Sleepin' and Stampin'





After the flooding rains comes the glorious sun!! We've been enjoying some time off this week from our structured homeschool schedule. We've been working on our Young Author books, doing some projects around the house, and just taking it easy. What a treat to not have to do any driving! And, I've come to the conclusion that I can sleep just about any time of the day. I love sleep. Sometimes I wake up in the morning and wonder if I'll be able to take a nap that day :-) Isn't that pathetic? I really like to take a nap when it's raining and thundering. Why is that? Even though I love to take naps, I don't get to do it very often...but this week it was rainy AND it was spring break...so I've gotten to take 2! And, I've gotten to do some stamping as well. If you like paper crafts, and haven't checked out Kristina Werner's blog, you should. She gave out another color challenge and I gave it a go. I really had a hard time with these colors. The first card uses the Build a Brad for the center and says "Your Special Day". I think it's ok. On the second card, you probably can't see the glitter centers in the middle of the 2 small flowers. I think it's simple and pretty. Let me know what you think.

I love your card! I followed your link from Kristina's blog. I'm assuming that is a picture of your son at the top. Absolutely hysterical! TFS!

Ooooh, you're so inspiring with your cards, Trish! Love them.

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who counts 'napping' as a hobby! :) I could get 9 hours of sleep at night and STILL be able to take a nap.

You COMPLETELY made my day today!! THANK YOU! I wanted to call you but was entertaining my extended family and didn't.
I am not sharing I'm afraid. I'm getting a frame!! The beauty and the sweet gesture together make me smile. :) :) :) :) :) : ) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

LOVE them!! A color challenge? I'm out of the card-making loop. What is that? I especially love the second one. The button just makes it pop, and I love the simple, "You make me happy." That would make me happy, and I'm sure it will be a delight for the person who eventually receives it!

Great for you, on sleep. Me? Well, I enjoy the staying up super late, and sleeping in...when Fred is home. I do fairly well on little sleep.

WendyJanelle said...

Oh, and I rarely nap, because Fred says I act very witchy after naps. I'm inclined to agree, although I don't know why naps of all things would make me grumpy!!

I love the 2nd card. Would you share what you used to make it? It looks like a Stampin' Up! rub-on, but it's in green... Thanks!

Trish said...

Michelle,
The second card uses the rub-ons from Stampin' Up. The set of rub-ons comes in 4 colors: white, black, brown, and green...so I used the green rub-on for the card. Enjoy!
