KCRR Meets Dynamic Duos

Hello there! It's nice to be back in blogger world! I had a break since last Friday, and after today's post and two tomorrow, I'll be on holidays until Monday! Woot woot! :) I am headed to the beautiful capital of BC, Victoria, to visit my mom for her birthday. I have been super busy the last few days preparing to go away. I don't like to leave a messy house, so I have been cleaning & organizing like crazy. This includes my car (aka travelling house *lol*) I also got around to tending to my parent's lawn at there home here... oh boy was it a mess! Since my parents are frequent travellers, they decided to hire a lawn company to tend to the grass this year (usually I mow it, but since I don't live there anymore, they decided to give me a break). Unfortunately, the lawn company has yet to show-up and this is what I am left with:

Over a foot tall THICK grass!! Gross!!! It was not fun to cut... and extra unfortunately, the lawn mower broke half-way through the cutting! *sigh* Hopefully the lawn company does show up to fix this mess... Anyways, I digress, onto the challenges! Charissa and I decided to play with KCRR a couple days early this week to accommodate my vacation, and I wanted to play along with the Dynamic Duos as well:

The selections for KCRR this week were: using the spritzer tool, river rock, and a third option this week, the blossom petal builder punch. Hmm what interesting selections! Now, I am not the biggest fan of river rock, but paired with the bold colours from Dynamic Duos, I think it looks nice! Here's what I came up with:

The spritzing is hard to see, as I used the river rock marker on top of the dark raspberry ripple petals. Here's a close up...

Overall, I am pleased with this card :) it will be my parent's anniversary card (which happens to fall on the same day as my mom's birthday, fancy that :) )

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to pop over to Charissa's blog, Snippets by Design, to see what she created with our KCRR elements. Tomorrow will be the new Inspired by... challenge, then it'll be a three week break as Charissa will be on vacation for two weeks and then I am gone again for a week! :)
