Color Challenge!

I love Crystal Effects! I had to take this photo on an angle so you could see the shine on the raised olive. What a fabulous color combination today with RED (my FAVORITE!), black, cream, and olive! I had fun using a variety of punches, my Cuttlebug, and some great ribbon. I hope you like it.

I worked in the yard yesterday, sat in the sun and read, (finished Eclipse), and was in and out of the hot tub. The pool is uncovered now.......the awful color is due to IRON. DH is very unhappy. Hopefully, the BIG DOUGH spent on specific chemicals will work. Talked to Mom this morning, and she is getting her list ready. We leave for vacation on May 10th, Mother's Day, for two weeks. My birthday is always spent in NH, and DH gives me money to play with. YAY! Even retired people like to go on vacation!! I think it's time I made my list too....which stamps shall I take? Which paper? Embellishments? Inks? Punches? Will I have room for clothes?????

Have a fun and creative day, my friends. Hugs.
