Well, I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day! I did...I got an i-Pod! Not a fancy one...not even a "touch"...just a little pink shuffle. But I'm thrilled with it. I can't believe I waited so long to ask for one...or get one for myself. You know, back in 2007, I was taking some classes at the university and I can remember asking one of the younger students was an Mp3 was LOL! I still didn't get it. When I had kids, I found that music played a smaller and smaller role in my life. We all remember the days when we had the equivalent of the Wiggles playing in our car, because happy kids made happy Mommies. So to just enjoy listening to my music, by myself while I walk our dog, is bliss. Pure, heaven sent, bliss. I walk longer, farther and harder much to puppy's delight and with a big smile on my face. Instead of dreading the walk, I look forward to some time alone with my music! Oh joy. I can't believe I waited so long!
Oh...and here's my card! A quickie using Clean and Simple's Fall to Layout#138.
I'm about a week behind for the sketch, but I really liked it and decided to try it with my new Stampin' UP! toys. I finally joined a club, I got so jealous seeing all the colour challenges that I didn't have the colours for. Now I do. I used two of the new colours on my card today...Peach Parfait and Pear Pizzaz along with Baja Breeze. The stamp set is called "Punch Potpourri" and when I saw the sketch, I knew it would be perfect. It's pretty straight forward. The stamp works with the punch, and I punched it out about 6 times to get all the different flowers and colours. I used lots of pearls...because I have way too many, it's about time I splurged instead of hoarding.
That's all for today. I'm tempted to put my earphones in right now and listen away now that the kids are in bed. I could play it real loud and not wake up the kids. Hmmm....maybe I will!
