I dislike mornings. No, really I do! It really isn't my deal-li-o to be bright eyed and bushy tailed at 5:35am. Yep, my teen needs to get up at that awful time....why?? Good bus comes at 6:40 to take him to school.
Unfortunately, last night my mojo kicked in about 10:45 and I felt the need to make a card. So, despite happiness over mojo, there was sadness this morning when I HAD to get up! I did go back to bed for a bit and now (after being awake for a bit) I am going to show you my creation.
I love Peachy Keen Stamps, but have so very few. (I am hoping Santa reads this post to know that!)
They have a weekly challenge and I love to enter, but sometimes I don't have the perfect stamp. I love though that I am still in 'use what ya got' mode!!
So, all that being said.....
I used what I have.....scraps of coordinating card stock run through some embossing folders for some texture and a 'tweet' immie and sentiment that made for a wonderful congratulatory card! I reconnected with a school mate on FB and she became engaged this past weekend.
The challenge this week was a sketch:

And, here is my card to send to Amy (and Larry)!

Thanks for stopping by!

Poor Kyle, he might have to be on his own at that hour, if he lived here! LOL

Super cute card. Love the layout and the textures. That image is too dang cute!

Oh this is just TOO CUTE, April! Great job on using what you have. Love all the wonderful textures in this, and the little birdie really stands out. I can totally relate about those early mornings -- Wes is up at 5:20 every day to catch the bus for the two hour ride into the city for work, but I just can't make myself go to bed before 11. Sleep deprivation is a way of life -- LOL!
