   Its challenge time again over at friends of  SpeedyTV and the challenge this week is something I seriously need. VACATION. Oh yes! Its been ...thinking....8 years since I've went on vacation. AND that was was with my ex husband so I don't even think it counts haha.
  I would love to say this card was just easy peasy but I had nothing but trouble. See that beautiful bakers twine in the middle of knowhere? Thats covering a line of ink from where I droped the card on an open ink pad. oppppss. Anyways this card screams vacation to me because I love the ocean and I really want to go stay in a lighthouse. HINT HINT honey. The stamp set I used was Island Life from Marks Finest Papers, A Heinrich CO. Whats your vacation look like? Go show us by entering the challenge and you could win these adorable lil flamingos!

Pretty card and I know all about trouble making a card. I worked all afternoon making two cards and am throwing both into the garbage. From boo boos to just not liking them...wasted time for me. Ugh!
