TGIF



Ugh - this week has seemed so long. The days have seemed like weeks. I'm glad it's almost over. I'm really tired and kind of cranky, although I've been trying to talk myself out of it. I was sick last night. We had a frozen lasagne, my best bud since 2nd grade filled my freezer up with convenience foods after my surgery and it has been a blessing not to have to make a huge effort to get dinner on the table. However, I went into my studio last night and after stamping and coloring for just a little while I began to feel really nauseated. So, I gave up and went to the living room to sit and sip some cold water. About that time Gage came downstairs and said he felt "kinda barfy". He asked if he could have a soda and I agreed and asked him to bring me one, too. That helped a little, but by 9:00 I was sleeping and by 10:00 I was in bed, so I didn't get any cards done last night. But, I forgot to post yesterday, so I'll post those cards!
Doesn't this kitty just look so proud of herself?? If she's anything like my kitties it's probably because she managed to single-pawedly tear down the curtains again. This card is for SC190 and mother mark's teapot tuesday #8. I bought the paper that I thought went with the teapot at hobby lobby. I added the ribbon and had planned on doing a ribbon blossom ala 4Hounds at SCS, but I didn't have enough cream and black ribbon to do one. Something to add to my list! So, The kitty is just sitting in the middle of this simple card, which I happen to like alot!

I made this card for Mother Mark's Tpot Tuesday #7 (trying to get caught up on those from when I was out of commision) and the CC180 at SCS. I used Chocolate Chip as my neutral for my base and layered using, ruby red, cuttlebugged. The DP is Basic Grey Blush layered with close to cocoa. I used my MFT Here's the Scoop for the image and the sentiment. All the layers are inked with coordinating colors. The gingham ribbon, I've had forever - isn't it cute. I thought I was done and then I decided to ticket punch the corners and add the pearls, add the flowers and finally add the spoon.
