I am valiently trying to get in the mood to blog this week, but so far, I'm not in the mood! Is blogging losing it's luster for me? Or could it be I haven't had time to stamp in the last week? I have zilcho stash right now...I sent all my cards off last week to my SIL, so I have nothing. And with no time to make new cards, what the heck do I have to blog about???? LOL!
Since I have nothing "new", I thought I'd share this sweet little card that I made with Verve's new tiny set called Some Bunny. Isn't he adorable? The set has just two stamps...the bunny and the sentiment. Even though it's small, it packs alot of punch. You could use this little guy for so many occasions! He'd be great on a baby card, or on motivating card for your son/daughter.
I filled in the bunny with Liquid Applique, and then I rubbed light pink chalk on his ears and feet with a little Q-tip. His little shirt (real men wear pink:)) is paper pieced with a scrap piece of designer paper. The black polka dot paper is from American Craft.
Things around getting really busy around here.....my SIL Jayne and her husband Ken are arriving today from Fairfax, VA. They will be here visiting for a week. Ken has lung cancer but has had a little respite from chemo for a few weeks now. If you are interested, here is a CaringBridge update on Ken. He is still very fatigued, but has been able to work a little bit. It will be wonderful to see them again since I last saw them in May. Doug leaves later this week for his ESPN gig in Auburn, AL. He'll be gone from Thursday-Sunday. That leaves me to do the schlepping for the rest of the week! We also started the college application process last night, which is daunting at best! I think everyone was applying last night because the U of Wisc. system was slow as beans! I was up early this morning to try and fill out more of the application before everyone got back online. I filled out all the pertinent family information, now it's Eldest Son's turn to fill out the meat of the application (i.e. activities, personal questions about why he wants to go to this particular college, etc).
Well, I'm going to sign off. I want to get a few cards made before we have to go pick up my SIL and BIL from the airport. Have a great day!
P.S. Be sure and check out the Verve Blog for Day One of the new Project Parade. It's called Gettin' Krafty, crafty that is with Kraft cardstock! For 10 or so days you'll be able to see all the fun things the Verve Divas have made using the new September stamp sets and Kraft cardstock. I LOOOOOVE kraft cardstock!
