Stamping for Sanity!!!!

I got up at 6AM this morning and started stamping. I needed a little sanity after this past week! Yesterday was another crazy day! Can you believe that I actually locked my keys in the car?! And of course I did it while I was in a hurry and had all 4 kids! I took Danika with me to my MOPS meeting. She was too sweet and just sat next to me the whole time eating strawberries. Even when I got up to do my testimony- she stayed put. Giving my testimony was a very rewarding experience but it was also very emotionally draining. A nap would have been nice! But when I got home I had to cut all the paper for my class. Then when Laynee got up from her nap- she had a fever. About an hour later- I got a call from Kyler's school that he had a fever of 104! With 3 out of 4 four of my kids sick- I decided to cancel my class : ( And then off to Urgent Care. If you are keeping count- this is the third time in the past 2 weeks! The doctor just thinks that Laynee and Kyler have a virus and should get lots of rest. Easier said than done!!! By the time we got all the kids fed and to bed- I crashed!!! And so when I woke up this morning I could hear my stamps calling to me. I had to come!!!! I finished one card (which I will show you tomorrow) before the kids woke up. The girls look fine today!!! Kyler still has a cold. But he is running around and acting fine!

Anywho- here is a card that I made on Thursday. I LOVE the way it turned out! I cased a card from Stamper Camper's blog. Just a couple notes: I do not have the nestibilities so I used my small oval punch to add the scallops behind the main image. I used my blender pen and re-inkers to color on the stamp. And the card size is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 AGAIN!!!!
