Just for You

Monday again, my friends! It's been a great start to a brand new week. Weather is good and all is peaceful at home. We had a busy weekend: the European H.O.G. Rally 2012 came to town and it was a blast! 3 days of fun fun fun. I've included a link if you're interested in knowing more about HOG events (something porcine? LOL). I don't usually enjoy riding around with a bunch of other bikers and do it only as a show of support for what I consider to be another of Conan's caveman recreational pursuits. And since this year the Rally is practically in our back yard, we took Snoopy with us, and she had on her pink helmet! Too cute! I hesitate to admit it, but I did enjoy my myself this year. Harley's are loud, very loud. Add to that chaos 3 nights of loud concerts by several tribute bands - ABBA, Elvis, Led Zeppelin etc ... oh my wars are still ringing!  Time to wind down and make a card! Here's my take on this week's MojoMonday #246 sketch. For inspiration I turned to the photo below from the June WaltzingMouse Blog Party. 
WMS June Blog Part Photo Inspiration

The papers are from Papermania's Capsule Collection by Tina Higgins. By my standards this is clean and simple card. (Yes, you're right in thinking that I have no idea what CAS is all about!)
For my pop of colour, I chose orange buttons topped with turquoise coloured crystal flowers and adhered them on to the smallest of the Spellbinders Labels 16 die cut. 
The sentiment is from WMS Compact Sentiments, Versamarked, heat embossed on to a larger Labels 16 die cut.  A sheer bow puts an end to my incessant fiddling!
On the inside added a length of orange ribbon for some oomph. 

Thanks for dropping by. I'm going to sit back and relax...maybe (read: definitely) grab another brownie. Hope to see you soon!
