Enjoy your day....tiddly inks

Howdy ya'll! Ok, ok....I know that was a bit corny...but I couldn't help myself!!  So listen here, I have no kids this week....thats right, no kiddos for the entire week. Do you want to know what I did on my first night of "freedom"....slept! omg!  I was at work and was EXHAUSTED. I mean, like I had to get up and walk around because my eyes felt like sandbags! I went home with the best intentions of cleaning out 2 closets. Well, I got 1 partly emptied...and then stopped, sat on the couch and immediately went into lazy mode. After fighting to stay awake to get through True Blood, I finally called it a night at 9:00. That is WAY early for me.

So I am hoping that I am more awake today. Problem with going to sleep that early is I wake up so darn early!!  I have so many things I need/want to get done this week. I haven't picked up a marker in about a week now, but it's ok, I have plenty of things to keep my blog busy, which amazes me!  I am actually caught up and then some. Shocking...that never happens. I'm usually rushing to get a card made for a deadline. Not this month though...nope. Heck, I even have most of them scheduled and ready to go....high five for me!

So this cute little Wrynn I have had colored up for months now!  Ok, most of the cards I have made recently the images have been colored, paper picked out but I was DREADING putting the card together. I HATE, let me repeat...I HATE putting cards together. Just let me be and color away, would ya?  My friend, Wendy, totally puts her cards together and then finds an image that goes on it and colors it.......I don't know how she does it!!!! If I did it that way, I swear I would NEVER get a card made. I would just look at the paper pads and think..nah...I don't feel like making a card.  arghhh.

Details - Wrynn from Tiddly Inks, Paper is from Authentique. Sentiment is MFT. Rosette is from Tim Holtz die. Beautiful Ivory Jute/Burlap Twine is from Ribbon Carousel.

This card is adorable, Tracy! What a cute image and your coloring is exquisite. You and I are alike in a lot of ways and our crafting preferences is one of them! LOL I would much rather color than anything else but I do enjoy making the cards. I have dozens of images already colored, just waiting to be put on a project. There is no way I could operate the way your friend does. That would take the joy out of it for me.

Nice card, and I make my cards the same way as you, image first. I then spend ages finding something that matches, but I am a Pretty organic card marker and just make it up as I go along
Love Amanda @ 45 x
