Have you ever had so many things going on that you forgot what day it was? You really knew but things just seemed wrong somehow. I was that way yesterday. I spent the morning going through my parents papers to gather information for some benefits I'm applying for in their behalf. When I went into my craft room to put together my card for Muse
, I looked at my watch and it was 1:00. I thought "Darn, I've missed the deadline." I had it written on my chart for Saturday noon and I thought it was Saturday. This morning as I was writing down today's challenges, I realized today
is Saturday and I could still do the Muse
challenge. I quickly put my card together and came to post it. Then I saw it - the notice that the time had changed and I had until 8:00 am Monday to enter. The notice was posted before but I totally forgot about it and didn't change my chart. Something must be telling me that I am supposed to enter this card.
The inspiration card is by Anita (in France). Isn't it lovely?
The reason I was so late in getting a card together was because I was having trouble deciding what to do. I tried several things and nothing really spoke to me. I mainly saw the black lines, brightly colored balls and celebrate sentiment. I know, I know. That's pretty literal. Okay, I know that, too. Literal refers to words but I don't know what word to use for a picture besides "copying" and to me copying means "exactly the same" and mine definitely isn't. The same, that is..
I cheated and used striped paper for the bottom of the card. I punched the sparkly dots from a variety of glitter paper. I didn't have any pink so I embossed some pink paper with sparkle embossing powder and then cut it with a paper punch. The sentiment is from PTI's Birthday Bash and I used an extra dot for the "o".
It's a rather dreary day today so I'm hoping that after I get a couple pair of jeans cut into shorts and hemmed for my husband, I can do some more card making. It's a perfect day for it.
Thanks for stopping by. I enjoy your comments so I hope you'll leave one.
Your card is fabulous! Love the pops of color with the black & white, and the way you used an extra "dot" in your sentiment!ReplyDelete
Clever, clever, clever! Love how you took Anita's gorgeous card, and made it gorgeous in your own way. This is just fun and happy and I like it very much. Way cool. BevReplyDelete

What a fabulous, celebratory card, Bobby ... all those glittery dots of colour against the dramatic striped PP are wonderful ... and I love how you added the 'o' to the sentiment! Thanks so much for playing along! Anita :)ReplyDelete

This came out great! Love the lined paper & punches your own sparkly dots!ReplyDelete
I love it - reminds me of a game we used to play in the arcades at the seaside where you had to roll pennies between the lines.ReplyDelete
Your sparkly dots look fabulous on that lined paper. I especially love the dot for the "o" in your sentiment. That pulls everything together so perfectly!!ReplyDelete
Oh, and just before I came to visit your blog, I had announced to my husband that I thought it was Sunday!ReplyDelete
