Back to the ol' grindstone


Monday morning and back to work. I came so close to calling in sick today - I have such a bad headache, I didn't sleep well last night, so I'm really tired and it's just cloudy and gloomy out. It would be such a good day to stay home in sweats and read or watch tv and just be lazy. But, I was a good girl and came in. This card is for one of my bosses who's birthday is later this month. I used an inkadinkado image and made the "got cake?" sentiment with snap stamps. The paper is basic grey, real red and black. The ribbon, I got at walmart. I colored the image with copics and went over the cherry on the cupcake with a glaze pen to make it shiney.
This card is for my sister's birthday - I hope she's not reading this. I really doubt she is - she's VERY busy these days, but if so - don't look, Pam! My mom told me that Pam loves the afternoon tea dp, so I used it for her card with close to cocoa, groovy guava and soft sky. The image is from My Favorite Things Serenity Now. I paper pieced the background and that girls shirt. The sketch is one of Jen's SFYTT. I inked the edges with close to cocoa, cool carribean and cameo coral. The ribbon is american crafts.

Love the colors in this card; and the sentiment and image are perfect together. I've thought a couple of times about getting MFT stamps...will definitely have to keep that possibility open.
Your blog is great! Am going to add your link on mine, if that's ok!
