Even if you want to?!?   The first time I read this sentiment I thought that maybe, in someone’s past, there might be a year or two they wouldn’t mind forgetting (losing)! But, really, I do love the sentiment.

The card plays in four challenges this week:

Simon Says Monday: Blues

Color Throwdown #274

Addicted to Stamps and More #77: Markers

Crazy for CAS #35: Chevrons

This card is for my brother-in-law whose birthday is coming up next week.  His favorite color is red.  So even though the color challenges didn’t call for it, a little touch of red just had to be included!

Happy Crafting!
