This is my adaptation of OCCSC22, the current sketch challenge on the Our Creative Corner blog. As someone who usually uses an odd number of elements, I was thrown off a bit by the fact the sketch calls for two. But then, I remembered a cute wedding card I had seen somewhere. The question was, “Where?” The search began with me scanning through quite a few of the numerous blogs to which subscribe through Google Reader. It took a while, but I eventually found this card featured on [fittingly] the OCC blog.
“Borrowing” the heart idea, this is the card I came up with. Although it was my first inclination to create a white and black card, I decided to use pink so the “dress” would stand out a bit more. The hearts proved to be the challenge, because I’d previously convinced myself I didn’t need heart-shaped Nestabilities. After this past weekend, however, I am certain, beyond a doubt, I not only need hearts but stars as well (This awesome card on Sharli’s Place sold me on the stars!). Anyway, if my hearts look a little rough around the edges, it is because they were cut free-hand. I’ll save this card for inspiration and make another to actually use once I have the dies. It’s a cute idea, don’t you think?

My first day back in the real world wasn’t so great due to a lousy night during which I experienced multiple Charley horse cramps that alternated between my left calf and foot. Ouch! It seemed like I would no more than get up to work one out than I’d fall back asleep for a few minutes only to wake with another one. When the alarm rang at 6:45, I must have shut it off. Luckily, I woke up on my own in time to get to work on time. As you know, strenuous exercise was not on this past weekend’s agenda. A calcium or potassium deficiency is unlikely. With dehydration the most likely of any of the causes, I drank less coffee and more water and juice today. Tonight, I am really tired and hoping for a good night’s rest.
I’m really hoping, too, your day was better than mine. With that, I’m off to get a few things done before soaking in a hot tub of water and heading to bed early. Enjoy your evening, dear friends, and thanks for stopping by.
