Happy Days - H2H Challenge card

Happy Monday! Today we bring you a new challenge at Heart 2 Heart Challenges (H2H). This week is all about (shhh) Guilty Pleasures (shhh). It is time to own our quirks and what our guilty pleasures are. For me this was a challenging challenge. I have a lot of guilty pleasures and could not really decided what to do, then I was going to do a top 10 list of my guilty pleasures and I just could not figure out how to make it into a scrapbook page so I decided to make a card with my biggest guilty pleasure...TV! I really love TV all kinds of TV but if we really want to talk about guilty pleasures I will go out on a limb and admit to being a HUGE reality TV junkie. There it is, I am a reality TV junkie. Here is a list of a few of my current reality TV indulgences:
  1. Real Housewives of Orange County
  2. Real Housewives of New York
  3. So you think you can dance
  4. Dance Moms
  5. Sister Wives
  6. My 5 Wives
  7. 19 Kids and Counting
  8. Wahlburgers (goes hand in hand with my NKOTB obsession!)
  9. Return to Amish
  10. Gyspy Sisters, My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding, etc. 
  11. Ice Road Truckers
  12. Duck Dynasty
  13. Highway Thru Hell
  14. Border Security
  15. Beyond Scared Straight
  16. Tackle my reno
  17. Property Brothers
  18. Love it or List it
  19. Long Island Medium
  20. Who do you think you are?
Ok, so I think you all get it, I am a Reality TV JUNKIE! I do like dramas and sitcoms too, 

Now onto my project, I made this card to represent my love of TV...reality TV and how it reminds me of simpler times. 

While trying to figure out what to do for this challenge I kept thinking of this old fashioned TV stamp I had and it kept popping into my mind. It reminds me of how TV has changed and really not for the better. I know reality TV is trashy and sensational for the most part but it is what I watch when scrapping the day / night away as I do not need to give it my undivided attention, it just kind of runs in the background.

TV is one of my guilty pleasures that I do not get to enjoy very often! With 4 kids, the only time to watch TV and actually get to hear it is after they go to bed and that's my stamping time! I have so many dvr'd shows I need to catch up on it's pitiful! CUTE card!

Wondeful card- love the monochromatic browns as it reminds me of older TV shows. I have found it hard to find time to sit down and watch TV this month but I am missing out on some of the new series starting up!
