365 Cards Day 44 & Color Throwdown #37


My oh my, I thought I was a night owl but the team at 365 Cards is just as late as me! As I mentioned in my very first 365 Card creation, I am very excited that I found a blog that has a different challenge EVERY SINGLE DAY!!! Where they come up with ideas, I have no clue but I definitely find this blog different than many of the others. The main difference for myself is most challenge blogs host a challenge once a week or once every other week. This gives procrastinators like myself a load of time to push it back and keep pushing until the time limit is up and Mister Linky is closed. The difference with 365 Cards is I don't have slack time to play around with!! If I don't muster up a card for that days challenge, I'll fall behind because there'll be a new one up the very next day!! And in this case, within the next 12 hours or so!! I feel like I'm in school where I can't miss a day because I'll fall behind and never be able to catch up! So that's why I'm up till the wee hours of 1 am just so I could finish my money holder! If you can't actually read what the sentiment says, here it is. The front says "
Shopping with your husband is like hunting with the game warden." And on the inside I typed up "Take this money instead and buy yourself something nice." and printed it on white cardstock. 

This card also used the colors of this week's Color Throwdown. Boy was it hard to just have the 3 colors to work with and all 3 colors were on the lighter side. 


Now I know you may all be thinking "TEN BUCKS?? What a cheapo!" I just want to say that I only used the $10 bill because of the color contrast!! A nice pink $50 would have looked great but I definitely don't have any of those floating around these days. Anywhooo off to bed! 


P.S. Thanks to all the ladies that stopped by from the 365 Card team and leaving such lovely comments. I can't wait to keep playing and being inspired by you gals!
