Just wanted to say....

Sorry I've been MIA this week, I've been feeling a little run down and tired. Every mother/domestic goddess can relate to how I've been feeling lately, with my DH working so much I've been trying to keep things together and feel like I can't keep up. Our youngest Connor has been cutting more teeth and has not been sleeping through the night and has been crabby just like his mommy! Add to that and I pulled a muscle in my shoulder (probably from carrying him to much) and I'm having a hard time sleeping at night because I'm a side sleeper.

Onto the card, I broke down and bought myself some more Stella's, I couldn't help it!!! I LOVE STELLA and all of this waiting for the new SU catty is killing me! The card base is Summer Sun, then Green Galore and then I added strips of the K & Company Berry Sweet designer paper (what a great deal that 8 1/2" x 8 1/2" pad of paper was for $6.99 and I still have a ton left). Then I did something I said I would never do..............I actually sewed on my card, and it was fun! I used my Copics to color Gossipy Stella, cut her out and embossed her and the scalloped mat added pop dots and some bling and flowers and I was done. Whats so great is that I could use this card for anything (well almost anything), on the front it says just wanted to say... and on the inside it could say, I miss you, I love you, you're the greatest! I think I'll send this card to myself, LOL!

Thanks for visiting :)

That is the cutest darnd card evah! I love the bright colors and everything about it. Perhaps you should address an envelope and mail to yourself. Just think about the smile you will have when you get it back in the mail! Hope your shoulder feels better. Try to have a fun weekend.

I love this card Lynn; great job! Hoppe things get better and you can get some sleep soon (I complately relate as Kiah has decided playtime is 3 am). Someday soon I might not be exhausted and get a chance to make a card myself.

Another wonderful Stella card! I'm almost convinced to buy a Stella....you make them look so cute. I never even noticed the little mouse until I saw your card.
Love all the details, the sewing, the flower, the colors!!
Wonderful!!
Hope you are feeling more rested now!

I am so feeling you! I've been going through the exact same thing. I have a 2 & 3 year old that have been fighting sleep like crazy and I am so worn out. Plus, my DH has been working crazy hours too so I am feeling you. {{{HUGS}}} This card is gorgeous!!! I love Stella!!!

I hope both you and Connor are feeling better, nothing goes right when you don't get enough solid sleep!! I'm glad you got some more Stella's because I simply adore what you do with them.

I've really been out of the loop, I saw lots of new Bella creations today!!
