Brain-Fried Friday

At least I *think* it is Friday. I'm so tired, it could be Christmas and I wouldn't even know it! Why I am tired? I think you know that answer. We are *attempting* sleep training with the babe, because I decided I didn't want to rock him for two hours at night, since that was how long it was taking him to fall asleep, even though he was tired. It is and it isn't working. Yesterday he wouldn't nap, and this morning he wouldn't go back to sleep after his 4am bottle, so I've been up since then! I'm trying to survive on only 4 and a half hours of sleep. (Yes, I KNOW I should have gone to bed earlier.)

I DID get a chance to stamp last night and today. I finally got him to nap this morning, and whipped out a few cards. The problem with being exhausted and brain dead while stamping is that I don't feel the creative juices running so well, so I end up copying my own cards. I've kind of been stuck on this same small/tall card layout with striped paper, ribbon, bling and scalloped circle. I think the last 7 or 8 cards I've made have all had this layout. I MUST try something different next time. On the plus side, my Unity order finally arrived last night and I got to play with some new cupcakes! Yum! (btw, shipping from Unity is usually SUPER fast, there was just a mix up with my order.)

Here are my small/tall yummy cards:




Have a great day, and happy stamping!

Girl, your cards are great! I can't tell that you only had a few hours of sleep. I can have 8 hours and I can't stamp like that.
