Thought for the day -

Good Morning everyone! Can you believe it is Thursday already!! I know you aren't supposed to wish your life away but I do live for Fridays...more playtime!!

My card for today is for 2 challenges. The first challenge is for this weeks Color Throwdown and this is the swatch they provided:

I did manage to use all but the yellow in cardstock....but you do see a little yellow in my the image. hehe

The 2nd challenge is for this weeks Midnight Madness sketch challenge. I am really becoming addicted to their challenges...the sketches are always great and their blog is incredible. There is a pretty awesome tutorial this week so you should go check them out. Here is sketch 22-

All of my dp is from the Domestic Goddess line by Graphics 45. I just love their paper and I love these vintage ads- thought it was a perfect fit for my image of MuMu hanging her laundry. I used buttons and safety pins, brad and fabric remember snap for my embellies. I don't know if you can read the sentiment on the snap (poor picture tonight as the lighting was very poor) but it reads remember...perfect for the vintage ads.
Supplies Used: Cardstock-Stampin Up, DP-Graphics 45, Stamp- Mo's Digital Pencil, saftety pins, buttons, remember snap from Melissa Francis, brad, and image was colored using my copics.
Well enjoy your day!
