It's all about the cake
I'm actually a bit jealous of most of my friends out there in card land. I hear you talking about how supportive your hubby's are and how they "get" your hobby, and mine . . . .NOT! He's not mean about it or anything and he would never tell me to stop. He just doesn't get my need to create. I tried to coax him into it by mentioning here and there that some card he had seen me working on had won a Top 3 winner or spotlight to which he had to come back and zing me with "you mean a Top 3 Loser, cause if you didn't win, you lost". Ha ha hee hee isn't he just so funny. That became the running joke, "how many Top Losers did you get today?" Smart alec.
Slowly but surely I'm beginning to win him over and it's changed to "how many wins did you get today" and he'll congratulate me if there happens to be one. Well I guess now that he's given my hobby a little respect he suddenly knows all about it. While working on this card he came in while I was trying to decide what color buttons to use. I had some orange ones in my hand and all of a sudden he starts yelling "NO orange, NO orange!!!" I thought he was going to snatch them out of my hand. So red it is and now I have a consultant. LOL
So here is my card for this weeks challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil. I've used "Tall Cake" and as many bright eye popping colors as I could to fit the bill for our sweet Franz's "Bright Colors" challenge. Pop out your brights and a Mo image and come play along for your chance at some Mo goodness from the DP store.
