I am very cranky today. It started of my with soon to be a teenager son refusing get up from his bed in the morning. And when he finally did, moves so slowly around the house and taking his own sweet time to get ready to school. Very frustrating:( You know, I feel like attaching a propeller rather an accelerator with a remote to his backside to help him move a bit faster. Arrr! In a year’s time, I will have not one but two teens at home – one boy and one girl. Life is heading to a very interesting phase I guess 🙂
Anyway, I was also sick of cooking, cleaning and washing that I dropped everything today and decided I make a card to help me relax. I browsed through and found Retro Sketches #10 and Runaway Inspired Challenge #11. I decided play both.
Here is the sketch and inspirational picture.
And here is what I came up with.
Cardstock: White cardstock from Wplus9, Chocolate Chip from Su and Baby Pink card base and matching envelope from local store.
Stamp set: Decorative Doilies and Fotiments Birthday from Uniko Studio
INks: Soft Suede, Pretty in Pink from SU and Bubblegum from Amuse Inks, Archival Jet Black Ink
Accessories: Pink Bakers twine, Pink Rhinestones from Kaisercraft
I love the modern looking doilie stamp set from Uniko Studio. The package arrived yesterday and beautiful stamp sets. Love love them.
I modified the sketch a little and also stamped on the envelope to coordinate the card.
OK, time for lunch and hopefully I will have a bit more time to play before I pick the kids from school. Time flies like crazy. It is scary! Life is busy at the moment. So many things to do. I am hoping for everything to settle after two weeks. Fingers crossed.
Thanks so much for visiting and also listening to my frustrations today.
See you soon and until then..
