Pleasant Poppies Thank You Card
Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Get Up And Walk Away
I was eating lunch the other day and fell into my usual habit of turning on the tv while I was eating. Of course, even though there are hundreds of channels to watch, there was absolutely nothing worthwhile on! But, unfortunately, that didn't stop me. I chose some ridiculous dating show and let it blabber at me while I ate my salad and bowl of corn/beans/salsa. Once I was done eating it was very tempting to just keep sitting there staring at the tv screen. I even found myself getting up, grabbing a few squares of chocolate out of the pantry and heading back to the couch. But once I sat down, reason took over and I turned off that dumb television show and got up and walked away! I am very proud of myself! Instead of letting my mind melt I actually started editing photos for my blog :) Sometimes you need to get up and walk away in order to get yourself going!
Today's card was another scrap card as I begin to unearth the craft table (I know it's under there somewhere!). I had stamped the Pleasant Poppies stamp onto watercolor paper with Staz-On and watercolored the image ages ago and now it turned into a perfect panel for this card. I paired it with some designer paper (patterns stack) and a sentiment from Petite Pairs. I hope you like it and I hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with opportunities to get up and walk away and get yourself going!!!!!
