I did it!


Quick “scrappy” card inspired by the artwork that Beate selected for today’s inspiration piece. I’d told her earlier that I was just wiped and didn’t feel like doing anything creative. Long day at work, then came home to a kennel full of poop (ugh!), and kids wanted to go on a bike ride and to the park. . . . of course I said that and then I couldn’t get settled after going to bed yesterday, so figured. . . why not get up and make something? Make sure to go see what the other ladies have come up with: Charmaine, Danielle, Dawn, Silke, and Susan are sure to amaze & inspire!

Quick & easy details:

Card base is Shimmery White. Top patterned paper is Basic Grey from the Phoebe line, bottom is Sweetwater. Ribbon’s from my jar o’ green ribbons and is attached with Scor Pal sticky tape (that stuff is wonderful!). Ribbon slide & “let’s talk” are both Making Memories from my stash.

Have a great day!

    (I haven’t come home to a kennel of poop….but an apartment with shredded magazines and paper towel and puke!!)
