Such a Sad Little Birdie

First of all, I am up way to late. I really need to get some housework done, but I have a bad habit of getting up, turning on the computer, and pretty much sitting there all day. I need to get up and start cleaning immediately, or it may be a lost cause again!! My husband Travis has been going on roadtrips for work a lot lately, and right now, he is on his way home from Texas. I never thought I would say this, but I MISS HIM!!! I don't miss the dirty dishes under the bed, his disgusting bathroom habits, or his pile of dirty clothes in front of the hamper, but I miss going to bed at night and laying beside him. In fact, that is probably why I am still up. Gonna have to take some NYQUIL to get some sleep!LOL!! He is leaving again on Tuesday to go to Florida, so I need to have my chores done so I can spend time with him, besides, he owes me a Valentine's dinner.

Anyway, this is my card for the inspiration challenge on SCS. It was hosted by our new host Steph, aka SmilynStef. It was a beautiful art piece, you can see it here. I started with a Basic Black base, then Bordering Blue. I stamped the Geometric BG in black on Creamy Caramel. To give it some depth, I sponged Chocolate Chip around the edges. I then punched out to tabs with the word window punch, sponged them, and put a black brad through them. The round tab was punched out in all three colors. The I miss you stamp is from All Year Cheer and stamped in black. Again, I sponged all the edges with Chocolate Chip. The bird was stamped on Watercolor paper in Stazon Black and was colored using Julie Buhler's No Copics, No Problems. I used Creamy Carmel, and highlighted with Close to Cocoa. The puddle of tears is in bordering blue. My aquapainter was used to lift some of the color and to blend it.
Well, that is all for tonight!! Have a great day!!
