Hey there all! Today's challenge over at 365 Cards is a continuation on a theme that will be running all week. You have seen Gloria's 3 P's and Audrey's 3 R's. My challenge (and yours should you choose to take it) is the 3 G's; Green, Glitter and Grosgrain!!
Here is what I came up with:
My card ended up a lot more elegant than I had originally planned, but I still like it. I started with green cardstock and stamped the first green medallions. I then overlapped them with some cream ink medallions and sprinkled glitter over it all. The cream ink helped all that glitter stick!
Then I added in my black elements which include my grosgrain ribbon. I love these new labels die cuts I got and find them quite useful! Add in a little more bling and you have an elegant birthday card. 3 G's: done, done and done!
Ok so here is a baby update: My DH should be coming home today. I will find out if they will really let him leave since he has been running into a lot of snags with the execution of his design (which he is doing for the broadcast of the Olympics in Canada) So, IF they don't make him stay a few extra days to problem solve, then hopefully I will see the doc. tomorrow and try to get this labor started for the weekend. Of course there is also Parent Teacher Conferences that need to be done and my 3 yr. olds birthday party, but I should be able to get a baby out during all of that right ; ) And of course if DH doesn't get to come home until the weekend, I am just going to try and hold tight until he can be here. I will let you ALL know the minute our new one arrives!!
Overall I feel pretty good. I usually have a productive day and then a tired day, but all in all life is still moving along and I don't have a lot of pain or frustration (knock on wood!) and considering my DH is gone and also SO stressed with work (oh and the fact that yesterday I couldn't get ahold of him and really thought he was hurt or something) I am holding it together quite well.
So that's it in a nutshell. Can't wait to get the next phase of life started. Should be exciting and painful and fun and tiring and you know.... like having a baby!
Thanks for all of you checking in on me and seeing how I am doing. I hope to keep the cards coming so keep checking back!
Have a great Wednesday!
