I have a cute card and a fun story to share with you today.
First things first, my card... I used Doodle Pantry's Garden Hose Ants in the pre-colored version, sized and printed it to fit the card layout I wanted to use (I love that about digital stamps!) and got busy. The layout is a sketch I've used before and really liked and could picture in my mind the finished card, I love it when that happens too.
The cardstock colors are Via Vellum Black, Mohawk Bright White, Sorbet Lemon, Stampin' Up Brilliant Blue. For the dots on the Brilliant Blue I used a stamp from Papertrey Ink. The sentiment is cut out using Spellbinders Mega Ovals and Scalloped Mega Ovals dies.
My card is for our newest Midweek Throwdown challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps, the challenge theme is "water".
And now for the funny story-
Last Saturday my husband was watering the grass in our yard and had to leave for a few minutes. Maxine our dog was outside and I was inside at my desk when I heard a strange sound. I got up to look out the window and discovered the hose and sprinkler at the front door spraying the front window and door. I also realized that for me to do something about this I was going to get really wet!
So I opened the front door and ran out to pick up the sprinkler and hose to put it back in the grass. Luckily it was around 105 outside so I dried pretty fast.
Maxine thought I'd come out to play too...
I did go back in the house for my camera
and then she picked up the hose again and ran toward me!
But stopped to play with the sprinkler a little more
and then ran toward me again as I ran away trying to keep my camera dry! lol
It's really too bad we didn't get this all on video, but I still laugh looking at the pictures and remembering. I suppose that's entertainment in a small town in Arizona!
I hope you enjoyed my story, Doodle Pantry card and will play along in our "water" themed challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps this week!
