Timeless Tuesday...use Yellow, Black & another color


Well it's time for another challenge at Flourishesand today the sweet and beeutiful Maki is telling us to use yellow, black, and another color. So since my New Year's resolution is not to be so ornery and not complain and be sweet...dang it, what goes with yellow and black nicely??? I came up with a sort of steel blue of some sort. Yea I know, quit complaining and do your card. I chose Flourishes wonderful sweetpeas and used my faithful water colored pencils and simply and very simply stamped, colored, used my Nestie rectangle cut, a bit of steel blue ribbon, and a few blingers. Voila ( that's French for like so there!). Oops a bit of ornery just slipped on by. Sorry. Honest I am very sorry but I have to tell you after my episode last night you can maybe understand my mean spirited attitude. I was getting ready for bed, and was very tired but knew I had to brusha brusha before jumping into bed so I pulled out the toothbrush and gel and started my nightly routine. I thought to myself ...man this toothpaste tastes really weird and when it started tasting really bad I looked down at the tube on the counter top to see...OMGosh. Preperation H Cooling gel. Yikes I frantically started rinsing and spitting and trying to figure out if I needed to call 911 or not. Let me tell you...DO NOT try this at home or anywhere else for that matter. Yucky! And further more I guess I will have to start my nightly routine a bit earlier so I'm a little more alert. You notice I said ...a "little" more alert. Well that's it fellow bloggers. Off to take a much needed nap. See you soon.

OMG!!! What a horrible experience THAT must have been!! LOL!!! It reminds me of years ago when 3 of us were attendants in a friend's wedding. Just back from getting our hair done, one of the girls decided we needed more hair spray and sprayed us all with PLEDGE before she realized she'd grabbed the wrong can! We attended the wedding with white beads of wax in our hair! LOL
Life is great sometimes huh? :)
Your card is gorgeous Pat and I never would have thought to pair blue with yellow/black, but this is stunning!! Nice job!!
Have your taste buds returned to normal yet???? Go ahead, let those words fly..........after that you deserve to cut loose:) {holding my ears here in PA}

Pretty card! You got me chuckling about a friend's camping adventure when his daughters were much younger. Seems he asked the older one to help the younger one brusha brusha. Only problem was the younger one had to rely on the older one READING the tube. She brushed with Itch Cream!?! Hope this isn't an indication of how your year will go...
