Charlene made me do it!!

Yep, it's time for another CCEE challenge and Charlene (LilLuvsStampin - SCS) challenged us to use a restaurant coaster on our card. YIKES!! This was definitely a challenge. No buzzer for me!! Woot!! I used an authentic coaster from a Red Robin restaurant. It had a different text in the window, so I created my own message with my Inkadinkado upper case peg letters.

If you'd like to see what the other girls came up with, click HERE.

My son is a freshman in college 1,000 miles away, and I had never texted until he left. I find he's much more willing to *talk* via this method, so I've adjusted. I'm getting pretty good too...*grin* I think he's getting a bit home sick (although he'll never admit it) so I thought I'd send him a card letting him know I'm so proud of him. He just swam in his first college swim meet and took a second in both events (100 fly and 200 fly) He lost the 100 by only .02 of a second. And I missed it...*sniff* Hopefully I'll get to see him compete soon.

The card is pretty basic. This awesome dp is Granola (Basicgrey)!! It's perfect for a masculine feel. I framed it with Kraft (Prismatics) cardstock, and ink distressed all the edges with Frayed Burlap (Ranger Distress Ink) To finish it off, I added the largest Black Pearls (Kaisercraft)...just as long as he doesn't realize he has pearls on his card....*grin* They just look like shiny brads don't they?
