What day is it?

Hi, all!

I used to laugh at retired people who didn't know what day it was.  I think I can already understand and it hasn't even been a full week yet since I retired!  Without the demands of work, there isn't really anything to stand out as a specific day now.  Luckily, I'm on the computer so much, I think that will help!

I have a birthday card to share today.  This was another done with my old Hugware digi's and it was an image I always loved.  I did it in bright, happy colors to go with the cute little face.  Sorry, Melissa, I know you don't like people cards, but there is a bird on this one, so maybe that will count as a "critter".....

I colored her with the usual Prismacolor brush markers and matted her with a Spellbinder die. Some faux stitching around the card & she was done.   As soon as things calm down, I need to get my sewing machine out & see what the problem is so I can start using it for "real" stitching again!

Well, I have a lot of cards to make & very little time, so I had better get rolling! I need to do some "critter" cards for my daughter!   lol    Catch you all later!



  1. So much crafting to be done and so little time!

  2. Well, it's a good thing you won't run out of cute stuff to color anytime soon. I'm sure you've got plenty and I can't wait to see it. I'm pretty sure Melissa is going to love this card. The bird is darling and the little country girl is a pretty cute critter, herself! I know you've been busy and you're still in the catching your breath stage, but it must be wonderful. I'm going to enjoy every minute of your retirement!

  3. You question is a day late, Mike! (I couldn't resist.) Your card is awesome with the yellow and red. Love the die and your little girl. Pretty!

  4. Enjoy your retirement Sherri, I would love to get to sit in your craftroom and keep busy instead of go to work. Yourcard is super cute.

  5. Sherri congratulations on your retirement. I forecast lots of craft projects in your future!!!! lol Wish I could join you. This card is super sweet. Love your colors and the beautiful image.
