I'ts Been a Poopy Day

Just rough all the way around! Started out with a teenage rage moment with my teen, was tried to be "scared" into having extra work done on my car at KwikKar 4 times in the span of thirty minutes when all I wanted was an oil change (and don't EVER go there), and then the night has been book-ended with another moment of teenage rage. UGH!! However, before the last rage moment, we were given some tickets to a Donkey Basketball game up at the teenager's high school, so we took the little girls to that (teenager stayed home because she can't dare be seen with us--HER PARENTS). Back to the game---You talk about hilarious!!!! Sorry, but none of my pictures turned out very good. I needed to use my regular film camera with some 800 speed film, but I just brought the Cybershot. The game was a fundraiser for the Senior Class that pitted the teachers against the seniors. The seniors kicked the teachers a$$es!!! (teehee) It was a much needed break from a poopy day--Thanks JoAnn! (my neighbor who gave us the tickets)
I was supposed to participate in a challenge today for smARTworks that required us to make a card with a flower(s) on it. However, after the KwikKar incident, I wasn't in a flowery mood (black flowers, maybe! grr!), so here is a smARTworks card I made a couple of weeks ago. It's got a bitty couple of flowers, but highlights a prima flower. You think that will count? This card is really soft and pretty in real life. I love the look of the white on white layers and the real stitching all the way around it. I chose to use this set a little differently than it was intended. It looks pretty springy, but I conformed it into a baby card by stamping the bunny in pink and not coloring it in. I gave it a soft pop of color with the sagey green scalloped oval behind the bunny. Prima flower, pink baubles, pale pink and white gingham ribbon (ha, Jen!! I guess sometimes it's still useful!), and a soft sentiment in pink made the card "just right" for me! Does it look babyish? Check out what the other girls did: Susan, Heidi, Dina, Trish, and Donna.
I've got some really fun news to share in the next few days...can you guess what it is? Not pregnant--I've had work done to stop that from happening (41, remember?) Stay tuned!!

TIP: It's hard to get away from stamping the sentiment on all your cards in black. Try stamping the sentiment in a color that complements the card.

Stamps: Bunny Joy, Sentiment set (both smARTworks)
Ink: Pretty in Pink
Paper: Whisper White, Bazzill
Other: Pink/White Gingham, Prima flower, Baubles, Scallop Oval Punch, SU Scallop Circle Punch, Paper Piercer/Mat pack, Dimensionals, Sewing Machine


  1. Oh Susie can I relate to the teenage rage thing. I sympathize girlfriend. Don't you wonder sometimes when that chubby faced cherub you you raised turned into a sarcastic grump? I know I do. Hang in there girl.

  2. Yes, this card works! I really like the softness of it and the uncolored bunny. That donkey basketball looks pretty hilarious! I know what you mean about the oil change too BTW. Every time I go before they are even able to say anything I just tell them "If you find something wrong, print it out on my receipt and I will have my husband look it over. I don't want ANYTHING done today other than my oil change." Usually works for me. Sometimes they try to explain what is on the sheet but I always but them off and say I can read. {grin} They think women are so easy to push over!

  3. Donkey basketball looks like a do they deal with um...mistakes by the donkeys...LOL. Hope your day today is better!!

  4. That's funny about the donkey basketball game. The highschool I went to used to do this exact same thing!
    The card is beautiful! Thank you for sharing.

  5. OMG How hilariously funny! And yes, the card counts. A flower is a flower no matter how small.

  6. Precious card Susie!! I love the way you used those scallop layers - very inventive!!!

  7. I had never heard of donkey basketball until we were invited to a game last night; it was hilarious!
    I love your artwork; thanks for sharing your talent with all of us.
