Thursday. That means half day for the kids. That means run around like a chicken with your head cut off for the Mom. It's 10:00 ... got coffee in, breakfast in, workout in (hate you Jillian Michaels!), now blog post ... then dog walk ... then tidy kitchen, super quick shower then off to the get the short people. Better crack on!
Today's card had me squealing with excitement! You can always tell how much of a card is *my own* by the level of excitement and decible (?) of squeal. This one was pretty high on both counts. I drew my inspiration from this card by Lyssa Griffin Zwolanek ...
I loved the colors! As usual I set out to copy it exactly ... but I wan't in a butterfly kind-of mood. So I started playing around. Here is the first card I made:
Nice ... but now I wanted to see what else I could do with the colors. Alicia (my official "opinionator") liked them so they MUST be awesome ... I thought I'd try the colors in a rainbow pattern ... and then it ALLLLL came together ... and I squealed ....
TRYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! pant, pant, pant ... ok ... see how crazy I get over these little things????? Breaaaaathe ... ok .... I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso. For unknown reasons I added 3 rhinestones. These confused Craig. He didn't *get it*. I do't get it either ... but they're pretty, so they're staying. Ha!
Of course after I made the card the rainbow song left my head and was replaced by *Let the Sunshine In* sung by none other than Pebbles Flintstone ... which I leave you with now so it can be stuck in your head too ... a little flashback for those of you who are my age :) Until next time, have a sunshiny day!!
