Never Enough Hours in a Day

Does anyone else ever feel this way? I feel like I am busy all day long and I never have enough time!! This week has been no different. We are crazy busy at work. My husband was sick last week so we are still playing catch-up from that. Between prepping for classes, running my daughter from school to her activities, work, maintaining a household, taking care of the dog...  the list is never ending!! Shheeeshh. I'm tire-ing myself out just thinking about it!! I better stop blabbing and get on with some new cards to show.

Card # 1
For the current sketch at Card Patterns, the Pink Elephant - pastel challenge, and the Cards easter challenge

Love this bunny. It's a stamp from Whippersnapper and I colored it with Copics.

Card # 2
For the current sketch at OCC
This owl is from Cornish Heritage Farms and again I colored it with Copics

Card # 3
I used the sketch from the Sweet Stop :

I'm just realizing now that I forgot to adhear the sentiment!! Oopps!! I'll go do that!! It's supposed to be in the lower right hand corner of the image. (just image that it's there!!)

Card # 4
For the Crazy 4 Challenges sketch :

I have about 30 of these little monsters already colored (I intented to make invitations with them, but never got around to it - I know - I'm bad!!) So I thought I would pull one out and make a boy card. I think it turned out cute!!

Card # 5
I used the Clean and Simple sketch and the Saturday Spotlight challenge : coffee - as our inspiration

This card uses that paper I was talking about the other day. DCWV - Linen Closet. Love it!! And when I photgraphed it, that patterned paper really looks like linen!! Did I mention - I love this new line of paper??!! LOL!! I kept the colors all warm and creamy, which is what I think about when I think about coffee. I'm not a coffee drinker myself - I'm a tea girl - but I think this card look great being fairly neutral and brown.

Okay, well gotta run!! Check off a few more things before it's Kindergarten time!!

Have a good day!!
