It's Monday.

It's Monday. So? So it is the beginning of a new work week and I have made a decision regarding my work V craft time. As I pointed out yesterday, I am no where ready for the festive season that is fast approaching so I have decided to divide my day in 3, morning - house work, afternoon - crafting while helping Sonny with his homework and while he is playing, than evening - either crafting or catching up on here.
This is our 6th Christmas since we adopted Sonny and in that time, we have had only one Christmas day here. Other Christmases we have traveled to Limerick to family on Christmas day. It's great, no cooking but it is nice to spend the day here at home. Therefore, I have to do a big clean out of the house, and I detest house-work but it has to be done. :( Anybody care to help?

The following is a card I made.  The verse is one that hangs in my mother home and I seem to read it every time I visit her and I thought it would make a lovely sentiment for a card. I just googled it when I got home and printed it out from there. I had some "fun" trying to line it up so it would appear in the aperture windows created by Spellbinders labels 4. I used MME Wild Asparagus backing paper and embossed it with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The ribbon is a Martha Stewart ribbon.  The little flourishes are a Waltzing Mouse Stamp from the Very Vintage Labels No. 4 set. I stamped them first in pink than again with a clear embossing pad, sprinkled some clear embossing powder and heat embossed them to give them a little 3D effect. I used some clear gems just for some bling.

Designer Paper: My Minds Eye - Wild Asparagus
Aperture: Spellbinders Label 4 Die Cut
 Cuttlebug Folder: Victoria
Stamp: Waltzing Mouse - Very Vintage Labels No. 4
Ribbon: Martha Stewart
Bling: Clear Gems.

Hope you like,
