Superstar

Yesterday was a bad day. I was sick, I had to unexpectedly do a favor for someone (which isn't fun when you're not feeling well), and my mojo took a vacation without telling me. This card was all I could come up with, and it's just not doing it for me, but it's all I've got to show you, so here it is.

I used FTL50 for my layout, and since I used a glitter pen on the sunglasses and some shimmery silver paper, it also works for the Stamp Simply challenge this week.

Stamps: Sparkling Summer (SU), Starlight Starbright (Verve)
Paper: Basic Gray, PTI Raspberry Fizz, PTI white, silver (unknown--RAK)
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: circle punches, ribbon (PTI), glitter pen (Spica), pearls (Michaels), dimensionals

Love the shimmery glasses Ann! Hope you feel better soon!

Considerably at once - when do because it is "necessary", instead of because " want"
The nice card, but does not suffice something (probably love or desire)
The excellent technics of execution (here you the master), but details do not play together....
(But it only my opinion)
Thanks...

So cute, Ann! Love the detail of the glittery glasses and the pearls on them as well as under the sentiment.

Hope you are feeling much, much better today. Teachers just shouldn't get sick on summer break!

Well, I think it's 'ausome'! Sorry you were feeling bad. Hope you're much better today. I don't think your mojo has gone anywhere!
I, on the other hand, had a terrible mojo day and didn't get anything posted. I used a new stamp that I just bought, went to color it and the ink smeared, messed up the colors, so I tore it up and went to bed! But....today is a new day :)

Courtney Baker said...

Okay I just love the detail you added with the glitter! I think that is so fun. I hope you get to feeling better. Isn't it awful when your sick, but not so sick that you can cancel everything?
