Challenge # 1

Ah, Monday--the start of a new week!  This is a good one for me, however, as Liz's spring break starts on Friday.  Grandpa does not have vacation time, so he suggested that Liz and I take a vacation without him.  Without much persuasion, we agreed.  We fly to Fort Lauderdale on Friday, and board a cruise ship on Saturday for a one-week Caribbean vacation.  Liz envisions days packed full of fun--staying busy in the teen program on the ship.  I envision sitting by the pool, reading, maybe having a fou fou drink--and doing nothing!  I think we will both be happy.  I made a lot of cards over the weekend, in between cooking for the company we had today.  First card is from and is from one of the newer lines called Critter Balloons--Mouse.  I used three different types of designer paper, Papertrey and SU cardstock, pink brads, my square nestabilities, and colored this image with copics. 

This card will be entered into two challenges:
Challenge was to use 3 papers, 2 brads, and one embellishment.
Challenge was to use 3 of something (paper), 2 of something (brads), and 1 of something (embellishment--ribbon)
