Hope all is well. So today has been....well.....kinda of cray because I have been taking care of my poor hubby! He has some type of stomach bug.....so I am helping him without being close....if that makes sense....lol!! He made me take Theo out the house(Tim was not home at the time....still at work) so we went to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science(Free Day....SCORE!) and Theo had a BLAST!! So....yeah....pretty busy day....sigh. As Tim and Theo napped I took a "Mommy Time Out" and created a card that is....well.....not CAS(GASP!!!) and I decided to go for the Vintage/Shabby Chic thang.......CHECK IT!!
....soooooo....yeah....TOTALLY OUT OF MY COMFY ZONE but I do LURVE challenging myself......lol!! I played with some of my new Stampcow stamps too!! I used the Oval Victorian Antique Mirror Frame stamp on the tree! This card took me like an hour to come up with because I wasn't sure about it but then the hubby loved it and all was well with the world....lol!! I created this card for a few challenges!! I made the card for the Merry Mondays Anything Goes Challenge:
I played along in the Festive Friday Tree Challenge:
I also used the Mojo Monday Sketch too:
Thanks for stopping by!!!
