Too Much Nightlife

Having a bit of a slow start today. Last night we went to the Triple-A Home Run Derby in Salt Lake City and had a fabulous time - Beer, peanuts, popcorn, hot dogs, live band, some incredible hits and a spectacular fireworks show. Got to watch a high school junior slam the ball right out of the park and take second place after the Pro.  Actually, if you add up his Home Runs from all 3 rounds, he hit more HRs total than the League Players did and only lost the Derby by 2. By the time the fireworks were over and we got to the car it was getting pretty late and once we got home we had dogs to take out and chickens to lock up etc. and it took me a while to settle down. Needless to say, I didn't get much sleep before it was time to get up, let out the dogs, open the chicken coop, feed the cats and take out the trash barrels and I don't do mornings at the best of times.

Today's card was made for my friend Kim and her husband's Anniversary. I used a new Verve set I had just gotten along with some PTI that hadn't seen ink yet as well as a StampinUp embossing folder that was still in the package.

Colors used are Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, Soft Suade, Certainly Celery and Always Artichoke all by StampinUp. Also by StampinUp is the ribbon and Tulip Border embossing folder Stamps are Verve's Bloom and Grow with the matching dies, PTI's Mat Stack 3 and Love Birds with their matching dies. 

Til next time...
