Give Peas a Chance!

I'm declaring this week on the ol' blog "Hambo Week"! Why, you ask? Well, for a few reasons: 1) Because I love Hambo Stamps, they always make me giggle 2) During July, 15% of all Hambo sales will be donated to a special cause - July is nearly over so you need to get crackin' on your purchases! and 3) Because I am the world's biggest procrastinator and waited until the end of the month to make my DT samples!!! Three pretty darn good reasons, wouldn't you say? ;-)
Today's card was made with Lauren's Dare to Get Dirty challenge in mind over at Splitcoast. I know I've been on quite a green kick the last few posts - I promise you tomorrow's card will not be green! But I love green so it's the first color I think of when asked to go monochromatic! Today's greens are Wild Wasabi and Certainly Celery. Hmm. Both food related! That fits this post more than I thought. I just love punny sentiments like this, they make me chuckle. And this one immediately made me think of the first time Carter tried eating peas! He was NOT impressed... Doesn't this face just say it all? C'mon Carter, give peas a chance!! LOL. I'm happy to report that as a two year old, they are now one of his favorite veggies. :-) My card is pretty self-explanatory. I used polka dots and scallops. Again. I'd say tomorrow's card won't have polka dots or scallops too, but I'd probably be lying... ;-) Ok, time to go and see what the munchkins are up to - Happy Monday and have a great week!
