A woman's prerogative

As I mentioned yesterday, I spent most of this evening at the Itasca Community Library book sale. Unfortunately, we didn't get the turnout we normally get on a preview night, which means we're going to have to sell that many more books over the next three days to meet our last year's totals. The good news is that the low turnout means there are a ton of great book left, so if you're looking for some summer reading on a budget, stop on by!
I know I was going to post the final punch brunch project tonight, but when I came home and looked at it again I didn't like it. It just didn't seem fiesta-worthy, especially when I placed it next to the other cards to take a group photo. So I went back to the drawing board and my punches to come up with something a little more inspirational and unique. And I came up with this card. It's kind of unique, at least in the way I used the square steps corner punch, but it's also kind of plain and so very pink! I like it, but like the other card, I don't think I like it enough. Hopefully when I head into the stamp room tomorrow I will come up with something truly spectacular, or at the very least something I can be happy to share with my cinco the mayo brunch guests. Have a great night!

This is a fabulous card and the colors certainly remind me of cinco de mayo.

Sorry to hear about the turnout at the library - May be you can advetise on Craig's List, Meet Up and post on SCS?
