We've been a little sick in this household.
I have a few sniffles. That's about as sick as I've ever been. And I'm miserable.
The husband... well lets just say if I was ever that sick, I'd probably fling myself off a building.
I'm actually a little convinced that our basil is sick too. I think Mr. Basil just misses the summer air though.
So after dealing with the sniffles and a long two days at work (yes... I know it's only Wednesday), I decided I needed to each some chocolate, watch Biggest Loser and craft.
Is it just me but I LOVE watching people work out while I pig out. Is that odd?
I really don't just watch TV all night... I swear.
To get into the swing of things, I decided to participate in Papertrey Ink's first Make it Monday challenge. Challenges are always a fun way to get the ideas spinning and I just needed that kick today. This week's challenge was to use multiple sentiments on your card. What a fun concept - and something I've always loved when I've seen others do it.
When I chose colors, I decided to use purple. For some reason, it' a color I don't turn to often. It's like the ugly stepchild of colors for me. Do you have an ugly stepchild color?
So I stamped my sentiments in Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. I love embossing. Instead of using a stamped panel, I wanted to create a window. I have an obsession with windows right now as well. Embossing and windows...
To emphasize my window, I pierced a circle around my die cut window. Added a little crocheted flower and some buttons.
And there you go -- just a little simple didly for a friend on her birthday. Just don't tell them purple is my ugly stepchild...
Thanks for stopping by! :)
Have a fabulous rest of the week!
