Another good day. Friday. FWF....ah, YAY. We have our 10 mile run this Sunday. Psyched. Ready. Just not ready for the 4 AM wake up call we'll have to get to the start on time.
It's a big race. 10,000 or so folks, I think. I'll be out there, a sweating slow moving pebble amongst all the color and speed. In Pink...listening to Pink, and probably singing horribly, but happily.
Oh, but back to the photos. This is my darling husband's birthday card. We celebrated last evening with cake, steak, and asparagas (but not in that order).
Moses could make a card faster with a pick and rock than I can, I think. I mean, he did come up with all those commandments in a short bit, yes? I believe I had Unity stamps and craft materials scattered everywhere before this little gem of a card came together. By looking at it, you'd think it was an easy one. No. For me, never. I fret over everything from the card base (which is cold pressed watercolor paper) to the ink on the image....which I redid 4 times.
The rubber stamp, tho, that was an easy pick. From THIS set on the outside.
And I stamped from THIS set on the inside.
I mentioned on Facebook that Layla found a little turtle yesterday on our street when I was walking her and Oliver.
Kinky is transfixed by the new arrival. Yesterday she even changed her nap location to sit next to the tupperware.
I am not sure if I want to continue the imprisonment of this sweet creature, but he's so tiny. If I put him next to the stream across our street, I just know he will soon be a cat toy (we have a few feral cats around) or a little snack for the fox I see all the time....or restart his same journey across our street... OH! On that thought, I wonder where he was headed and if he is expected and missed by friends or family...
I know, I know....survival of the fittest.
But look at him.
This card is so elegant -- worth all the time and effort, for sure!
Your card is fantastic! Fabulous masculine design. I struggle with masculine all the time but you rocked it.
Cute photo... my gosh, such a tiny creature... so cute...
Happy B-DAy to DH! He has 4 days on me! Mine is the 8th. Bull headed as we can be, just as great when not being stubborn right???? LOL
I am in love with that turtle! I didn't see him that tiny on FB. You did the right thing. He wanted O-U-T! I am also in love with Kinky. When my cats look down AND do the head tilt I totally melt. If I see it from the back I darn near weep it is so stinkin' CUTE! Instead we spend a lot of time on the floor on our bellies kissing the head tilting cats! LOL
Your card is fabulous! Love the simple embossed BG and that rosette is perfect with the stamped sentiment in the center! All the lines coordinate beautifully!!
As for the little turtle, I'm the same way...let them go free if they're capable of surviving on their own! Now, that's not going to be such an easy feat when it comes to my children...LOL!
Hope you did well in the race yesterday...running as well as singing ;)
That little turtle is soooo sweet!!! Your kitty is beautiful and the photo is priceless....wonder what Kinky is thinking???
