PPC-CC #2 & FTL 80

Yay!! I'm actually posting before midnight! That's a huge accomplishment! I must say, setting up my crafting station in front of the television has REALLY helped me with my crafting. There have been so many nights where I've laid on the couch growing eyes like a potato. Then one night I realized I could craft AND watch TV at the same time! It's been working out great so far, except for those nights where I don't even have time to watch TV! Now I spent today's TV watching session creating a card for Picture Perfect Creations Color Combo #2 and I combined it with Clean & Simple's Fall to Layout #80

I had leftover Old Olive DSP laying around from a workshop that I had a couple weekends ago and was trying to find a use for it. I know my card doesn't match the sketch completely but I got to use up 2 sheets of my scraps! Three cheers for using up scraps! When I first stamped the main image, I was planning on coloring with some blender pens but then had an even better idea! 
I stamped everything out a couple times and cut out each piece and popped them up with some dimensionals. I think it turned out great! And to top it all off, I used even MORE scraps. The only thing that wasn't scrap was the main Soft Suede card base! Now that definitely deserves a pat on the back. 

Now before I sign off, I wanted to let you know what show I was watching tonight! Other than my beloved Criminal Minds (which has got me dreaming some pretty sick stuff), I'm totally hooked on Showcase's Drop Dead Diva. It's a show about how this skinny model "Deb" dies in a car accident, gets up to heaven and refuses to "die" so pushes a button and gets sent back to earth in a size 16 "Jane". I'm not sure why I'm hooked. It may be because I think the main character "Jane" is absolutely gorgeous or maybe because I really want "Jane" to hook up with "Deb's" boyfriend. He has really quite handsome and he's super sweet. I'm always such a sucker for love stories where the characters that should be together aren't and I just wait and wait to see if they finally make it back together. I think that's why I got hooked onto The Office with Jim and Pam (who by the way, are having their baby on this Thursday's episode!!!). Have a good night and boy, I think my photos are looking better! Always a plus!
