Number 2

Alright... you may think, she has already lost interest... look how long it's been since she's posted! Honestly though... I have been thinking about Post Number 2 excessively. Do I talk about my kids 'cause they're my kids? Do I discuss the next Twilight Tuesday Challenge? Do I make a list of stuff I will eventually blog about? Gah!!! So I realized... who gives a crap? Why am I already making myself crazy over a blog??? Don't I have enough stress? So, I will write about whatever I can and feel like when I actually get 5 minutes in front of the computer (you should know that in this particular 5 minutes I am typing with one hand because I am nursing my daughter. Super Mom? Crazy Mom? I'll let you decide.). I am pretty sure my kids aren't gonna give a shit if I don't blog about them immediately. And I'm also pretty sure that the blog police aren't gonna arrest me if I don't discuss anything but Twilight for a while. Ahhh. I feel better now that I have liberated myself and my blog. Funny thing is... no one has even seen this blog yet, and I'm already going nutty over it! OK. Blog Number 2 is finished. What's next? We'll see in the next "free" 5 minutes I guess!

Just to let you know, when I read the Twilight series for the first time I did it one handed with my son attached to the breast! I would sit there for hours holding him as he slept and nursing him when he would wake again. This went on for 6 days until I finished all the books.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
