Oh, Hello!

Hiya!!  Ever have a day where things seem to keep going wrong?!  One thing after another happens backwards, or the news you 'keep' receiving is less than stellar or your coffee gets cold while you manage to burn your eggs, or the peanut M & M bag really is empty?!!!    Today is feeling that way to me and it isn't even noon yet! LOL  What is a girl to do?  A good friend  (Hiya Carole!) reminded me of the value of loud music and shaking my groove thaaaang around the room and that seems to have helped tremendously! LOL  Bad gone....poooof! :)  I do have some eye candy to share with you today also a picture of one of my amazing kiddos!

I had a very difficult time getting a picture of this card because every single time I sat it up the wind blew and knocked it down! Notice the poor bent edge of the card!  Poor card!  

So, I laid it flat and took another picture! :)

I had such a good time making this card!  I used the large stamp from Creative Elements to make a background.  Then I softened all of the edges with a blender pen.  Sentiment is from Oh, Hello and the flowers are from the Flower Blossom punch.

 The flutterbyes are also from the Creative Elements  stamps set.  I faux stitched the panel in place and added sparkly bodies.

I frayed the edges of the flowers to make it look fuller.

What do you think?!

Stamps: Creative Elements and Oh, Hello!
Paper: Summer Starfruit, Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Summer Starfruit, and Tempting Turqouise
Punches and Dies: Flower Blossom punch, Itty Bitty punch pack, 1 3/8" Circle punch
Extras: Essentials piercing pack, piercing tool and Rhinestones

Fun card!

I also wanted to share a picture of one of my amazing kiddos with you!  My youngest is a gymnast and is quite talented!  Here is a picture of her doing her over splits.  Yes, her legs are made of rubber!  :)  

I am a proud mama! :)

Ok, my work here is done!  Off to crank out the rest of my day!  Have a great day! I will be back soonest with more to share!

AM, those butterflies are so pretty in how you stamped them in different colors. Oh how I like that starfruit color too!

I am with ya on the music thing. I remember driving home from work many a time all bent over something and I would just put on the most heavy metal music I could find. I probably should have been singing "I feel pretty..oh so pretty" from Anger Management instead of some acid rock! I did feel better by the time I got home. It always made me think you never know what the person in traffic is listening to!

Wow, on your DD. So awesome she is talented and focused on a fun sport.
