Now I'm banging on the door of an angel...the end of fear is where we begin...the moment we decided to let love in...

Gooooood morning, my friends! How's life treating you this week so far? We're doing great at the Teubner Haus, just trying to stay healthy!

I sat down for a few minutes in my craft room last night, and my mojo went crazy...I finally (at a wee hour I will not disclose *wink*) forced myself leave my ideas on my desk and go to bed. Hopefully they'll still be there when I come back.

Sankari's Viva La Verve Sketch from Friday was calling to me, and I noticed that today's Color Challenge on Splitcoast was already posted when I got started, so I thought I'd play along. I chose some "vintage" Verve...Bountiful Backgrounds and Thankful Blossoms. When I pulled out the colors Betty selected, I have to admit...I thought she had lost her mind. But lookie:



Can you believe it? Soft Suede, Elegant Eggplant, and Riding Hood Red are actually gorgeous together! That's why I love the Splitcoast challenges...you discover things you never would have tried before!

So I just typed up instructions and my computer froze. Nice. So I'll have to come back later and try again, ok? Please forgive me. If you have a question you can always email me, ok? In the meantime, enjoy a closer look at the details of my card. *wink*



I hope you have a fabulous day...I'll see you again soon!!
