It's Been One of Those Days!

Welcome and thanks for visiting!!

The challenge this week at Christian Paper Craft Magazine (Color Monday) is to use all white or all ivory on your creation and you could use a little bit of an accent color. I tried to use a crystal glitter embossing powder but you couldn't even see it without tilted it towards the light so I chose the gold embossing instead. This is the first time I've actually used embossing on anything. I've been practicing a little bit on scraps of paper so I'm encouraged I'm getting at least a little better!

My paper is Making Memories Pearl Swirl I Do and Wedding by Bazzill. I used a decorative corner punch and a corner rounder from EK Success, the gold bow is from some heavy gage metallic thread I had and the stamp is one I've had for a couple of years and I'm not sure who made it. I used Versamark ink and Ranger Gold Embossing power. I've also embellished at the bottom corner with Stickles "icicles" (three dots).

Here is my sample for this weeks sketch (as well as the above card) from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog ( SSS05 )

This is also one of the baby announcements I'm making for my daughter. The cardstock is Paper Accents, white, pattern paper is MM Designs, Inc; the stamp is Tickled Pink from Unity Stamp Company; I used a Prismacolor Watercolor pencil Rose Deco; StazOn Jet Black Ink; Andirondak Pink Sherbert Dabber (around the white scallop and sentiment), Wild Plum Dabber accent color on the stroller/buggy; Creative Charms pearls; Dotted Swiss Cuddlebug folder; Marvy Uchida Scallop Oval punch.

It's been a long day! If you read yesterdays post you know that Jake spent the night with us. He was feeling a little bit warm before he went to bed and by the middle of the night had a full blown fever, he and I were up from 1:30am to 3a.m. Morning came very early (6:30am) and he proceeded to vomited once in his bed and once on me (lovely - usually I'm a sympathy vomiter but I did not join in this time (thank you, Lord!). Needless to say I did not make it to the Morning Bible Study and I had to call someone to take over for me. We were just finishing up a DVD series so there really wasn't any prep work, again I praise the Lord! Now all of this wouldn't be too terribly bad, but I had to be to work at 2p.m. and I had plans to take Jakob over to his Gee-gee's (that's my mom, his great grandma). Fortunately she was able to come over to my house since he was napping and I expected him to sleep for about 3 hours, that is until the fire alarm went off.... mercy! what a day! Again I have to thank the Lord, Jakob woke up in a good mood asking about the fire truck "helping people" is that not cute! He ate lunch, kept it to himself and was a delight (although feverish). His momma is keeping him tonight so that I can get a good night sleep before he comes at 6:15am (ugh... I'm not a morning person!) and we start the day all over! I think (I know) I could use your prayers!!

This is my "cuddle-bug!"
