Good morning, friends! It is a good day, isn't it? My baby is currently bouncing like crazy in his jumperoo while babbling at the top of his lungs, so he must feel better--yahoo! I got some sleep last night. For our anniversary "date" (and I use that term loosely) I talked my dh into watching the movie/musical Annie, which was a childhood favorite of mine, and he had never seen. I STILL love that movie, and could sing along with every song! I remember singing those songs at the top of my lungs in the basement when I was growing up. "Tomorrow" is even one of the songs I sing at bedtime to the baby! AND, I've ALREADY had a chance to stamp today. Baby slept for an hour at naptime, and since dh was sleeping, I decided to do something I haven't done in a LONG time . . . I did Kristina Werner's color challenge!!!!!!! Here is her inspiration piece:
Here is my card, which I LOVE!!!!!
What I've now termed a "Happy Mistake" led to the flower corsage on the dress. I was re-inking my sage shadow pad, which I didn't even end up using, and I somehow got a dab of ink next to the dress. Well, I had already paper pieced it twice, because of another mistake, so I decided to figure out how to "fix" it... hence the flower corsage, which is a fun addition to the dress. That's about the right placement for it, isn't it? I mean, it wouldn't go any lower, because of, well.... :-) I suppose it would probably be a wrist corsage in real life, but that just wouldn't work for this card!
Happy Stamping, friends!
