Tuesday Trigger 6-22-10

Anna's 1-hour spin class was tough yesterday, so I decided to take a break today (ok, ok, it was also because I took a nap after work). After class last night, I asked her if she was teaching tomorrow night, as indicated on the special events calendar in the front lobby. She was a little confused when I asked her because it turns out that she wasn't teaching tomorrow! Good thing I checked with her. Otherwise, I'd be hurrying over tomorrow night expecting a spin class and then being sadly disappointed. I promptly informed Cute Gym Front Desk Guy that the calender needed to be corrected.

I wandered over to Moxie Fab World today to see what their Tuesday Trigger would be. It was an adorable black/red/yellow hibiscus halter top! I used the same color scheme and flowers in today's card. The criss-cross pattern was the toughest part for me because I had to stamp two bars of it. The first time, the lines just didn't match up and then on the second try (on the flip side of the same piece of cardstock), the part where the first and second bar touch was more pronounced than the rest of the image. Solution: cover most of it up! It saves having to use another piece of cardstock that way. I was happy to have a red brad in my crafty stash. Its presence makes the card less flat and was a nice finishing touch. :)
