I need new lighting...

This is what happens when you can't see well in your craft room. You get a little out of control...lol

I wasn't going to post this card, but I decided what the heck. Sometimes the cards I hate are the ones yall love! So I'm throwing it out there for the world to see. Don't hit me if you hate it. Lie and tell me you love it, ok? ;)

I still am not feeling well...I now have 2 painful ear infections and bronchitis. And work is still crazy insane...so I haven't had a lot of time to stamp. And I've been working like mad trying to get samples made for the new classes I'm offering...gotta get those done by Saturday to take to my friend Kim! So I'll be busy for the next few nights.

Anyway, on to the crazy card. I made this last weekend when I decided to play with the Stampendous Bee images that AJ sent me. Love them! I colored them with Prismacolors & Odorless Mineral Spirits, distressed and sponged the tar out of them, and then for some reason decided to highlight them like MAD with my white gel pen. lol I also got fancy and rubbed some Pearlex on their wings! There's sure to be some sewing on there somewhere too. :D

I sponged another card front sized panel and stamped the sentiment from Happy Harmony on the bottom. Then I added some 5/8" Grosgrain ribbon from a swap I was in, and mounted it on my Caribbean card base. I'm still trying to get the hang of tying this ribbon...it's tricky but I'm getting there!

I hope yall are doing great...I'm excited about possibly getting to participate in VSN, hopefully I'll feel up to it. Check here for all the details, it's going to be fun!!

Hope you feel better soon, Chickie! Is there any technique you didn't do on this card? LOL! It sounded like a technique checklist there for a minute! :) Hugs and well wishes!

It's cute! I tried to stay up to see what you would post, but I couldn't keep my eyes open. You should go to bed earlier!

Hi Shannan! I really DO love your card, it's so cool. Did you color with white crayon? I guess I didn't read your recipe all that carefully (that's what happens when you're stressed out getting two teenagers out the door for school). I hope you start feeling better soon. What a crappy time to be sick. Hugs to you.
