Tuesday Trigger 7-6-10

Ok ok. I confess. I stayed up wayyy past my bedtime last night to finish Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol. Hmmm, I dunno. I thought the author did a good job keeping the reader interested, but the ending left me wanting something more WHOA, not meh. I read through 500+ pages, I want a good ending...know what I mean?

Pleasant surprise at the office: Whoo hoo, the IT guys hooked me up with a new hands-free phone device for my work phone. I have at least 3-4 conference calls a week, and since I have an office roommate, sometimes I feel bad using the speakerphone when she's in the office. Occasionally, I just move to a different office to take the call or just take the call in my office, hoping my roommate will use her headphones if it gets too loud. I've recently had a problem with people not being able to hear me on the speakerphone even when I'm unmuted, but with this new hands-free device, all my phone related problems are now resolved. What a great way to start the work week! :)

I went to Moxie Fab World to check out their Tuesday Trigger, while my sister was picking out paper for today's card. I told her that the stamps were going to be enough for this card, which she picked out just before. I thought the picture was intriguing with the contrast of black and splashes of color. My sister picked out small stamps that I stamped in clusters in Charcoal ink, similar to the dark images in the picture. I tried to mimic the splashes of color with the larger floral stamp, popping up some while stamping some directly onto the white cardstock. I originally had clear rhinestones, but I thought the black ones would stand out more and also tie back to charcoal background. The finished card looks kinda modern artsy, don't you think?
