Doesn't this card just scream out SPRING!???  I love this layout from Mercy Kerin - MTSC47.  I used  distressing ink on the embossed paper again for this card and added a sprig of leaves with buttons - just like in nature - haha!!

Today a good friend and I are heading to LA to go see a taping of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson!!  I'm uber excited to go see his show!!  Being the night owl that I am, I rarely miss his show and he just cracks me up!  It should be interesting seeing how the only thing I am allowed to bring in to the CBS studio is myself, my ID, and the clothes on my back - which cannot be white or dirty or trashy or ripped or too revealing.  hahah!  I'm serious!  It says so on my ticket!

See you soon!

  1. Oh you lucky ducky! I LOVE Craig! Here in Japan, we get to watch him in the morning:) So it's usually on when I get ready for work! He is a GOOFY DUDE and I love him! Too bad you can't bring a camera! Do something crazy to make him pull you up on stage:D

  3. Gorgeous card. I love the colours. Who knew there were so many restrictions?!

  4. Sweet card.
    I'm so jealous of you being out in CA. AND you get to see CF, well I hope you have a non-thrashy outfit but if you don't make the cut remember to tell them "I've been kicked out of better places than this". LOL.

  5. Lucky you!!! Craig is the best - they need to replace Letterman with him so I don't have to stay up so late. I'm so jealous, I'd love to see him in person, he's gorgeous! I know you will enjoy it.

  6. Cute card. Love the different elements. Hope you have a good time at the show. To be honest I've never heard of him.

  7. Omgosh! Such a super gorgeous card!Great use of colors! I'm so jealous that you get to go see Ferg! He is just a hoot! Love him! Have a blast and so super fun to meet you!

  8. Oooh, I love the warm colors on this one. It just makes me think of a great day out in the desert. Have fun at the Late Late show tonight!

  9. Great colors and design, Karen!

    (The word verification I'm having to type is schwoo...makes me think of Angie Tieman.)

  10. LOVE this card Karen! Hope you had a blast at the show taping!!!

  11. Karen - so bummed I didn't get to see you to say good bye or to find out how the taping went! Hope you had a blast! We love Craig too!
