Back Again!

Three days in a row! Okay...for you 'die hard' card people, just two days in a row.

Wanna know what I did today....well I'm gonna tell you anyway...we bought a new mattress and box spring that was supposed to be delivered between 8am and 1pm...no biggie. I've got lots of vacation left so i take the day off. I'll colour in the morning, get the mattress set up and run some errands in the afternoon. WELL....you wanna know what time that delivery got here....4PM...yes 4PM! How awful is that? You know why it happened...I'll tell ya, it's because they CONTRACT out their deliveries!!!! When are companies gonna realize that they should NEVER contract out services that are essential to their business and customer satisfaction. But in the end, do they REALLY care? Probably not because it is all money to them...they PRETEND to care about the customers time but if they really cared, they would have made every attempt to have that delivery here on time. I hope I get a survey!

WHEW! Now that I got that vent out of my system I'll get to the real reason you are here. It is a simple card today, gotta throw some of those in there from time to time. This Stamping Bella image is appropriately called hat and MITTS. It is an older image, but new to me and I just acquired it recently.

I stamped it with memento black ink on bella's BESTEST paper and coloured primarily with pencils but used a base of copic markers in BOOOO, OOO first. Lots of glitter and some dots of silver pearl pen spruced it up. Not to mention what looks like a dark border, is actually silver foiled paper...hard to capture on camera but really pops in person and looks oh so crisp! I always try to avoid the traditional Christmas green and red and I just LOVE the contemporary combo of silver, white and soft blue.

Well, that's it for today. Let's hope I have a WONDERFUL night's sleep on my new mattress and all my aches and pains will miraculously be gone in the morning!

Gorgeous card! I love that image. Hope all your aches and pains are gone. Have you tried the buckwheat hull pillow? There is a company in Ottawa that makes them and they are very good for the neck and shoulders.
