Midnights and Mad Men

Once again its 4am and I am wide awake. I tried to go to sleep, but after an hour of tossing a turning listening to my husband snore I decided to get up. My scraproom is calling my name!  I should sneak downstairs and finish the layout I started earlier today for the SUPER FUN cyber crop at Tallyscrapper, but Im afraid if I do I'll never get back to sleep. So here I sit  browsing pinterest, eating pretzels and watching Mad Men in the middle of the night.


 Im obsessed with Mad Men at the moment. I love it so much. Im halfway through season 4 and Im really going to HATE when I have to wait for episodes. Its amazing! The sets. The excessive drinking. The language.... and Oh my the clothes.....  Id love to own everything Joan wears..... and the dresses and nightgowns Betty gets to wear. So girlish and feminine. Why dont we get to dress like that anymore?  Sigh. It all reminds me of my grandparents.

A few days ago the new Some Odd Girl challenge came out . Almost like an art class refresher course.....This one is all about the COLOR WHEEL

Remember that?? The challenge is to use 2 COMPLIMENTARY colors (you know on opposites sides of the wheel) . You can use different shades of the colors.... but stick with those 2.

Here is my card using RED and GREEN (with shades of pink and lime) Its featuring School Mae digi stamp.

Im entering her into the following challenges.
Craft Us Crazy (anything goes)
Incy Wincy (old scenic route paper, NEW odd girl stamp)
4 crafty chicks (twine)
KB Cute Monday (anything goes)

Hello my old night time buddy I would love to be able to scrap at 3 or 4am while my husband snores too, but like you I settle for browsing pinterest for hours.
