Thank goodness I’ve made it to Friday! Being sick is no fun! There are no “sick days” for moms. 😉 I tried really hard to get a simple card done on Wednesday to post….but it didn’t get done. I was totally swamped with other responsibilities and well, the card had to wait. The only thing I got done was the main image was embossed. It was that crazy of a day!

Yesterday wasn’t any easier. Running and busy all day. Now that I have a little energy coming back, there is so much to catch up on with a husband, four kids, and three dogs! So, before I share the card I finally finished (ahem, this morning…), I’m going to confess. My desk is a mess. A total wreck. As in, no creating can be done there. My job today (and tomorrow if need be) is to clear the desk to be able to scrap. I got it mostly set up after moving back after renovations, and then the desk got piled under.

Why, yes, the only area to work is in front of my computer, thankyouverymuch. Sorry for the iphone low light quality. Trust me, you really don’t want to see more detail. Promise. Yeah, this has got to improve today! (Yep, that’s the card that I’m working on right there in the forefront….wanna see the finished card?)

party animalHere is my finished simple card. It was originally intended for a challenge, but I didn’t finish the card in time. This card uses a new stamp set I got from Avery Elle. I embossed the image with a pearl sapphire embossing powder and it is perfect for the balloon animal! I love how it turned out!

Monday I’ll share my cleaned up space along with issuing a new Make Something Monday Challenge! You’ve got till Sunday midnight to enter this week’s challenge to use a doily. Also, drop by Sam’s blog and give her virtual hugs – she’s been swamped, too!
