Sorry I didnt post this yesterday but time got away from me! This card is for Friday ways to use it challenge. The challenge was to use the new neutral color basic gray. I combined this with Wed. sketch challenge since I wasnt too happy with my card Wed.
For this card I used basic gray for my card base and stamped sanded background for tone on tone. I used Basic Grey dp scarlet letter. As soon as I saw the challenge I knew I wanted to use this dp! I stamped the dp w/the sanded bckgrd after stamping off. I layered the dp on real red cs. I used my quickutz photo corner in bb and put 3 brads on the photo corner. I used my basic gray taffeta ribbon on the real red strip under the main image. For the main image I used my Fabulous flower stamped in versamark and applied heat and stick powder before applying my glitter. The card really sparkles IRL. The flower is layered on bb and basic gray.
We have been dog shopping for the past couple of days for the kids for Christmas and seen some adorable dogs. Unfortantely we have came to the conclusion that are kids are still too little for a small dog that we want. My kids can trip over their own two feet.LOL!
Okay all you Moms out there Im sure can relate to my next story! Sometimes I get so upset w/my kids that all logical thinking just goes completely out the door! My kids were supposed to be cleaning up their toys and I was making tea. Well Alana is the oldest so she thinks she has to be the boss! I had already told her like 3 or 4 times to not worry about Madison and Brayden and get HER stuff up. Well Brayden had laid 2 of his trucks up off the floor and layed them on the couch to bend down and pick up another truck. Alana walks by and picks them up and throws them on the floor telling Brayden "those dont go there!" Well I had one of what I call my Linda Blair Mom moments and before I had even realized what I had done plastic spoon still in hand I go running up to her with the intention of popping her butt w/my hand and popped her w/the spoon. I broke the spoon! Thinking about it now I cant help but laugh at the look on her face! She got her butt up and got her toys up w/out one more work though!LOL! Thats probably going in the terrible mom hall of fame moments!
