More TCP Tues

Well, not really more of this week's TCPTUES, just an entry for a new week. Before I talk about what I made, can I just take a minute to vent? This week the air conditioner broke...AGAIN. You see, it breaks EVERY year when we first turn it on. Every year they come to fix it and every year it breaks. Here's the bad part. We had this house built 3.5 years ago and moved in March 06, so 4 summers, and 4 breakings. We haven't paid for the fixing since it's an outstanding issue, but still it breaks. I hate sleeping in hot.

This time a valve was fixed. I can't imaging what it next year. At least it's fixed for another 11 months.

K, how about a happier note, here is my submission for TCPTUES. The challenge was to make a card using navy, green and white. I kinda made my own interpretation and used olive, a different blue and cream.

I found some boho flower paper in my stash that matched the colors. I also played along with the sketch challenge on SCS. Overall, I think it's pretty groovy.

Here's a closeup of the embellishments I used. I love little sparkly things. Does that make them... Tiny Baubles?!?! harde har har... tiny baubles... I was SO proud of that one today and couldn't wait to get home and put it on the blog.
I need to get a little sleep (hopefully) before Kev gets home. You see, Kev LOVES Star Trek and we have tickets to the 9:55pm show. I am hoping against all hope that at least 1 person is dressed in Trek regalia. PLEASE just one.

Lara, i think this card is pretty GROOVY too! Came out great - love the dimension you did with the image. The flower was nice finishing touch! Hope you enjoyed Star Trek (lukcy girl!!!) - and that someone did dress up! I am going to have to wait to Sat. to see it but I am hoping it is worth the wait! :)
