It has been crazy around my place, started this posta few days ago, but never got back to it. Got ready for a yard sale, that was for Saturday and Sundy, but I couldn't do Sunday, was in too much pain from Saturday and slo the lack of sleep. Work nights and got up early Saturday for the sale. It worked out okay, but am in a lot of pain, also weeded the yard imbetween customers. When will I learn, that I'm not spring chicken.

I have had this tree stamp for years. It is one of favoriates, but for some reason I haven't used it in a long. time. Ran across it and thought that the sketch challenge at The Pink Elephant Challenge would work nicely. I stamped the tree with Stampin Up ink and then suing a glue pen added glitter to the leaves. Cut an oval mat and then added samller ovals. Trim on the side is ribbon. Then stamped "What A Day", had to go shopping to purchase a new stamp. Thought that it would be neat to add some siz zag stitching aound the edge, like it, but don't know if it really tied in with the rest of the card. The base of the card is 5x7, the tree stamp was to large.

This would be the card for me yesterday, got to work and "What a Day!" Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend, mine starts tomorrow. I have half finished projects on my desk and ready want to get them completed tomorrow, but also need to deal with all the stuff I didn't sale. Oh well, just another day in the neighborhood.

Talked with my daughter yesterday and she and my sister were at a Scrapbooking Show in Salt Lae, so wished I had been there. They found some great new products, can't wait to get there to see what kind of projects we will be doing next.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a crafty one.
