Well, it certainly wasn't my intention to skip posting yesterday, but you know, Mondays have a way of getting away from you. Especially when something like this happens.
Thank goodness for duct tape. Someone turned in front of me, I slammed on brakes, he tried to go fast, and, well, it wasn't good. The accident happened late morning, and over the course of the afternoon, I developed some severe neck pain that landed me at the ER. Big shout-out to the ER doctor, who ordered a shot that worked wonders and x-rays that showed nothing serious. She sent me home to take a bubble bath.
This was my audience.
When I turned on the jets in the tub, Cooper freaked. I thought he might jump in to rescue me from the evil bubbles! George dragged his furry butt out of the bathroom, but he sat outside the door staring at it for about five minutes. Then his short attention span kicked in, and he joined George on the bed while George read.
Bubble baths are amazing, and kudos to the doctor for knowing that.
I'm feeling much better today. We'll see if that holds once I start dealing with the insurance company. Ugh.
So here's the card that I would have posted yesterday.
This set is Concord & 9th's Just Because. Giant sentiments can be a challenge, but this layout works great for them. I stamped the branch first in Hero Arts forever green, then layered the speckles in Archival prickly pear. The because is also in forever green, and the remainder of the sentiment is stamped with Archival potting soil.
The card looked okay at that point, but I wanted to add some bling. These are Hero Arts olive gemstones. Three weren't enough, so I added two more to make an uneven number. Uneven is usually better than even in design.
Usually. All rules may be broken if you break them correctly.
I have no idea when it's correct to break them, of course. I design using the Force. Still, generally speaking, odd numbers are better numbers.
And if one bubble bath is good, two are better. Three magnificent. Off for another....
Mercy, grace, peace, love, and road safety,
