and handsome...and yes, I'm still talking about the fan! LOL

Despite the beautiful weather, I got a lot of things done this weekend. I cleaned the bathrooms, the kitchen, windows, carpets, those lovely cobwebs in the corners at the ceilings and mopped the floors. We also took a drive out to a great little store out by our favorite strawberry patch and bought some locally made cheese and homemade donut holes (YUM!). On top of all that, I also made 6 cards this weekend! I'm still scratching my head as to how I fit it all in! I wish every weekend was as productive as that! :)

This week's There She Goes challenge (TSG54) is a color challenge and those colors are Regal Rose, Kiwi Kiss and Opulent Orchid. See any of those colors on my card?? That's because I couldn't find a single piece of patterned paper that matched those colors at all (and I don't own any SU paper) - so I did my own thing this week! :) If you have these colors though, you should definitely play along! (Head over to the TSG blog for all the details and to check out what some of the Trendsetters did for this challenge!

I had to use another image from that fabulous What's Up Buttercup? set because I can't get enough of it! I used papers from October Afternoon's Thrift Shop collection to match the colors of the buttercup. The layout is from this week's Sketch For You To Try. Every month Jen Del Muro picks someone to be her guest designer, and this month is Iwona Palamountain, who just so happened to pick one of my cards from TSG's Week In Review a few weeks back, so I had to use this sketch this week to show my support!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Tomorrow I have some exciting news for you! ;)

I wish I could say my weekend was as productive. I did get a peach tree planted though.

Your card is gorgeous! I love the colors and you know I love this set. I got mine last week and can't wait to find some time to play with it.

Oh, you and I had the same kind of weekend... I weeded out kids clothes and cleaned and cleaned somemore... still have a little more spring cleaning to do but it feels good to be mostly done with it. :D

This is gorgeous! I love these papers... they are so soft and serene together. Just perfect!

Beautiful card, Sandra! Love the colors even if they don't match the challenge colors!! LOL!!! BTW, Kiwi Kiss? Love that retired color and only have a tiny scrap left. Sure wish SU would have added that to their new line up of colors.

Hey, could you send me some of your mojo?!? Wow! Girl, you are one moving machine!!!
