A few ODD things

I have been sooooooooooooo MIA lately......this is what summer is all about I guess.{ Also this is what happens when I don't have a buncha creations stockpiled for posting daily....heehee. }
I worked two 12 hr days, Thurs & Fri, then went to the big city on Saturday to see CARS 2 with my 3 yr old (& truth be told it was still action packed but a bit difficult to follow for me, never mind my son) . Came home, had supper & finally got to sit down & start this creation & also had a chance to visit with hubby (after not actually seeing him for 2 days straight). He runs his own business & needless to say, he was busy running like a mad man!
Then today (Sunday) left me waking up at 5:30 am with my 15 month old, then my 5 yr old shih-tzu escaped from our back yard........Missing for about a half an hour before anyone noticed. OMG was this a traumatic experience! There were tears of sadness when we thought she was gone for good (after an hour of searching the town high & low) & tears of happiness when she was found. Thanks to Roberta & her son & our other two sets of neighbors who gave a concentrated effort in looking for her! We owe you our lives! I was so emotionally drained, it hurt.


Speaking of Roberta, aka: The Prairie Fairy (of Prairie Fairy Designs) - aside from being my BFF & shoulder to cry on (such as the above instance) she is a multi-talented artist who enjoys dabbling in many different styles & mediums & as such she has a bit of candy on her ART BLOG........if you are interested in winning this magnificent canvas painting, pop on over to her ART BLOG to leave your name!


As for my creation......this is a commissioned card for a girl at work, who asked for an extra special baby shower card for her maid of honor's new baby. First image that popped into my mind was this adorable digi stamp called Tiny Baby from Some Odd Girl, who BTW are having a DT call until July 17. This is another one of those teams that I would LOVE to be on...........we'll see how the crossing of my fingers & toes works out!

This butterfly punch & little bottle (Tim Holtz set of 10 or so in different sizes- empty) I bought on Saturday at Micheals with the help of a 40% off coupon  & 15% off entire purchase coupon, including sale items. Ahh!! Gotta love those dealeos!  

 I know you can't see it but behind the acetate sentiment I embossed the white paper with baby feet & hand prints. Hope she likes it.

Challenges for my card:
Crafts & Me- stitching
A Spoon Full of Sugar- ribbons & bows
Crafty Calendar- things with wings
Pile it on- going in circles
Simply Create- fly with us
Creative Inspirations Paint- inspired by babies
Paper Sundaes- pick two toppings ( I chose paper piercing & gems)
Some Odd Girl- White plus 2 color pop (pink & fushia)

GACK! Loosing a dog is NOT fun!! I remember once my ex was out of town and I had a party on the weekend. Some idiot left my front door open and my yellow lab escaped. Well he cost us a bunch of money to start with and since I wasn't going to share my story about having a party when the heck was I gonna tell my ex? LOL! I put signs EVERYWHERE in town and someone saw it at the McDonald's drive through and called me. She was hoping no one would claim the dog cuz she had a black lab and wanted to call them Salt & Pepper. LOL!! But I was just sick about losing him, which made my hangover that much worse. ha ha ha! Well that was years ago and I don't drink much anymore and nor do I have the dog but since he was found, it was kinda funny. hee hee

This card is freakin' adorable!! What a cutie and great coloring on the skin too. Good luck with the DT!! Hugs!
