It's Friday!

This week has gone so fast - being a short one, thank goodness! I'm so looking forward to the weekend. I'm tired of dealing with stuff and trying to work along with everything else. We finally got our hot water heater fixed. So, I went to do a load of laundry last night - washing machine didn't work. This happened the other day and I checked the fuses because and couldn't get it to work, so called an electrician. It turned out it was a fuse - in a different fuse box that I didn't even know about and I've lived in this house for 10 years! So, now it's not working again and I called the electrician out again because there has to be some reason that the fuse is blowing. He's on his way to look at it now and I may have to replace the fuse box. Lovely - more stamping money down the drain!

So, here's the card I made last night instead of doing laundry. I used this week's sketch challenge and color challenge. And, I used my new crafty secrets A Bug's Life stamps. This little guy reminds me of Willy Wonka - the Gene Wilder version. I think it's the top hat. Anyway, I think he's so cute! I cheated a little and used close to cocoa for the card base because I didn't have enough paper of any of the colors. I used my cuttlebug to emboss the sage layer and then inked it with sage, too. I'm not sure who makes the dp - maybe my minds eye - I'm pretty sure I got it at hobby lobby. I haven't put a sentiment on yet. I will probably just put it inside the card because I kind of like the card the way it is.

This is SO cute! I agree on the Willi Wonka but it also reminds me of Jiminy Cricket from Pinocchio too!
