Sunday Night Reminder to Self:

If you need to get up in the middle of the night, for any reason, 
don't sneak a peek at the Mojo Monday Sketch or you won't get back to sleep! 

I shouldn't have peeked!
  And after I did, I should have just made the card and gone back to bed.  
 Instead I played 3 Scrabble games on my Kindle at 5 am while I mentally constructed this card:
Then the cat and I slept on the living room chair for an hour or so before I got up and actually made it.
I'll be drinking a lot of tea today, I'm afraid.
I had printed, colored and glittered this Gerda Steiner digi image last week but never put it on a card.  
Then yesterday I realized I missed the deadline for her challenge 
(which my friend Kitty won - Congrats, girlfriend!).  So I sat it out to use on my Mojo Monday card today.  The sentiment is a CTMH stamp.  The BG is more of the text weight kraft paper I bought by mistake, distressed with chocolate CTMH ink, faux stitched with marker, and mounted on standard white CS.  Just a few tiny dazzles were used as accents.

So without further chit chat, I am entering this card in: 

Our Creative Corner Challenge - No More Shopping Sins (kraft 'text' paper)
Robyn's Fetish Challenge #194 - No patterned paper, CS only
Cards in Envy Challenge - Snowbody Like You Challenge
Time 4 Scrap Challenge #31 - Any Color with Silver or Gold

Now what shall I do today?


  1. This is so cute! I love how you did the border and corners - that's nifty! And, oh, if I could only tell you the nights I lay awake making cards in my mind - it's crazy, isn't it! I don't sleep very well most nights so I make a lot of imaginary cards in bed. Thanks for the shout-out too LOL.

  2. Super cute card. Love your snowman, faux stitching and embossing. Thanks for playing along with us at Cards in Envy.
