A Rush of Challenges

I'm in a bit of a rush this morning. Going to get this card up so I can get it into a couple of last minute challenges. Better post later! LOL I'll even up date this one with what I used!


 Back from my busy day today. Bailey and I had class this morning and I was in a rush this morning to get this card finished... Well! In my rush.. LOL... I am a dork! I sewed the card together!! So... I'm going to have to either un-stitch it.. or come up with a creative way to make it a card. Oh.. I love my stupid moments!! LOL And all I can do is laugh at myself.

After my rush to get this card done.. Bailey and I went across the street to Archiver's. We did our make a bunch of cards class, but had to leave a half an hour early so again it was rush rush! We went to each station and did what we could do, then we packed everything up and brought it home to later put the cards together LOL At least now I can do what I want to do with them. I like that better! We came back across and picked up Michael to head down to my sisters. We were going to something at Piedmont Park in Atlanta. All I know is that it was something to do with food trucks  *shaking my head* I just don't know.. don't look at me that way! But! Someone called them and told them the lines were too long, it wasn't what they expected so we ended up leaving before we even went in. We stopped and had a philly chease steak at a local restaurant and headed back to her house. At this point.. I'm pretty happy! I get to go home where I have a lot left to do this weekend. So here I am.. finally home again and able to sit down for a minute and relax. I still have some stuff to do, but I will do that tomorrow after church.

I'm just going to take a deep breath and enjoy the calm and not rush rush tonight!

The card... It features stamps from the Loolah Collection from Unity Stamp Company. I colored the ladybugs with Copic R22, R24, R27, R29, N7 and N4 for the ladybug. I used CopicE000around the flower petals and Y35 I colored before I put the pearl in the middle of the flower. I also put some black glitter glue, Studio G from Michael's on the spots of the ladybugs. The pearls I used are from Want 2 Scrap. All of the paper is from my pile of scraps that doesn't seem to be going down one bit LOL And I splattered red Making Memories paint on the card. I love paint splatter! I distressed all the edges of the papers.. tore the white paper on one side and of course my lovely, totally screw up a card sewing LOL Go ahead.. laugh with me.. you know it was a dumb moment LOL
