A Case of the Blues

I've got the case of the BLUES this morning. Why? Cause I have to take my kids to see The Lorax today! WAAA! Now, don't get me wrong, I love movies and I love my kids! I just don't love Dr. Seuss! Gag! As a teacher, you'd think I'd love him, but no, quite the opposite! Too much rhyming and nonsense going on! Sigh... I wish there was a good princess of fairy movie out...

Anyhow, my card is quite blue today as well!

I love monochromatic cards! They are always very eye appealing to me. This card includes Pool Party, Baja Breeze, Island Indigo, Marina Mist and Night of Navy. I think. LOL! My eyes started crossing once they were all together!

These little tag punches remind me of soldiers all in a line. Although I can see one soldier out of line from here! These boogers were very difficult to line up! I used Stampin Dimensionals and kept moving them, which in turn made the stickiness lessen. But, whatever. This ain't the Army!! ;-)

I finished the design off with a little Island Indigo ribbon, a sentiment from Three Little Words, the Modern Label Punch and the little frame from... I have no idea! Hmmm.... Who knows? Tell me in the comments!

I was inspired by the following two challenges to make today's card (both of which I missed the deadlines!):






Tomorrow night is my Big Shot class. I am super excited because we will be cutting metal and fabric as well as doing an embossing technique! There is still room available if you want to join me. Just email me!

  4. So how was the movie? I have to say those books were the only reason I began to read so I'm kinda partial to Dr. Suess. However, you would love to be me bc I don't have to see it. Grandpa beat me to it!

    I LOVE the card! So glad you had the blues so you could work through it with a therapy card.
