Unity card on a snowy afternoon

*click here for my massive blog candy give-away**



  Another gray snowy wet day here in Canada and it inspired me to dig out my Basic Grey origins paper to try and bring the colours of the sun and earth to my world. Hopefully it will help nudge Spring into coming soon. I am hoping to hire someone to work on a garden this year so I can enjoy my backyard.
 
I hadn't yet played with my Dec Unity KOM due to Christmas, etc. so I was anxious to see what stamps from the kit I wanted to play with first. I grabbed the beautiful background stamp and the flower image. I stamped the background in soft suede from SU then used Martha Stewart brown glitter for the flower. I used a sketch from Sweet Stop Sketches blog that I stumbled upon just this morning. I distressed the edges and did some faux stitching as my sewing machine scares the heck outta me! Some bling and voila! I love its earthiness. Reminds me of the forest in the spring or summer.
 
Does anyone else have a 10year old DD that is going through massive mood swings? I approach her hesitantly, sniffing the air around her to see if I can sense her mood. She is in a phase right now where she is so snarly and when  you try to talk to her about her tone she defends it and makes it anyone's fault but hers. This is something my mother again finds so hilarious after having to apparently put up with me tee hee.
 
Well I hope you have an amazing rest of your day and that you get some crafty time in! Andrea

I hear you about 10 year old DD. Mine is always right, and will argue her point to the bitter end. Sassy and always right. Yes, I remember when I was like that, and it was hormones for sure. What happened to our sweet baby girls? (I will say she only acts this way to me and her father..thank goodness)
Oh and I am not allowed to sing out loud in front of her friends! LOL!

Michelle said...

BTW I forgot to add your card is beautiful!

OMG!

OK..I am back! LOL!
This is a beautiful card! WOW!!!! I will be CASEing it! LOL!
I have a son and we didn't do the mood swing thing but many of my friends went through the same thing with their girls. I think it is pretty normal.
Hang in there!

Hugs,
True :)
