CPS #177

Ahhh. A full night's sleep with air conditioning really makes a difference. It results in less disgruntlement in the morning.

Nothing exciting from today, except that I totally missed a rain shower. That's the problem with having a totally interior office with no windows. I have no idea what's going on outside.

My cousin from Taiwan is here for a visit. She brought some treats with her: pineapple cake, mochi, milk tea mix...I guess I'm going to the gym tomorrow (I'm taking the day off). I hope that Anna is teaching. I missed her spin class on Monday because I didn't want to deal with "no traffic light" traffic. Maybe I'll go see a movie too. I hear that Inception is good.

Ok, so you remember how yesterday, I rubbed a little ink on the back of the card? Oops. Time for some recycling. I chopped the card up so that I could use the hearts at the bottom for this CPS #177 card challenge. The part of the card that stumped me was the middle red piece. Heat embossing was going to be a little messy because I already adhered the cardstock to the card base. Putting more patterned paper was going to compete with the hearts and the red paper already there. Thinkthinkthink. Ah ha! I remembered these silver brads that I got from a recent trip to Michaels. There we go. Some dimension to finish off the card. I think I was a little liberal in my interpretation of the sketch, but it works.
Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Rouge, Warm Red, StazOn in Jet Black
Stamp: The Paper Company Studio- Whimsy Greetings (sentiment), K.I. Memories- Crazy Love (hearts)

We are approaching blog post #200. Stay tuned for a giveaway! :)

Air Conditioning makes such a difference! Although I've found that several fans can create the same feeling!

Also - I too have a totally interior office... It stinks! Although I find that people want to spend less time crowding my small space because of the lack of windows...
