Im a little behind...Unity Addict challenge 14

Good morning!
Hip Hop is today because of the holidays! Dont miss it!! Click here after 10AM CST. Find the hip hop thread.
Unity Addicts challenge was from Carole tuesday, a thankful card using red and white.

Here is my card using Unity Tea Time Toile bg stamp.

I also attempted the color challenge, I didnt have very vanilla so the color ended up being a close color to kraft.
have a wonderful holiday season!
Till Later!
Someone slap me out of my Twilight trance! I have never been so engrossed by any books ever! I have read all four books in a matter of hours each! Stephanie Meyer you are brilliant!

never think sung by Rob Pattinson

I should never think What's in your heart What's in our home So I won't You'll learn to hate me But still call me baby Oh love So call me by my name And save your soul Save your soul Before your to far gone Before nothing can be done I'll try to decide when She'll lie in the end I ain't got no fight in me In this whole damn world So you hold off She should hold off It's the one thing that I've known Once I put my coat on I know its all wrong She standing outside holding me Saying oh please I'm in love I'm in love Girl save your soul Go on save your soul Before it's too far gone And before nothing can be done Cause without me You got it all So hold on Without me you got it all So hold on Without me you got it all Without me you got it all So hold on Without me you got it all Without me you got it all So hold on

Paramore - decode lyrics

How can I decide what’s right, when you’re clouding up my mind? I can’t win your losing fight all the time. Not gonna ever own what’s mine, when you’re always taking sides. But you won’t take away my pride. No, not this time. Not this time. How did we get here, when I used to know you so well? But, how did we get here? Well, I think I know how. The truth is hiding in your eyes, and it’s hanging on your tongue. Just boiling in my blood. But you think that I can’t see what kind of man that you are; if you’re a man at all. Well, I will figure this one out on my own. (I’m screaming, “I love you so.”) On my own. (My thoughts you can’t decode.) How did we get here, when I used to know you so well? (Yeah.) How did we get here? Well, I think I know how. Do you see what we’ve done? We’ve gone and made such fools of ourselves. Do you see what we’ve done? We’ve gone and made such fools of ourselves. How did we get here, when I used to know you so well? (Yeah, yeah, yeah!) Well, How did we get here when I used to know you so well. I think I know... I think I know... There is something I see in you. It might kill me. I want it to be true.
