Oh my gosh, it's Wednesday evening already!  Lucky me, I spent the afternoon in my scrap area, mostly cleanign and organizing, but I was able to pull together two quick cards.  This one features Golfabella from Stamping Bella.  It's been a while since I inked up my Bella's and I almost forgot how much fun they are to work with.  I have a few more that I coloured last night, so they'll be popping up in cards over the next few weeks.  Why was I in my craft room and not at work?  The new washer and dryer were finally being delivered, and of course I can't be first on their list.  The delivery window as from 12 noon until 4pm and of course they came at 3:30pm...poor me, I had to tough it out in my scrap room!  LOL!

The sun was shining today, and the despite being cranky and overtired, the kids helped me clean the house a little this evening while hubby tired to get the new appliances hooked up (the washer is running a test cycle as I type this, but the dryer won't be completed until tomorrow after work).  Anyone with two little kids will know that after 8 days with no laundry facilities (thanks to my Mom for doing my one desperation load at her house on Monday) there is so much dirty laundry I'm not sure where to put it all right now.  I never in my life would have thought that I'd be looking forward to doing laundry...oh my!

My card will be entered into the following challenges:
The Color Dare:  Old Olive, Summer Sun, Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla
The Res-Q Challenge: Take a Mental Health Break (pastels and an image that makes you smile!)
Fab N Funky:  Get it all out (use something you've had my Bella stamp that hasn't seen daylight in over a year!)

Finally, a Happy Birthday shout out to my friend Allyson...who may be better looking than me, but now she's older!  LOL!  Hope you had a great day...the card is in the mail!  LOL!

What a great card! Love this image and the colours work beautifully together.
Glad you have sorted out the washer situation and good luck with operation laundry. I will think of you this evening as i try to iron my way out of an avalanche of ironing that needs doing before tomorrow when we head down to Oxford!
