Always....



It's three am and for some reason, my body has decided it is done sleeping. That is kind of weird since all it wanted to do yesterday was fall asleep every time I sat still for more that 5 seconds. Sheesh! I mean, I went to bed early, 10 pm, but still! Maybe I'm getting older....you know, the early riser syndrome my grandma has? Oh well, I figured that since I was up I would make my post.

I had a fun workshop last week. My hostess was 11. She is so cute....I'm totally signing her up to be a demonstrator...in 7 years! This is one of the make and takes we did. The card base is Soft sky with real red as the border on the band and heart. Al the stamping was done with Bayou blue. I stamped the bird onto scratch paper before stamping it onto the card base to give it a muted look. The stitched ribbon is also Bayou Blue. I added some highlights on the heart with my real red marker. I think everyone liked it, except for the girl that was terrified of birds. Go figure. She was able to make a really nice card without the bird. Very creative.

This next card is actually the card I made before the blue one. I love the look of Chocolate chip on red. For this one, I used my Vmark to stamp flowers on the red band and to stamp the bird. I stamped the heart and words with Chocolate Chip and then used my sponge to add more chocolate around the edges. You can't have too much chocolate, right? I especially like the wide chocolate grosgrain ribbon on here. Actually, the reason I didn't do this card at my workshop is because I was out of this ribbon! Yes, I ordered more yesterday. It is a staple around here!
I guess I will make an actual breakfast today....after I finish my book of course!
Have a happy day!
