Fall-To Layout #176

RJ: I was NOT a happy kitty mommy this morning. RJ found his way back to the top of the refrigerator and knocked off his old food bowl, resulting in it shattering on the kitchen tile and making a very loud noise at 5 AM. I rushed downstairs to check on the situation and yep, it was quite a mess. So, here I am, 5 AM, feeling like #$*& and breaking out the vacuum to clean up the mess so that neither one of us gets hurt. I went back to bed to try to get some restful sleep, only to have my sore throat feel worse when the alarm went off this morning. Hello, sick day.

"At the office": Except you can only sleep for so long, right? So instead of being in front of the TV the whole day to get some actual rest, I got sucked into email and conference calls. I even got an email from my boss, asking me why I was working. Because I clearly have a unhealthy, self-imposed habit of blurring the lines between work life and personal life. I hope I feel well enough to go to the office tomorrow. Being cooped up in the house isn't really all that fun either.

Card: Here's my take on this week's Fall-To Layout (#176). My goal was to use these paper cranes that Robyn gave me for Christmas. They came attached at the beak and feet so I had to cut them out so that they could stand individually. I added some texture to the black panel by heat embossing a Hero Arts background stamp (sadly, it's not very clear in the picture). I stamped the letters individually on a piece of white cardstock and used a circle punch to punch them out and stuck them on the card using foam adhesive.

I also added one of the anniversary cards that I made for an office order.

Card Specs (for crane card):
Embossing powder: Stampendous! in clear
Embossing ink: VersaMark
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Warm Red
Stamps: Hero Arts- Cling Classic Fabric Design (background), Studio G
Paper: g.c.d. Studios- Chianti Collection
Punch: Recollections, We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper, Fiskars Scalloped Sentiment border punch

Oh, Mr. R.J.! Why can't they get into trouble at a normal hour??
Love the crane card and the embossing adds a really cool shine to the background.
Hope you feel better tomorrow!

RJ just has not been a good boy the last couple days. What's up with that? Hope you feel better soon.
