Sleepy...




Cardinal's are trying to win the ball game! DS lives in California, and DH is flying out tomorrow to go to some games this week out there - they should have a good time, hopefully!

This will be a super short post, as the old eyelids have been open since 6 this a.m.! I tried and tried to think of something really unique for today's challenge at 365 Cards. In Pam's words: "Today's challenge is called Double Duty because I want you to make a card that doubles as something else.... examples would be a bookmark, a place card, or some sort of pocket card. HOWEVER - NO GIFT CARD HOLDERS OR MONEY HOLDERS!" I finally gave up, and just made a little photo frame for desktop, countertop, etc...



Used cardboard covered with Provo DP from Big Lots, Sentiment is from Great Impressions, Cute little butterfly, once again, is a Megan (Shirley's granddaughter) creation!, and used Colorbox Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink to stamp image. Cute little scallop at the bottom of image was a gift from Jan MacGowan, who is a Stampin' Up Demonstrator.



Hope you like my little project!

See you all tomorrow, and hopefully, with brain cells working!

~Thought I'd leave you with this blessing tonight! Just prior to getting dark, DD came in and said there was a double rainbow.... sure enough, this is what we saw! Blessings, everyone...

Thanks Patti for you sweet thoughtfulness. You are always such an encouragement. The rainbow reminds me of God's promises and it a wonderful reminder to put my trust in him during the circumstances our extended family now faces. Thanks for being such a true friend!

Love your gorgeous creation!! Love your frame!! Great job on the challenge! Awesome colors and design!
