Baby Card

Hi Friends! You're not going to believe this but I haven't stepped into my craft room since Wednesday. I think it's a record for me! LOL! I did step in but only to straighten things out a bit because my room was a mess. My husband took two days off from work and we hung out and did things like eat out, shop, and basically hung out. It's hard to craft when there's family stuff going on. Even something as mundane as watching TV. This is going to sound terrible but there's days when I'm on my laptop in the kitchen commenting on other people's blog and my husband would be talking to me for 15 minutes and when he stops talking, I just realized I did not hear a word he said. Later I'll ask him a question and he'll say, "I spent 10 minutes talking to you about it".. .I'm like "you did?". Terrible. I gotta stop that because he'll just stop talking to me all together! LOL!


I created this card a few weeks ago. It's one of my rainy day cards again. I actually have a few of them. They really come in handy on days when I haven't had time craft. You should try it. Create 2 or more cards when you can. . .don't post all of them. Do this for several days and believe it or not, you'll end up with over a week of cards and you can take a few days break and still have cards to post. That's my secret on my ability to post daily. LOL!

These images are from the Clear and "something" stamp set. Darn I can't remember the name of the company. I think it's "Clear and Simple" or something like that.

I really had fun creating this card. It turned out better than I expected. LOL!!

Sorry for the lack of a sketch. I've been blogging from my laptop and the software for my sketches are on my desk top. If I were smart, I would load the program on my laptop too.

Anyway. . .just a bit of info on my card. I colored the images with my Copic Markers and the dots were created using my Scribbles Iridescent Paint. I love that stuff.

I'm trying to catch up on commenting on blog friends' sites. It may take me a few hours but I'll get it done eventually.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

Love this! The bright colors are so cute and then the softness of the argyle type DP. Beautiful!

LOL. I know what you mean about being engrossed on the computer. That's probably why I'm single. LOL. I have several friend (whom I adore) that talk alot. And I'll blur while talking to him and find myself going UH HUH, UH HUH. Of course, they really don't mind they just want to talk, so I guess it works out! LOL.

I love this orange and pink combo and this baby card is sooooo cute! So lively and fun. I'm running as fast as I can to keep up with you, Girl! I'm panting and you're going full steam creating such lovely cards! But, don't stop on account of me LOL! Love everything! Hugs, Cami
P.S. When your husband talks you to, stop what you're doing and listen. When you get older an hard of hearing, what he says may not be important then to listen while you can. He may be promising you something good LOL! Just kidding! I know how engrossed we can get once on the 'puter! Have a wonderful day! LMBO!!!
