I just don't know what it is about school vacations, but it seems that every year, all of my big plans are dashed to tiny pieces, as someone ends up getting super sick. Last night, it was the little man, falling victim to that wonderful respiritory illness that we call croup. Again. Ugh. I brought him to my bed, as I was sick of going up and down and up and down and up and down the stairs to blow his little nose everytime I'd hear him sneeze (and you could hear the boogers flying across the room, so it was quite necessary!) It was so adorable, he spent the entire first half hour trying to fall asleep by rubbing my cheek with his pudgy little hand. What a little gentleman :)
I made this card yesterday, and with a sick one, I see a lot more craft time. I think I'm going to focus on jar candles for my Etsy shop. This card is for the Some Odd Girl challenge (as it's a Some Odd Girl stamp, it's fitting!) I bought this recently, they are discontinuing some stamps and are having a big sale. This cutie is colored with colored pencils (just haven't gotten myself some good markers yet, it's a big investment!) and Studio G glitter glue. I didn't think to grab my Staz On for the stamp (it's wallpaper, shiny silver and pink wallpaper) so it doesn't look as it should, but it is embossed so it won't rub off. :) This will most likely go to my Rileigh at the end of school, the punk princess that she is. She is matted with Fancy Pants Love Birds, a scrap from the layout in my post from yesterday. Random ribbon, twisted, stapled. She is adhered with pop dots. I'm still lovin this beaded wallpaper, another goodie from my scrap box. White gel pen for the hearts.
