Case of the Mondays

I'm having a case of the Mondays. I didn't sleep well last night, and that's probably because my sleep cycle got mixed up during my afternoon nap. It's gross, muddy, and rainy outside. My work computer freaked out in the middle of a conference call that I was responsible for taking notes for. And to top it off, I've been battling a headache for most of the day. Fortunately, someone out there invented Advil. Whoever you are, can I give you a hug? I'm hoping tomorrow is better. There is no such thing as having a "case of the Tuesdays," right?

I did have some happy customers today: the person that ordered the Lemonade Kisses card and the co-worker that wanted the alpaca card from Saturday's post. I love seeing the expressions on people's faces when they see what I've come up with. It definitely makes me feel good to see my work appreciated. :D I also got an Etsy sale through Twitter, which is really rare for me. Oh, and ANOTHER good thing that happened today was that my cousin arrived from Taiwan. She'll be visiting for a few days. In her suitcase was filled with Taiwanese bakery bread and chocolate from Holland. Suh-WEET!

On to today's card. I dunno why I keep reaching for the lizard stamp. I don't even like real lizards. They kinda creep me out with their beady eyes. I was looking at some card sketches this evening for some inspiration. I found one that incorporated 3 similar elements and shut the window down because I wanted to put my own spin on the sketch. There's a lot going on in the card, but sometimes I just can't do simple. Ok, ok. More often than just sometimes.

Card Specs (lizard):

I love your gecko/lizard card - Too Cute! I like how you can only see portions of him in the he's moving around on the card and you are getting glimpses of him scurrying around.
