Two on Tuesday!!

The color challenge today is to use Soft Suede, Teal, and Celery. Great combo, isn't it??

I just got a new cb folder, one of four in a set by Provocraft. The big one is a checkerboard pattern, and this one of bricks (?) has a real Asian feel to it.

I used my markers on Art Of Life, still one of my favorite sets, and crimped a piece of celery, which was the "dessert" of the challenge. I had a great piece of ribbon to match. How cool is that?

This is my entry for MMTPT88. The story is pretty involved, but my response to the story is this:

Frazzle, the rooster at McCoy's Farm is panic-struck to think he may lose his job. Frizzle is out behind the barn teaching the hens to "rap", and their nests are empty. Normally they lay 42,00 eggs, but today there are only 17! Maybe Frazzle needs to learn "rap" to get those girls back where they belong, but everyone knows they lay more eggs when the music is soothing. Here's the RAP for the card (with apologies to your sensibilities).

Behind the barn
Learnin' how to rap
Layin' those eggs
Is really no snap.

Frazzle can't do it.
He needs them girls.
Losin' his job's
The end a his world!

Send Frizzle back.
Fill those nests.
Heck with that rap,
Muzak's the best!!

Anne, your color combo card is just beautiful! LOVE how you embraced the boldness of the soft suede with the pop of the other colors. I LOVE that new cb pattern, too. Great accent ribbon!

Now the rapping rooster is fanatstic and the story just made me LOL! Great cards!

These are just wonderful, Anne! Love your color challenge card but that rooster is perfect. He reminds me of Foghorn Leghorn; one of my all time faves.

Am really loving what you did with Betty's colors today! You rocked it...especially with that new new embossed BG and perfect ribbon! Oh, yes, you rap better than most recorded versions I've heard lately - lol!

Anne, your cards are so fabulous!! I can't wait to get back home and catch up on the challenges. Have been having a wonderful time in New York City and now we are down at the Jersey Shore. Today we will be going to the Boardwalk in Ocean City, it will be nice to see the Atlantic Ocean again. It's supposed to be 87 degrees today so it will be like I am here in the summer.
