One-Layer Wednesday #134

At the office: AHHHHHH!  I hear this from the kitchen this morning, and I knew instantly what had happened.  I slowly creep out into the hallway and the institutional research director, clearly shaken up, says "There's a mouse in the dishwasher!"  What is this, Groundhog's Day?  This is not the first time this has happened.  I hope that the exterminator that they sent this afternoon was able to remedy the situation.

RJ: The cat has been a terror at night lately.  He sleeps quite peacefully between 12 and 3 AM and then I think he feels rested enough to want to play and romp around or find something to chew on.  The whole situation reminds me of the book Go the F*** to Sleep.  I don't like kicking him out of my bed or bedroom, but I've been doing that the past few nights just so that I can get some peaceful sleep.  I hear bonk bonk bonk at the door.  I'm thinking he's using his paw or his head to try to get in, but doesn't really understand that those tactics are not going to work.  He eventually gives up and when I open the door in the morning, he's right outside waiting for me.  He got his revenge this morning by sleeping on my pillow while I was at work.  Usually, I cover my bed before going to work, but I was in rush this morning.  Jerk.

One-Layer Wednesday #134:  It's been quite a while since I've done a one layered card, but when I saw the challenge this afternoon, an idea came to me when I was at spin class tonight.  This is not to say that I wasn't paying attention during class or didn't get a good workout because I was very sweaty afterwards!

Here's the challenge:
We all know that 3 is the magic number in design and architecture. So our challenge for this week is to use as many threesomes as you can. A threesome can be any group of 3 things - you could stamp 3 of the same image, use 3 different stamps or colours - wherever your imagination takes you!
I bought this Hero Arts lamp stamps on clearance a few months ago, so I decided to stamp the 3 lamps in 3 different colors. The lamps and the sentiment stamp go together perfectly, don't you think? 
Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Warm Red, Yellow Citrus, Ocean
Stamps: Hero Arts- Decorative Lamps, Studio G (sentiment)
Punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper
Other: Staedtler Triplus Fineliner

This is a fantastic cheery OLW card - love the bright colours you've used and that doodled 'stitching' to create a frame!
