I am crabby.....

The title of my post really has nothing, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, to do with my card tonight. Just wanted to vent a bit so I could share my crabby-ness in blogland! I love my family, don't get me wrong, but sometimes I just wish I lived alone! Okay, not really! My 'me time' today was nil. Hence the reason I am posting near midnight. LOL

Let me tell you....my day started with me in my bathrobe opening the door to the Dish Dude. Then EK came...yep, still in my bathrobe talking to the Dish Dude....then, EK's tutor came as I was ushering Dish Dude out.....yep, STILL in my bathrobe...finally a shower and real clothes.... My DH threw his back out on Sunday....yep, he was home too....my SisIL's fiancée had back spasms and thought it could be heart related....yep, home too.....FIL?....he was home too.....DS, yep....he and his friends....

So, I didn't see my craft desk until just about 11pm. But, my mojo kicked in, my card came together as I imagined it and once again, I am ready to tackle a new day!

My card uses the deconstructed sketch #59 and features image and sentiment from Peachy Keen Stamps. I tried something new with water color paper....interesting is all I have to say about that. I used CTMH inks and a water color pen, Copics, chalks, and TH Distress Markers. All in all, I like my end result! Papers are SU (the floral print) and DillyDally by My Mind's Eye; and, the ribbon is from the Can You Digi It? Store!

Oh? You want to actually see the card...lol.... Well, here it is. Hope it was worth it....




Thanks for stopping by!
HUGGZ,
