A Clean and Blue "Hi!"














   This trigger displays a beautiful room that has blues and whites with a touch of modern on the wall.  I love this room...so clean and perfect!  I actually stayed in a similar room while visiting friends.  My friend has a knack for class and her bedding had a blue and white flower design.  It was tastefully decorated and so CLEAN looking.  She and her husband were the perfect hosts...they gave up THEIR room, can you believe it?  Wow, talk about hospitality!  
  I was thinking of them while making this card...we haven't gotten together in awhile, and we only live a couple of hours from each other now!  We drove 8 hours to see them years ago, when they gave up their room.  Now, we just seem to get so caught up in who knows what.  I need to tell them at least "Hi!".  


Here is my "Hi"...



 
  I didn't have any blues to hit the trigger blues...

...which made me BLUE. :(   

LOL.   ;)


But, I had INK and a background stamp! I made squares to frame the corners.  See those gorgeous vases?  They are from my other FAVORITE ODBD stamp.  I am also entering this is in ODBD Stamping in Time 36.  I added that cool swirly thing to make the "Modern" point! 



Thanks for peeking in!


Recipe: ODBD You are the Potter, Rubber Stampede Signature Background, Staz On Ink, clear embossing powder, Sizzix flowers and leaves, Quickutz square, Sizzix square, Cuttlebug Embossing folder, Corner rounder, ISC Friendship for the sentiment
