Thank you!

So, starting to get back in the crafting groove - hurray!!  I made this card for my hubby's boss who hosted a bbq at his house this weekend.  I had a great time even though I had to leave early to go in to work.

This card is a change from my normal dimensions - 6.5 x 3.25.  I actually like using this size and will be trying it again.  The sketch is from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 77 which can be found here.  Luckily this card will be hand delivered as there are little parts sticking out both side.  I like it - but the postman may not.  It's hard to tell in the picture but I used a popdot on the hummingbird to give a little dimension.

Paper - Cardstock: PTI Stamper's Select White, New Leaf, Lemon Tart.  Patternend: CTMH

Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black

I am a bad wife...

So, today is my hubby's birthday and I didn't have a card for him until just now.  I just haven't had any inspiration at all to create.  And I think the pressure of knowing I HAD to make a card for today was just making things worse.  So now it's done...and I kinda like it.  Please tell me I'm not the only one who gets in these slumps?

The card is based off of the SSSC76 which can be found here.  The super cute cupcake stamp is from CTMH and it was colored with copics.
