Love ...

Hi!  Today's a new day.  I realize that I am not only a stress eater but a stress cleaner!  I finished off the chocolate covered almonds from Costco (I shared some too!) and managed to clean all our bedrooms, sheets, fans, carpets and did all the laundry too.  But I had to stop vacuuming because our vacuum just shuts off by itself.  It's been doing that everyday.  I vacuum a room and then it shuts off by itself!  Frustrating.  We need a new one.

Well, I did manage to finish a card!  TGF is now having sketch challenges over at SCS!


I chose to use TGF's Flutter Anya.  I haven't used this stamp very much so thought I'd give her some attention.  I've been trying to use stamps that I haven't even inked up yet before buying even more stamps.  My hubby said this card looked very busy.  I guess he is a clean and simple kind of card guy but sometimes I like to really embellish my cards.

I chose to color her in varying shades of red for iCopic's weekly challenge #67 -- red love.  I added some glitter to her wings.  I actually used some of my son's glitter glue and stickles.  There's some glossy accents on the hearts on her wings.  I added a love charm and a heart die cut from PTI's tiny tags.  The butterflies are from Martha Stewart and the leaves are also from PTI.

I'll also be entering this into Flutter By Wednesday challenge #188.

Thanks for reading!

Cute!!! This was one of the first TGF stamps I bought, I still like her a lot! Love her red outfit! Cute white accents! Nice take on the sketch. Cute embellishments! I think I need to use more of mine, now I'm accumulating way too many, I will use your stickpins one of these days... Wow, you cleaned a lot. I think I can only clean in small doses.

We must be on the same wave-length. I vacuumed, mopped, washed all throw rugs, baked, and sorted all my pics so I can get caught up on my scrapbooking. And yes, I too had a little too much chocolate today.

That being said, I can't believe you had time to do this fantastic card!! I think it's just perfect. I stopped asking my hubby his opinion, and now I only ask my 7 year old. ;) I love the paper too, just bought some myself a few weeks ago.

We're over half way through the week!!!

I was the opposite of you, while you did the indoors I did the outdoors - which was mowing the lawn, racking and pruning... Thursday is my day to do the indoors chores....
BTW love your Anya card, I have those bg papers too.....pretty flowers and teeny butterflies....

So adorable, Eva! And i love the spray of flowers & butterflies! Too busy? I don't think men are comfortable with different patterns, lol! Your card is perfect!

Fabulous card. The use of the Stickles and your son's glitter glue (I had to giggle at that one)are so perfect and that flower spray is divine! Thank you so much for joining us at iCopic Lovers this week. :)

Just gorgeous! Yay for doing something different and using up your embellies! Love that you used your son's art supplies - Flutter Anya came out wonderfully! Wish I was a stress cleaner too!
