Wonderful Wednesday!

Well it's Wednesday and I'm halfway through the week! I have a ton of housecleaning to do because I found out last night that we are going to have some young guests dropping in to play with my 3 year old! Since I have never met my guests, I have no idea exactly how old they are, or what they are like. That also means I have to  go crawling around on my stomach - mission impossible style - just in case! I also have to grocery shop, run a few errands, and fix my mothers showerhead (in the next town over) all before my guests get here. Oh...and one more very important thing...I don't know what time they will be here! That all said...I can only say one thing to explain this whole saga... My darling husband made these arrangements.

Believe it or not, I actually am a positive thinker (self delusional huh?)! I really think I'll be able to handle all of this! I mean seriously, just because I was still in my stamp room playing with my Copics and making cards after 2:30am, doesn't mean I will be tired right? Just another three POTS of coffee, and I'll be able to open my eyes. Then and only then will I start running around like the hamster-on-crack that I always am!

Okay, so the real reason most of you come and check in on my blog is that you wanna see what kinda creative things I've been up to. Well, I made this card after I opened a swap envelope from my good friend Su, and these GORGEOUS felt flowers fell out! I have no idea where she got them, but I do believe I will have to make a roadtrip to get some more! I used Bugaboo Stamps Kitty Basket Stamp from the new line Jodie introduced last week. I made this card especially to take part in Crafty Creations Blog Hop, -and because Bugaboo Stamps is a sponsor! But of course all the little extra deets make it perfect for my ever growing challenge list! This one was just SO fun to play with! A special thanks to Su G, Jodie, & all the folks making up these challenges! Keep 'em coming!
