Wee Memories Challenge #66

Even though I had the day off for Labor Day, I checked my work email this evening and found an email from the Executive Director. Apparently, there's some minor flooding in the main building. One of the accounting staff went in this weekend and came across all the water. Yikes! The mini crisis won't really affect me much because I've been working in the other building since earlier this year (although, people have made fun of me numerous times about how often they see me in the main building, whether it's to get meeting food leftovers or to chat with people).

My body woke me up around 6:20 this morning, just in time to feed RJ and give him his medication. Today was the first day that I've noticed less sneezing. Thank goodness because cat boogers are gross. After breakfast, I went to Staples to get a custom order printed so that I could finally assemble everything. I have been working with this Etsy customer since August 13, so I'm going to be really happy to ship this order off and put a check mark next to this item on my to-do list.

Productivity took a nose dive after I finished assembling everything. RJ was taking a nap on my bed, so I followed his example. We sleep in a similar fashion- belly up, limbs everywhere. I put the towel on the bed in an attempt to keep the kitty hair in one place, but that's probably a lost cause.
Here's my take on Wee Memories Challenge #66: "Just use any sentiment in your creation or as the "focal" point of your creation!" I wanted to make a card for my friend Page and since she's a fan of the Georgia Tech yellow jackets, I pulled out some Dear Lizzy paper with some bees on it (meh, that's close enough). Since the challenge focused on sentiments, I wanted to create my own sentiment using some alphabet stamps. Yeah, so the one that I came up with is kinda dorky, but I'm sure that Page would get a kick out of it. I also dug out my circle dies for this card as well, another tool that I haven't used in a while.
Card Specs:
