It’s Smiley from afternoon, the start of a long Holiday weekend. Mallory will be home early evening with all her laundry. That means I need to get mine finished up this afternoon so that the laundry room isn’t too big a mess. I’ve only been trying to get it done all week. Ah well, the best intentions often go astray . . . especially if one suffers from CRS! I know when I started writing this post that I actually had a point. What it was, I don’t remember. Here’s what happened . . . open Word Perfect, start typing; let dogs out; reheat something for lunch; get email about Labor Day Sale; think about post; let dogs in; get lunch from the microwave; oops cokes in the garage – go get them; get paper while in the garage in case there is a sale ad; stare at computer screen; fight the little shitz’ off my lap while eating; think about this post; clean dishes; stare at computer screen some more; check paper, no ad; stare at computer screen and realize . . . what the hell am I doing? I don’t remember! There you have it . . . CRS!

I know there is a card somewhere in here, because it has only taken me 2 days to finish one. Yesterday’s Ways to Use it Challenge was to use colored pencils. Great challenge! I haven’t used them in so long and was looking forward to it. I colored an image, made a card – hated it, threw it in the garbage. Started a second image and it just wasn’t working for me either. Into the garbage it went. Last night after dinner I gave it another try. The image worked but I left it and said enough for one day. This morning, when I checked on today’s Limited Supply Challenge, I knew that I could finish my card today. So, here is my card – three challenges rolled into one! This week’s SCS Sketch (layout was something borrowed), Ways to Use It (using colored pencils) and Limited Supply Challenge (something new, something old, something borrowed, something blue).


My something new: stamps from Whipper Snapper and paper from StarLitStudio. Something borrowed: the SCS sketch from this week. Something old: Textile CB Embossing folder and Prismacolor Colored Pencils. Something blue: the little butterfly in the image.

  • Stamps: Anna Wight’s Blossoms and Butterflies from Whipper Snapper Designs
  • Paper: 7 Gypsies Henna from Morocco Journey; SU Chocolate Chip; Prism Papaya Puree; Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
  • Ink: Ranger Archival Jet Black and Vintage Photo Distress
  • Accessories: Spellbinders Wizard; Cuttlebug Textile Embossing Folder; Prismacolor Colored Pencils; Turpenoid; Blending Stumps; Tsukineko Sponger Dauber; Brads; Ribbon

I’m going to finish the laundry before I get into something else, and I forget again. Don’t ya just hate it when you have a load in the wash that you started 3 days ago and you forget all about it? I hope you have a great Labor Day Weekend! Hey and don’t forget about my Twisted Humor Challenge . . . I so need some good laughs!

  2. Friday? Yippppeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!
    No matter how long you worked on this card, it was definitely worth it! Great stuff!

    (College laundry … ohhhhhh my. Sending sweet thoughts to you!) LOL

  3. OMG Sherry you are so hilarious!! I always love reading your posts! Your past few days sounds almost identical to mine! Love your card it turned of Great!!

  4. Ahhhh……like the combo card (yeah…mine “take 2” is almost done, hehe….keep getting interrupted by a mangy dog who thinks he is one of my kids!!)

  5. very pretty image and a lovely background for it!

  6. Your card is great Sherry – love the color selection, the dry embossing, everything. I do love reading your posts. I’m glad to hear (it’s actually encouraging) it’s not just me that gets distracted with a myriad of things and then takes 2 days and some hits to the garbage can to complete a card I’m actually happy with. It definitely was worth it though.

  7. Beautiful card! I love the colors you used. I feel a case coming on with this one. Take care!!

  8. Beautiful, Sherry! I love this set, what you did with the sketch, and your fabulous Prisma coloring. I’m so there with you on trying to get things done. I’m not sure if it’s CRS or just TMTD — that would be “too much to do”. I’ve got TMTD and TLTTDI. KWIM?
