"Something New"



I made this card for the A Muse Challenge: "Something New". The challenge was to use a "new to you" A Muse or Saltbox Studio stamp. I finally got the A Muse couch and Lamp (can't believe I didn't already own these!) so I decided to have some fun with them. I'm not really a girly-girl and can't imagine having a pink couch but my daughter sure could! I flocked the pink pillow to make it look fluffy and used a black Spica pen on the other one for the some sparkle. I also used a clear Spica pen on the lamp and dangles. My daughter would love to have this in her room! The challenge is good for the entire month so head over to the A Muse Lounge and check it out.

On a personal note, my family was the victim of a hit & run on friday night. My hubby and kids were on their way home from ski/snowboard lessons when they got a flat tire. They were pulled off to the side of the road to change it when someone side-swiped them and drove off! Luckily nobody was hurt but they were pretty shaken up! Someone called in the license plate of the car but we haven't heard whether anyone has been arrested or not. I just cannot imagine how that person could sleep at night not knowing if anyone was hurt, not to mention the damage to our vehicle. I am so thankful my family was in a big 4x4 truck! The insurance company is coming to look at the damage tomorrow and I'm scared to find out how much it's going to be. Besides the deductible I guess we're going to need some new tires......*sigh*

Your card is wonderful and I always like the pink and black combination. It is even more wonderful that no one in your family was hurt!! I don't understand people who do things like that (hit and run). Again, I am just glad your family is safe and uninjured! How scary!
