Finally something new!!!

I can honestly say that I am supremely jealous of moms who handle household duties, being a mom, and crafting. I'm even more jealous of those with full-time jobs who do it all. I'm not one of them!!! This card has been in-process for 3 days. Seriously!! It also doesn't help that I kept changing my mind on how to do it all.

The card was based upon the Color Inspiration challenge at Kristina Werner's blog. I have kept track of her color challenges for a few months...always just dying to do one. I write them down every week, and always run out of time to finish them! This week I told my husband that I was DOING the challenge. I started stalking her blog Tuesday, patiently waiting for it to post. And when it finally posted sometime on Wednesday, I was completely stumped!! I could do anything with four of the colors, but that dad-gum riding hood red!! Ugh. So this card was seriously something that I changed a bunch of times. Had it on a black base, then the red, then bashful blue...had a different main focal image, changed the hardware....crazy card!!

So here is my final product. I think its pretty cute. I made the mistake of asking DH what he thought...and his response was, "uhhh, its alright. I don't know these craft things!!!". :-)

This is a very nice card. Sounds like you are doing well with your juggling! I am a grandmother of two now, but have 4 grown children and two daughter-in-laws. I love OK City. My son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren live in Yukon. Have a great weekend!

This is a great card.

Hey don't worry, I work full time, have a child, and craft, but other things get missed, like sleep or cleaning! lol!
