Fade to Pink

Ok, so this isn't a reject card. I chickened out. But when I'm desperate and have absolutely nothing else to post, I'll probably cave. Yes, I was desperate this weekend and should have done that. But I didn't even have time to post. I was ready to sit down & make something on Thursday, but realized that something was wrong with one of my drawers in my faboo Ikea cabinet that I keep my stamping stuff in. So, I started to fix what I thought was a 5 minute problem. Dork. 2 hours later, it was time to get the girls from school. Then, Friday Shawn was home. That's when we get all the boring stuff done that's easier to do while the girls are in school. Ok, so eating breakfast at a restaurant without a kid's menu on our table is not boring, but getting new outlet covers at Lowe's is. (Kids!) So running errands and sneaking in a nap (ssshhh!) knocked out Friday. Saturday was definitely out. Darien had a volleyball tournament in a city about 90 minutes away. That meant leaving the house for the day by 6. Do you know how hard it was to convince Krista that she really did want to get up at 5:30 on a Saturday? Without a little bribery, impossible. And of course, because we can't have a weekend without excitement, Darien's phone (her life, her oxygen, her love) got stolen while we were there. *sigh* It really is always something. But, the girls played well, she's already replaced her phone, we all got to sleep in yesterday and then I made a card. Gee, and it's already Monday. Oh, yay.

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes (SU!), Birthday Surprise (Verve), Ink: Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose (SU!), Versafine Onyx Black, Paper: PTI white, Pink Pirouette & Basic Black (SU!), Accessories: Sweet Blush satin ribbon (PTI), paper piercer, white embossing powder, slot & circle punches (SU!)

Despite (or maybe because of?) the frustrating Thursday, the boring Friday, the oh too exciting Saturday, you still somehow managed to come up with a truly beautiful card. Soft, relaxing, different. Amazing how the mind works.
