A Long Day

I had better tell you about my card before expounding on my day just in case I don't have the energy to do both.

This is another of those cards that just kind of evolved - nothing like what I originally planned. Sometimes those are the best kind. I'm happy with the result. Looking at it, I don't think there is anything to say about it that you can't see. When it came to adding a little bling to my butterflies, I was happy to see that Close To My Heart has added some itty-bitty Sparkles to its new packaging.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White, Juniper, and Sorbet cardstock; Key to My Heart paper and stamp kit (National Papercrafting Month promo); Sorbet and Juniper stamp pads; Verve Stamps Beautiful You stamp set; Sparkles; Martha Stewart Butterfly punch; EK Success corner punch; Sponge dauber.

The writer's block I mentioned the other day took me right down to the wire with regard to the deadline for my 'difficult' writing assignment. Only a few times have I spent so many hours staring into a computer screen with absolutely nothing happening. I worried about it, too, and couldn't get to sleep last night, still staring at the clock at 2 a.m. When the alarm went off at 6, I told myself, "I have to do this." And with that and a bit of an adrenaline rush, I sat down at my computer and finally wrote my article. I finished it around 9:30 and emailed it to my supervisor to look over while I got ready to go to work. With a couple of very minor changes, it was done, and if I say so myself, it was good.

I worked the rest of the day and bowled tonight and was OK until I got home and walked through the door. Bedtime is imminent. When I have enough energy to feel anything, I'm going to feel good about the fact that I can still pull a rabbit out of my hat when the need arises. Right now, I just want to sleep. Thanks for stopping by. I'll catch you again tomorrow night. Between now and then, take care.

Such pretty colors in this card! You definitely cannot go wrong...no matter how tired one might be...adding butterflies to a card!

I'm relieved to hear your writer's block got smashed, but wish it didn't cause such havoc to the sleep schedule!

Have a super day!
