Monday Mode...

It's definitely been a Monday around here this morning.

Jacob tends to start getting ready to go to school (shower included) at about 6:50 am. He has to be out the door at the latest at 7:00 to catch the bus. This morning, he couldn't find his shoes. There is no extra time built into his morning schedule (is it actually a schedule if it's only 10 minutes to shower, dress, shave and eat?!?) to actually look under things, so he missed the bus this morning.

Add to that, Kat has been running a low-grade fever for the last few days because she has a cold and isn't feeling the best. She was NOT thrilled to be hustled out of bed to crawl into her car seat for a run to the high school.

The good news is that I am dressed for the day...not showered, but I am dressed. hehe!
Crazy Monday morning...

I have a card to share with you today. This was a rejected submission to PaperCrafts Magazine using one of their sketches. I'll have another (rejected) version of the sketch to share tomorrow.

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Treasure to Me
*PaperTrey Ink Bitty Dots papers
*Palette Black Noir inkpad
*Fiskars scallop border punch
*Autumn Leaves buttons
*Derwent watercolor pencils
*Nestabilities scallop oval die cut

Instructions to assemble:
1. Stamp the main image onto white cardstock and two corresponding pieces of the patterned paper.
2. Create a bit of the details on the white stamped image using watercolor pencils.
3. Paper piece the remaining parts of the stamp and die cut this piece using the oval die cut.
4. Create the base for the card using the example as your guide.
5. Add buttons and the stamped piece to your card to finish it off.

This is one FANATIC reject! I just love this set and love the colors you used. Maybe they had to many Unity or Ippity submissions and they didn't wait to change the name of the magazine.

I can so relate except Evan has a little more time since he doesn't have to take the bus. But I did have to hustle a sick 2 year old as well out the door to get him to school. Erin has a cough and runny nose. No fever yet thank goodness. And hopefully we'll bypass any kind of ear infection!
Hope Kat feels better! Can't wait for warm weather :0p
