A Day Late And Dollar Short...Again!

Seeing that I have somehow missed a day and the February Papertrey Ink Blog Hop has passed me by, I, accompanied by myself, will have our own little Blog Hop here on my site.  I made this card  Thursday Australia time too, which was Wednedsay US time and photographed and neatly tucked the card on my desk in plenty of time to have it all Inlinkz-ed for the hop.  Go figure? *Still scratching my head wondering where my missing day went?*  But alas, best laid plans...  Hopefully, someone will stumble by and have a look at my February PTI Blog Hop offering even though I seem to have found myself a day late and a dollar short.  Ya gotta laugh!

What a fun card. I love the colors and the sentiment. It is funny how time can get away from us. Glad that you shared anyway.

Jen, this is wonderful - look at all that eye candy... so many great elements at which to look, and yet you still tied them all together with their colors. Wonderful masterpiece! :)

I had to laugh when I saw your post. I have a hard time with those time/date conversions myself. Love your card - I'm a fan of matstack 3 too. Sorry I missed the announcement about you joining the Post Its (talk about dreaming a week away!) but a big southern hemisphere welcome to you :)

I love the look of this card, Jen! Kinda vintage, kinda bold, kinda Tim Holtz! Love how you stamped the big sentiment in RED so it pops with that awesomely layered flower! FAB "Hop of One" card, heeee! PS...Love your new avatar!
