Simple Saturday on Sunday ...

I'm late. Yesterday was a no mojo day to the point I didn't even try. I can't say that I'm oozing with creativity today either, but I gave it a shot.

This is my take on Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #74. It's a simple card for a simple sketch.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Clover Meadow, and Tulip cardstock; Creative Basic Animal Cookies Collection; Animal Cookies Level 2 paper packet; Dutch Blue, Tulip, and Clover Meadow, and Dutch Blue ink pads; Sweet Baby and Say it in Style stamp sets; Sunflower mini brad; EK Success Dotted Wave Edger punch; Black My Legacy Writer.

Evidently, something got the best of me on Friday night, as I woke up yesterday all stuffed up and entertaining the nastiest of headaches. After the boys left, I worked on wedding stuff for a couple of hours and then slept all afternoon. The "time off" left me with an overwhelming amount of stuff to try to get done today. That said, I'd better get to it.

I hope you are having a great weekend. While Friday night was the extent of my "fun," it was enough. I had to laugh at Mathias yesterday morning though. With a downtrodden look on his little face, he declared, "But we didn't get to see the hippos." I tried to convince him that hippos aren't farm animals. Guess we're going to have to make a trip to the country with that boy. LOL. Enjoy your day! Later...

This is so cute Kathi. I love the colors and what you've done with the sketch. I wish this is how my cards could look without much mojo.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I hope you're feeling better now.

Wow! You say you didn't have any mojo, but you sure can't tell by looking at this fun, happy card! Wonderful.

Kids say the most wonderful things! I will look forward to seeing some hippo photos in the near future.

Sorry you had a bit of feeling under the weather after your Friday fun, and hope you are feeling much better by now (although having to go to work isn't much fun, I'll admit)

Have a great day!
