LoveFest 2013

Hi all, as you read this I hope to be peacefully sleeping off 2 redeye flights in 48 hours in my own bed.

My grandpa passed away last week, so that turned my sister's bridal shower into: big shower for 19 people at my house>get on a plane 10 hours after that>layover in Phoenix>then to Chicago>one night there>then back to Denver (through Phoenix again of course, nothing can be simple when you need it to be, I'm finding!) My flight is scheduled to land 1230am on Tuesday morning. The truth is though, headache/hassle or whatever, I just knew I needed to be there. I knew that if I didn't go, I would always regret it. Sometimes we have to do something difficult, particularly if it's unmistakably right.

And, this is TOTALLY right, so I'm not complaining really. Since hubby had surgery a mere two weeks ago, I am still just really tired and typing this before I've even left town for all this adventure, so I'm sure that won't improve soon. Thank goodness for being able to schedule posts or I wouldn't "be here" at all! Anyway, I am sorry I haven't been around much, the last two weeks have been crazy, oy. I hope to be back to craftiness real soon, and my sister's shower was really unique and fun, and I've got lots of pics to show you soon!

It is LoveFest 2013 over at Splitcoaststampers! Today is TCP Day, and we have a really fun challenge, it's an inspiration challenge, check it!:

I LOVE these colors, they are so "now" and fun, and Spring-like! I am sooooo ready for Spring, how about you? I've always loved yellow, it's such a happy color. Here's my card:
I took off the texture of the pavestones in the middle photo, then of course the yellow, gray, black, and the way the patterns play off each other inspired me to use a few different text-print papers to play off each other. I used The Mustache Set, and the following CutUps: Mustaches, and Circus Panels.

That is all for me today! If you can play along with us at Splitcoaststampers, please use keywords TCP and LOVEFEST2013F, I hope you can! :)

xo, Noelle

Love your card! I sorry for your loss (and you're right - it's often the things you didn't do that you later regret). Hope you're able to slow down & rest up a bit soon!
