Brrr, it sure is cold here in New England today. Only 12 degrees as I left for work this morning. I was so glad to hear the weather forecast say it will be warmer this weekend. I was also so glad to get such a great color challenge to work on this week for bloggers challenge. Our challenge (and yours too if you decide to play along) was to use the colors peach, green and white. How springlike are those? My biggest challenge was figuring out what image to go with. I couldn't help but finally settle on a floral image, although I was tempted to do a peach jam card. Maybe I'll work on that this weekend, that is if I have time.
My son plays on the varsity basketball team at his high school and their team is phenomenally good this year. The goods news about that is that they are playing in a lot of playoff games this march. The bad news is that my son doesn't get a lot of playing time this year because the boys are so talented, he's no longer the star! Ah well, it's a great life lesson and he still loves the game and the team. We are encouraging him that his role this year is more a Rudy. For those that don't know the movie, it is about a young man with a passion for Notre Dame football. He goes to the school, makes the team but never gets playtime. His role is to work with the starters during practices to make the starters superstars. He accepts his role gladly and the team succeeds.
Eric is a junior this year so he may get a chance to shine next year. But the reason for that little story/diversion is that I won't have time to stamp tonight because we will be going to the big divisional playoff game tonight. We will face a team we have beat twice before but it's still a big game.
So, do you want to see the card?? Of course you do.
Do you want to play along with the challenge? Just make a card using peach, green and white. Load it on a blog or splitcoaststampers and then add your link below.
