Purple Flowery Thingies

I know, for those of you who keep track {ok, Mom}, I was supposed to have my post up yesterday. Well, this is what happens when life gets in the way of all the fun stuff. Hmmm, ok writing blog posts isn't always the fun part. Sometimes I struggle with what to say. Yes, really. Hey, all this wit doesn't just roll off my...fingertips. Alright, so sometimes it's just a bunch of gobbledy gook, but I do have my moments. Anyway, since all the stuff I've had going on is boring for you guys, I won't, well, bore you with the details. But it hasn't all been humdrum. I've been working on my Christmas cards. Ha. The plan for those was to do it over the summer. I remember telling my mother that brilliant plan around May and she laughed at my naivete. 'Suuure, you're gonna have a nice, quiet summer. Mmhmmm.' I colored like, 2 images. And now I don't even like those. Whatever. But now that I've actually put my mind to it, I've got one layout pretty much done. Unfortunately, I can't finish the card and show you cuz I don't have all the supplies. So you guys get to wait it out. And look at this card instead. I liked it, then I didn't. What I've got to learn to do is not look at my cards once I finish them, cuz once they've sat on my desk for a few days, I pick them apart and think of how I could've done them all kinds of different. Better. And do I ever do them over in the new and improved version? Nah. I have NO attention span for recreating something old, so I'm always moving on. But I think you guys {ok, Mom} are really gonna like my Christmas cards. Well, hopefully at least one of them. I'm working on having a variety of cards again this year. I'm just holding out to see what Nichole over at Papertrey has up her sleeve this month before I finish up my layouts. Hope it's something good!

First, I do love this card. The flowers look like they could be silk. Second, what the heck were you doing with your summer? ha ha Third, you don't have supplies? Really? And you do realize it's September. You do know what that means, right? Not to put any pressure on, but I think Christmas is next week. I know it will seem like it when it gets here.
