Hats Off To You!

I missed the last Lawnscaping Challenge and was determined not to let another one slip by me.  Challenge #7 is:
                                                   
I took my idea from the name of a Lawn Fawn stamp set - Hats Off To You.  It has all sorts of cute little chapeaux and I pictured them all being flung into the air in celebration.  The colour combo is from ColourQ #77 which is a few weeks old but I really liked the colours and never got around to making a card at the time.

Supplies: CS: SU & Bazzill; Stamps: Lawn Fawn; Inks: SU Pear Pizzazz & VersaFine Onyx Black
It was a busy weekend for us with no crafty time for Jen.  *Pout*  On Saturday morning we helped my friend, Katy, some more in her new apartment.  We pulled up lots of nasty old carpet and cleaned up the floors.  In the afternoon we worked in our yard - mowing, weed whacking, etc.  I actually really like mowing the lawn.  It's one of those "instant gratification" jobs and that fresh mown grass smell is divine!  Sunday we took the hounds for a long swim and then went to visit my Uncle Michael and his new puppy, Rufus.
 How cute is that guy??  (And the puppy is adorable too...  Tee hee!)
