Busy Day! Another Playful Petals Card

Oh my, what a busy day I ended up having today! I wasn't home much at all. After I got the girls dropped off at school, I delivered an order and came home with a van full of toys. My friend is decluttering and cleaning out in preparation for a move. I had just a few minutes by the time I got home to sit for just a few minutes, then I was off to pick up Jessica. Today was Amy's early release day, so we had just about an hour for lunch and relaxing (Jess played with some of the "new" toys), then we were off to pick up Amy. The girls always want to play afterschool, so we did that and then it was off to the dentist for Amy, who was scheduled to have a cleaning. We were there a bit early, actually. Amy did an awesome job and told me I didn't have to go back with her! What an independent girl she is becoming. No cavities! Yea!! As I was finishing up with the receptionist, I asked when Jessica was due. Well, their records show that she hadn't been in for a year! I am pretty sure she was in this past spring but they didn't have any record of it. They were able to squeeze her while we were there! She did great as well, but has a tiny cavity, so we are going back tomorrow morning to get that taken care of. So, that took longer than I planned. Get home and the girls played with the toys, while I cleaned some others up and looked for batteries for the electronic stuff. Discovered we were pretty much cleaned out on batteries, so after dinner, I went and got some. Came home, plugged them in and then read with Amy and Jess. Got the girls to bed and started to work on my newsletter, which is overdue already! Not quite done with that, but I am just plain and simply tuckered out so I will work on that more in the morning.

I did want to share this card inspired again by Carolyn Hulin's artwork. It's 4 1/4 inch square, not my normal size, but it will still fit in a standard sized envelope. Nothing too out of the ordinary. Desert Sand, Barn Red and Colonial White cardstock. Stamped with pigment White Daisy ink and heat set to dry quickly. Added some grosgrain ribbon, a just bloom and a Barn Red Bigger Brad. Celebrate is from the Happy Birthday stamp set.
And, thanks to Kim, I finally remembered what to do to insert my watermark again! I was having a brain freeze about it and emailed her. Thanks, sweetie!

Happy creating to you!

What a busy lady you are! And I'm still trying to figure out where to put all my craft stuff. Going from a huge room in my basement to a small bedroom to now half of MY bedroom has been challenging. But I'm almost there and I will send out pics when it's all done.
