I sure am glad I didn't get a chance to share the 2nd card with you yesterday.  My stamping time was spent cleaning up messes.  One large mess was created by yours truely and no, it's not completely tidy, more to be done.  One equally large mess was created by a 7th grade gremlin that needed "locker bling".  Ok, it was completely adorable but in true gremlin fashion, "cleaned-up" is only slightly less messy than a total disaster.  The third mess was created by a two year old imp that got into a ribbon jar and now ribbons are strewn from one end of the cottage to the other!  That's on the list for today.  So I got NO stamping done yesterday and the forecast today is unknown!  Hopefully my swap cards will arrive today and I can share those as well.  But here's yesterday's other card.  Quick, clean and simple.  I almost feel that the Old Olive needs to be cut up a bit….or another layer added.  Any ideas?  Help me bling my card.  Perhaps I'll bring it back to the drawing board for another go round.  Help me out, readers!
