no bon voyage!

So our cruise got cancelled after all due to Hurricane Ike. Funny, though, how a completely unplanned week filled up in a matter of minutes once we knew we were going to be home after all! Nothing like trying to get back time you thought you had already lost...

I'm posting this card for Kristina Werner's 23rd color inspiration. I am so in love with this branch image from Eastern Blooms. If you don't already have it, WHAT are you waiting for?? The set is on SALE until the end of the month ($18.66+tax+shipping!). And shopping is so easy now...all you have to do is go to my Stampin' Up! Demo website and click "SHOP NOW" and shop! Of course, you are still more than welcome to shop the old fashioned way by calling me or sending me an email. : )

Anyways, I used markers to color directly onto the stamp. I do not have a marker for bravo burgundy so I used a blender pen to pick up the ink from my ink pad and applied it that way. Easy peasy. I mounted the image on old olive and used some more retired Au Chocolat paper. The ribbon is left over from a project from Neesha's wedding. She and Jeff are about to celebrate their one year anniversary and I still have oodles of that ribbon laying around! Must use it all!!

Gotta run for now. Savi is on a tirade over here. She's looking at one of the pictures from our wedding and is upset because she and Jaya aren't in the picture with us. Um, that's because you guys weren't born yet!! She didn't like hearing that so she's telling me how she's "going to broke your dress so you can never wear it again" (no worries, Sav, it's never going to fit again!) and that "it's too late for you to be married." She's a pistol, this one! And Jaya needs more milk. She's being very loud about it. I think Sach and I are going to try to watch a movie tonight. That is, if neither one falls asleep before the movie starts. Hope you all are having a good night...
