Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice
My guys are all in the midst of either packing to move to school or actually in the process of moving. to stay out of their way today, I headed into my craft room. it also gave me a bit of quiet time to cry a little where they wouldn't see me. it doesn't matter how old they get, I still get sad when they head out of the house. and it doesn't make much sense because I've only seen them a handful of times all summer, but that's just the mom in me.
I'm still a bajillion projects behind, I think. I've had a bit of a setback in my cancer battle. it's making it tough to do my crafting stuff. just don't always have the enthusiasm to get to my craft room like I should. sure do hate this beastie......
so I made this birthday card loosely based on the sketch over at Die Cut Divas (so loosely that I'm not even gonna link it!) as well as a few other challenges. it may seem busy, but when it comes down to it, there aren't many embellies on the card. it was nice to get a bit funky though! ;)
The image is 'Disco Diva 2' from Sassy Studio Designs, sentiment is from Create with TLC, papers are Basic Grey Lauderdale, metal charms are Making Memories, and coolio leather flowers are Prima. whoooooops - great squares die is MFT. lots of dies and punches used. I added some touches with my spica clear glitter gel pen, too. this girl most certainly needs her bling!
