Enjoy Life, DD#40 & CFC90



Happy Thursday!

It has been a funny week, I have been feeling like I am running to catch something but can't quite make it there.  I had my plan for this week's Dynamic Duos and CAS-ual Fridays challenge, I planned out ahead of time but here I am posting near the deadline for Dynamic Duos and I missed CAS-ual Fridays by 5 minutes.  After the morning I had today it is no wonder.

Then I take a step back and look at my card, I was pleased with the sentiment I chose for today's card but did I read it?  No matter what life throws at you, don't forget to enjoy it!  I think I did for a minute.  Have a great day.  J

Oh wow we must be chasing things together today Tracey! I don't know where this day has gone and I don't feel like I've gotten anything done. Stopped into blogland for a time out LOL!!

Cute card today, I love it when you use that balloon! Hope things slow down for you ~ hugs ;)

I know what you mean about running around to catch something but not making it. ;-) Sorry you missed the deadline for CAS-ual Fridays, but glad you got in for Dynamic Duos! Your card is perfect for this color challenge. I love the balloon and cloud arrangement and how nicely you colored the balloon. Very well done. ;-) Thank you for joining us at Dynamic Duos!

Ah...so sorry you missed it! This is awesome...the layout is incredible!

Jean said...

Fantastic sketch ~ I would have never thought to use the half & half die like this ~ I just love it!

Joyce said...

This is such a great card. What a cute way to color and use that hot air balloon. I like the balance of your card--your sentiment is perfectly off set by your balloon and die cut. Sorry about your morning, and also you missing the challenge deadline. I hate it when that happens.

What a lovely card!!

Sharron said...

Sorry you missed the challenge. LOVE your card--awesome layout and great use of the turquoise color!

Lindsey said...

I'm sorry that you had a hard morning! I LOVE LOVE this card. The layout is fantastic. You are so talented!

Brandi said...

This card is one of my favorite of yours. I love how you left most of the image white and added a touch of turquoise.

Laurie said...

Tracey this is so pretty! I love all the white and the pop of color!

Janet Zeppa said...

I love how the blue pops off the white! I totally know how you feel!

Oh, my, God, I start at the top and scroll down when I've missed a few days and each card is more stunning than the one before. How you don't win every challenge you enter is beyond me. Just beyond me. I'm so sorry you missed CFC by 5 minutes. I know it would have won, dang it. Anyway, your card is so fun and so CRISP. Seriously, do you use photo software that removes all the little pin dots of who-knows-what and gray shadows that always appear on my cards?? This is extraordinary, Tracey, really.

(I'm happy you "took a moment," cause you know I would have had to have a word with you about not obsessing and enjoying life! I MUST get that sentiment, don't you think, since that's like my motto my blog?!)

Christina Barnes said...

Gorgeous balloon, and I just love that sentiment! Thanks for sharing your card with us at Dynamic Duos.

Marybeth said...

I hear you......me too! Love ,love , love this perfect card Tracey!
Bummer about missing Cfriday by five min! I hope you are slowing down and enjoying the rest of your weekend.

The small banner of sky for your balloon and clouds makes such a big impact! And bummer that you missed the challenge by 5 minutes ... that happened to me last week. Not a great feeling! At least you had another challenge for this beautiful card.
