A break from my ladder duties....

Well, actually, today it's more likely my 'down on the floor' duties! I'm working on the lower half of a wall right now! I took a short break to work on the 365 Cards challenge for the day. Since it contains butterflies, I am also entering it in this week's Flutter By Challenge. Today's challenge is "Ad Inspired". Amy found an ad with this photo:







and challenged us to be inspired to create while checking out this ad photo.





Here is my card:







The small stamped area's say "oh, yeah" and "u rock". All sentiment stamps are TAC. Ink is Versafine Black, Adirondack Denim Blue, and Stampin Up Groovy Guava. I used the Groovy Guava on the background stamp. It's an old wood mounted stamp with no name on it. The striped DP is Cloud 9 Designs, and I added a couple of thin blue stripes... I used my Tombow markers on the Happy Birthday stamp so that I could two-tone it.




Back to work I go. Sorry I'm being neglectful of your blogs. I promise to make up for it when this remodel job is done. You will actually be quite tired of me then!!!




Have a good night...

You'll definitely have to share pictures of whatever it is you're doing when you're done!

Great take on the inspiration piece, Patti! And, oh yeah, YOU rock!

That's an interesting thought for the day. Gives new meaning to wearing clean underwear when you leave the house. LOL

Love and hugs,
Lisa

Great job on the challenge. When you finish your walls come on over I have a few that have been neglected.

You nailed it! My husband has a painting business. He would never let me near a paintbrush. I wonder why?
