Buzzing By!

Happy Friday, everyone! We hope you are having a wonderful week so far. I don't know about anyone else, but we're definitely looking forward to the weekend. I think we need some time recuperating from our guests. Not that they were tiring, but the trip to the airport, at 4:00 in the morning, sure was. We did learn one thing, though. The best time to travel on I-5N is any time before 5:00am. We were rather surprised on our way back when the north-bound lane was full of cars.
So, anyway, it seems as if it's been a while since we've had a "crafty" post here. And today was a perfect day to spend crafting. We had a few orders to ship out today, and a few more to finish up. And, it rained for the first time in 35 days. (And who would think, people here forget how to drive in the rain...) Today's project is a little card we put together:
This isn't even remotely close to what I had in mind when I started this card. After taking a much needed nap, we went to Joann's for some envelopes for birthday invitations. However, they are having their Founder's Day sale this week. So naturally, we ended up with more than we went in for. One of our new purchases was the Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge. (It's been tempting us since it came out). When I started it, it was going to be a Halloween card. And then a banner. And then a hello card with a rosette, but this is what the finished product looks like. And I couldn't bee happier! (get it?! oh so funny...)
OK, so I'll admit that the card did get messed up a bit. Luckily, the light paper lent itself to a quick fix, and now you can't even tell. (Unless you look real close. Or know where it went wrong and just stare at it, thinking that everyone else will notice it too.) These easel cards are fun to make because they look super fancy, but are really quick to make. I had planned on adding some more embellishments to the outside, but figured it would be bulky enough, with the eyes and the pieces popping out:
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend and join us tomorrow for another Cupcake Saturday!
