U R picture perfect

Hi!  Another post!  We had a short power outage yesterday and gosh, darn it, didn't know what to do with myself.  So I cleaned my desk and did the bills and tried to organize myself.  But when the power came back on, we still didn't have internet connection.  Ugh!  So I looked through my digis and printed them out to color.  Good thing I remembered the challenge for Tiddly Inks!  I made a quick card last night for Tiddly Inks latest challenge #90 -- use Red, White and Blue.

I went with another simple design.  I printed Picture Perfect Wryn onto white PTI cardstock and just folded it in half.  I printed the sentiment and cut it into a fishtail banner.  The U and R are die cut with PTI's alphabet dies using their felt.  I actually wanted to sew the sentiment onto the card but since I don't know how to use my sewing machine, I used this rickrack ribbon to kind of give it that idea.

I colored Wryn up with Copics.  I wanted to alternate the colors of the flowers on the frame but I messed up on the very second one!  Geez.  Then added some stickles to the flowers. 

That's all for today.  I have a couple of quiet hours to myself but will do the dishes, tons of laundry and prep some fruits and lunch for the kiddies. 

Thanks for reading!

Ha! I know, so dependent on my computer for entertainment. Hopefully you got a lot accomplished. Another cute card! Didn't really notice that flower thing. And cute banner! If you can crochet all those complicated animals and flowers and hats, you can sew! I think it's hard to get the thread and stitches looking nice though, I haven't felt like playing around with that since that one time I tried to sew on my card.
