Night Owl Here…

Spring Has Sprung_1_Mar 2011

Thank you so much for your oh-so-sweet comments on my last post. Having been such a lousy blogger for the past couple of weeks, I didn’t expect ‘em.

Here is a card I made last week with new stamps from Flourishes. While I saw so many lovely cards made with this set (here and here and here), it was this gorgeous card that made this set irresistible to me. That sweet nest – I couldn’t help myself.

This one was colored with a waterbrush and ink from my ink pads.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White, Olive, and Stampin’ Up Crumb Cake cardstock; Passages paper packet; Black, Olive, Garden Green, Heavenly Blue, Desert Sand, Brown Bag, Chocolate, Stampin’ Up Crumb Cake, and Tim Holtz/Ranger Antique Linen Distressing Ink stamp pads; Flourishes Spring Has Sprung and Stampendous Pattern Trio stamp sets; CTMH Speckled Background stamp (retired); Garden Green mini brads; Ecru crochet lace and olive twill ribbon from; waterbrush; Cuttlebug w/Nestabilities Classic Circles set; Foam texture tool.

A Slice of Life: I had a fun afternoon with my Mom. We went out for lunch and then did some shopping. I finally found a pair of jeans that fit better than any of the others I currently own. What is it with all the “low rider” jeans these days. Fine for 18-year-olds maybe, but I don’t think the crack of a 57-year-old’s backside is very becoming. LOL. Tonight, I am trying to get my mind wrapped around the idea of going back to work tomorrow evening. I hope things are straightened out from the end of last week. Management couldn’t leave a good thing alone and decided to make some procedural changes in the way we get the parts we photograph. Things didn’t work out at all on Friday night, which was very frustrating, so I am hoping they have either worked the kinks out of the new process or have gone back to the way things were done previously.

For now, I am off to bed with hopes of sleeping a little later into the day. I hope yours is a happy Hump Day! Take care, and thanks for stopping by.

Another absolutely beautiful card Kathi. You do gorgeous like nobody other.

I hope that management has worked out their issues by tonight and that things are better than they were last weekend.

Such a lovely card!

What a lovely card.

I have been a bad blogger also. I have some kind of respitory thing that I can't get rid of and I have no get up and go. Hard enough to get household chores done.

I don't even like to see "butt cracks" in 18 year olds.

Take care.

This is a pretty card! I love it!

I hear you on the darned low rider jeans. Most of the time I get jeans in tall because they make the waists a little taller, too, and I don't have to worry about my hind end blinding anyone behind me.

Pretty card! I agree on the jeans :)

Hi Kathi,
I am a regular follower of your blog and am just praying that life is keeping you busy and happy. Your absence makes me sad, but as long as all is good in your little corner of the blog-o-spere, I'm good.... Miss you..TerrieinAZ
