How is everyone's week going? Ours is okay. My husband was supposed to go back to work this week, but we have been getting too much rain. So, we're praying he starts back next week. Employment stuff stinks. Ugh. I am praying for the day when things get better for our economy. I know we aren't alone in how hard things have been lately and are better off than many, but things are still tough. I really try to focus on the blessings in our lives and to not think about money stuff, but it can be hard sometimes. I know some of you can probably relate. Well, anyway, how about something happy like a cute card?
I actually created this card a couple months ago and never got around to sharing it until now. I used one of the cute little mice stamps from the Penny Black Critter Party stamp set and paired it with some patterned papers from the Material Girl line by Cosmo Cricket. I used black cardstock to help all the colors really pop and colored my image with copic markers that coordinate with my patterned papers. I added lots of stitching, a felt flower, and a button to finish off my card.
I spent the morning paying bills and running errands so I have some time this afternoon to scrapbook a little. I have been doing a lot more scrapbooking this year and haven't been stamping as much the last couple months. I really want to get a little more current in my scrapbooks before the baby comes. Right now, I'm working on May 2009 so I'm getting closer. (I started on January 2007 the beginning of the year!)
Have a wonderful day!
