Wiggle Bum Sunday

I can’t seem to sit still today; the house was cleaned by 9am as was the laundry and linens (husband helped :)). Then I decided I wanted to make some apple cinnamon scones, and then the spice cupboard got cleaned.

I somehow found a box of stuff to go for donation and cleaned them up and then I put together a tray of peet pellets for garden starts. I tried to sit still for a card but ten minutes in I put some bacon in the oven for the start of some fully loaded potato soup, the rest of the prep follow closely in behind and I could understand all that if we were having the soup tonight… not.


I almost finished the card before wiggle bum set in again and I went and made some cinnamon vanilla nuts, you know those nummy nuts that you find being brewed up in the corner of conventions and tradeshows.  I finally finished the card which I am happy to say was intended for both the current The Card Concept and Seize the Sketch.


I have a few brand new 6X6 paper pads sitting on my desk and I love these cheery colours, I heat embossed the sentiment and popped it up with foam tape. I added in a little twine and finished with the flags. For The Card Concept I think I fall under Clean and Layered style.


Supplies: Cream and black card stock, Designer Paper – Fancy Pants, DRS Designs – Happy Birthday, twine.

I wonder what other trouble I can get into today J, I still have a couple of hrs and I still have ants in my pants so I will come back later to catch up on commenting.

Cheers,
Nina

  8. Gosh, I don't think I've ever accomplished all that in one day! I was exhausted just reading about it! And to think you still had time to sit and make this gorgeous card! I love it when pretty floral paper and striped paper come together and your little flags set them off perfectly! Thanks for joining us at Seize the Sketch!
