Celebrate Today!

Good Monday morning!  Welcome to the start of the week and to my blog.  Yesterday was a total disaster in my pink castle ~ I spent all afternoon in there and accomplished NOTHING.  I was trying to work on some stamp challenges and stamped the same image 3 times and each time I absolutely ruined the hair ~ all 3 times.  The first time I had actually coloured the whole image first knowing that hair was what I am the worst at so I started with the hair the next two times ~ still not right.  Frustrated, I started to watch videos on colouring hair with Copic markers which led to me watching other videos which led to get the picture. 

I wanted to send a big shout out to my Mom today as it is her birthday.  She is 77 years young and still so active that half the time I never track her down at home as they are always somewhere.  For Mother's Day she received a cell phone so she could text her kids and grandkids ~ way to go Mom!!!!  And guess what, I can now track you down anywhere ~ hee!hee!

I made this card little card using something I learned yesterday watching videos with my Mom in mind because shoes are her thing (how to cut out shaped cards with my Nestabilities on the Cuttlebug).  She LOVES them and collects them too.  This is NOT her card because we have not seen her yet and I know she reads this ~ sorry Mom, no spoilers!


Card stock ~ Recollections
Patterned Paper ~ from my BFF as she knew my Mom likes shoes
Spellbinders Nestabilities ~ Labels Nine (it was the largest I had and this card is small,
more like a note card)
Cricut ~ Wedding Solutions shoe cut at 2"
Sentiment ~ My Pink Stamper "Everyday Occasions"
Colorbox Chalk Ink ~ Dark Brown
Bling and bakers twine from "Use It Up" inventory

Thanks for coming by today.  I promise I will get that hair colouring figured out yet and will finish the card I have been working on.  Take care and happy crafting.  Hope to see you soon.
