thanx - I needed that!

A hybrid card for today - it's mid-week and I'm home playing. I asked for a last-minute vacation day yesterday afternoon, by special request from my DH, who thought we should head to a local golf store to stock up on supplies as our league starts next week ... and maybe check out clubs while we're there. I'd like a new pair of sandals too. My DH gave me a gift card to go towards clubs a year ago Christmas and I hadn't used it, so today's the day! I put the card in his card this year with a note that it goes towards today's purchases.

Until then, though, I thought I'd play on the PC. I made a thank you card for a friend who loves Penny Black hedgehogs - they're so stinkin' cute, y'know?! The card's based on today's Splitcoaststampers' SC277 sketch challenge and uses a digi image someone e-mailed me last year. I used Photoshop's color picker tool to grab a few colors from the image and colored some card stock - recycled handout materials from my work place in honor of it being Earth Day tomorrow (and 'cuz I'm temporarily out of white card stock except for scraps!).

stamps: Penny Black's Acrobat, MSE's hand written (inside sentiment); paper: recycled handout cover from work; inks: ColorBox Frost White, Tri-C watercolor markers; accessories: SU 1/4" pretty in pink grosgrain ribbon from my most recent ribbon share; tools: ek success' dotted scallop border punch
