Good News, Bad News

Good news, bad news...bad news, first.

Bad news:
  • Series finale of 24 was on tonight. Holy cow, how intense! Like more intense than normal, but I suppose the producers want to pack as much punch into it until perhaps a movie comes along. I almost cried, just because I felt so badly for everyone involved.
  • I placed a crafty order on May 2. I got the package in the mail today, BUT the items in the mailer were not the ones that I ordered! I knew something was up when I noticed that the package was light. I get that mistakes happen, but I was SO looking forward to receiving a new set of stamps and a new paper pack since I had ordered them 3 weeks ago! I hope this mishap can be resolved soon.
Good news:
  • I went to spin tonight. I was really inspired by some of the people in the class who did a triathlon yesterday. Yesterday! And they came to spin class tonight! Now, THAT'S dedication.
  • I sold 7 cards in one Etsy order today. Whoo hoo!
  • I assembled 40 binders at work today for an upcoming workshop. I'll be so happy to hand them off to the UPS guy tomorrow or Wednesday.
  • One of my co-workers gave me his side of sweet potato fries that came with his lunch. Just handed them to me! Yum. Some cinnamon sugar and marshmallow fluff would have been a great addition, but hey, I'm grateful for a surprise foody gift.
For today's card, I wanted to make something on the simple side. Ironically, this card took me 2 tries to get it right. During my first try, I added some stamped brown flowers. I think the flowers made it look really cluttered. Too bad there isn't really an eraser for ink. The stamps are from an Ebay auction win that I won last week. They also came in the mail today and fortunately the seller checked the mailer before she sent the package off. *cough, cough*

Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Burnt Sienna, Blush Rose, Tangerine, Yellow Ochre, Chestnut Roan
