We’ve all been there.  You know… not planning on sitting down and creating anything.  Too much other stuff to do.  HA!  And then one card later…

This card is for the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge #203.  The stamps used are from Flourishes new release “Autumn Flourishes”.


I used Basic Grey’s “Ambrosia” designer paper for everything but the borders and card base.  The edges have been sponged with Ruby Red and Chocolate Chip.  A white and a black gel pen were used to outline some of the leaves on the main image.  Both ribbons are by May Arts.  The rhinestones are by Kaiser.


Okay I really must do some laundry.  My 17 year old came to me last night as he was going to bed and asked if I could transfer the clothes that he just put in the washing machine into the dryer.  I’m a terrible mother.  Piles of laundry still sit from our trip to Boise, Idaho, this past weekend.  His X-Country team was running in the Nike Regionals there.  The girls had taken 1st place in Washington State.  They took 2nd at Regionals so now qualify for Nationals in Portland, Oregon, on Dec 4th.  Exciting stuff… but oh the laundry.  Yes, I must get to that.

Oh one other thing though… I got a call from one of my married sons last night.  They are expecting their first baby in January.  Looks like this little granddaughter may be coming early.  Kimberly is now on bed rest.  Having lots of contractions.  She is a very tiny lady and an early delivery was expected.  But we are hoping she can hang on for another 2 or 3 weeks.  They just (as in the final paper work gets done TODAY) bought a home.  Looks like Jeff will be doing all the moving on his own next week.  Wonder if he needs a mom to show up and help move the kitchen.  Maybe I can do their laundry!!  I’m so good at that!  LOL!!!
