Whoa, when does that ever happen? Well, if you have seen my blog posts before, you know that I love to combine challenges. There are so many great ones out there that I have to combine some in order to be able to create cards. I'd love to be one of those people that can make several cards in one day, but 3 different cards is probably the best I have ever done, and that was a miracle in and of itself! This card is for the Mojo Monday #81 and for the PMS Monday Challenge #6. If you haven't tried these challenges, try them today! The Mojo Monday sketch actually has a prize this week from Verve stamps!
I'm scheduling this post for Friday, but I actually finished this card on Thursday. I'm going to give you the back story! This is the scenario at home after an excruciatingly long day with a rather whiny 4 year old girl (who will remain nameless...LOL!)!
It's 6:10 pm, and my husband walks in the door, puts his stuff down, gives me a hug, and I say, "Honey, it's 6:10 pm, and this mom is officially off duty." I proceeded to climb the stairs to my craft room and barricade myself in the room. I turned on the TV and tuned into some old reruns of NCIS (love that show!) and a little over an hour later, this card emerged! Now, of course, it is a wreck in there, and my dear daughter did pop in to make a card also, but the smell of brownies got her attention. Daddy knows how to bribe both mom and daughter! And, alas, the smell of brownies is calling me, too. My thighs are screaming, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?" But, the taste buds win every time!
