A Riddle For You

What happens if a mom has a week that includes...

  • getting "burned" on the face for 8 hours by plant sap
  • spending a day with left side of said face swollen to the point the eye won't open
  • hosting 3 stamping workshops in her home
  • watching a neighbor-friend for 3 days
  • celebrating her son's 13th birthday
  • spending 4 hours of that birthday in the waiting room of dr and optomotrist for birthday boy, along with the 2 sibling AND neighbor-friend
  • spending 3 hours of that birthday picking up birthday boy's good friend that has moved away
  • running the kids to the pool almost daily (thank goodness it rained 2 days)

???

Answer: not much stamping!!

.

So here's a quick card idea I'll share with you. I used this week's Unscripted Sketches 08--thank goodness for a sketch jumpstart. I am really starting to look forward to these each Saturday.


What I used:

stamps: Fun and Fast Notes, Darling Dots (available as a level 1 hostess set through the end of June only)

cardstock: whisper white, pretty in pink, so saffron, tea party designer series paper

ink: staz on jet black, certainly celery

accessories: so saffron 5/8" grosgrain ribbon

tools: Big Shot with sizzix die flower, daisy #2 and nestablities

Thanks for stopping by today. We are enjoying the weekend with my husband's parents whom we haven't seen since Christmas!

Don't forget I will post the Last Chance Lists on Monday, June 1.

Sound like Wonder Woman to me, Tasha. Ah, sweet youth, and motherhood! Labors of love for sure, and I do like the quilt-like look to your "quickie". Or am I thinking of Unsinkable Tasha Brown! Lol. Hang in there!
Cool cardin',

Wow, you definitely needed some stamp time! Great work, the watercooring makes it look like the bouquet came right out of the patterned paper pack.

Here's to a better week filled with stampin!
