[DYSU] Challenge #44 - Teal

This is one of those weeks where I am counting my lucky stars to be on the road and enjoying living in a hotel. Well, one can't complain too much if it's the Sheraton, since they have pretty good housekeeping and comfy beds, not to mention I almost always get an upgrade. The internet is still out at my house, and I was told that it would take 5-7 days for Comcast to fix it. Since the internet has been out since Saturday, it will make it a whopping 9-11 days in a row with no service. That's a significant percentage of a month and their service is not cheap. *Le Sigh*

So please bear with me if you aren't getting comments or if I seem MIA. In the meantime we have a new challenge at DYSU to tie you over. All things Teal is what we're looking for...

We are sponsored by a personal favorite of mine: The Craft's Meow. When I heard of this news I was squealing with glee. In fact, good thing no one was home to witness the oh-so-very-embarrassing girlie display. I was sent a sweet little stamp set called Little Frieda & Lulu - Mischief, which I actually already have in my stash. So, guess what? Leave a message telling me which one of The Craft's Meow stamp set if your favorite and why and I will pull a random comment to give away my extra Little Frieda & Lulu - Mischief! Just because... ;) Shall we give this a week or so before I draw a winner?

For a Friend
Stamps: (Little Frieda & Lulu - Mischief) The Craft's Meow
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Kraft, Vintage Cream) Papertrey Ink
Ink: (Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Vintage Photo, Antique Linen); (Memento - Tuxedo Black) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Mister Huey - Lunch Tray) Studio Calico; (6x6 Template - Mini Flower Frenzy) The Crafter's Workshop; (Stella & Rose Decorative Trims - Mabel "Little Lady" Trims) My Mind's Eye; (Border Punch - Apron Lace) Fiskars

My inspiration and starting point is actually from the current TCM sketch. It's a fun one, isn't it?

If you squint you can tell that I moved the scalloped edge into the card frame itself and moved the trim to the bottom. I tried oh so hard to put a bow and tag in but the card got so cluttered and I really wanted the Mister Huey and my new template to take full effect. So I left it off, and am truly hoping the TCM girls can still see the sketch inspiration in this lil darling card.
