It's a berry good life...

Isn't it? I know most of my stateside friends are saying "WHAT? IT's 30 below outside!" Well, not here in Okinawa, it's still in the 70's during the day, then it cools off to a chilly 60 at night:)



Well you really came here to see a card, so I'll shush with the small talk! Today is Monday and that means the girls and I have a Monday Challenge card to share! We decided to go with a theme of "Thank You" since Christmas is coming up and we'll all need Thank You cards! Well I had every intention of creating a Thank You card using this weeks CAS challenge on SCS. I got the color challenge part right, but we all know I'm no CAS stamper so the actual Clean and Simple theory behind CAS doesn't always *ever* play out for me, lol!
I like to add a button here, add some bling there, sponge this, and punch that, ha! It's okay, I've come to grips with the fact that I'll never be CAS or fit my cards in a regular envelope. I'm fine with that.

Card base is Dark Chocolate and the dp is from the Green Tea Leaves dp by PTI! I can't get away from this paper, I love it so much! The strawberry stamp is from Berry Good Life by Unity and will be available in January after CHA! The sentiment is from Dawn McVey's Signature Greetings set by PTI.

Check out the rest of the Monday Chicks for some more Thank You inspiration!

My friend and I were recently discussing about how involved with technology our daily lives have become. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory drops, the possibility of uploading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about every once in a while.
