I'm Being Invaded.....

by screaming girls!! That's right, it is time for another sleep over, and I swear, the more they are over, the more I wanna SLEEP!!LOL!! So, what would possess a normally sane person to let not 1, not 2, not 3, but 5 girls under the age of 9 stay over for the a nutshell, it is like my stamping, everything in EXCESS!!!LOL!! This time should be better though, no storms in the forecast, and my DH isn't out of town(although he wishes he was) so I will have help(as much help as a man can be). Don't get me wrong, I love my girls, but it is hard to enjoy them when they are ALL here, and I feel bad if only a couple come over at a time because then I feel like the others are left out. I swear if I could only keep them a couple at a time, I would have them all the time, but 5, it takes weeks to mentally prepare, and weeks afterwards to repair the damage. But anyway, enough babble!! This is my card for today's Sketch For You To Try. I used the Simply Special stamp from Paper Pretties and stamped it twice, once on Very Vanilla and once on my DP. I cut out the watering can and paper pieced it. The flower was also stamped yet again and cut out and colored. The rest of the image was colored with my SU markers. My paper is from the Paper Loft and is SUPER YUMMY. I used the back side for the watering can and the flower center, and the reverse for the flower and the layer under the main image. I used some chocolate taffeta ribbon and Soft Subtles buttons on the side and pierced a border around the whole thing-by the way, totally and shamelessly stole that from my pal Jody. I saw it on a card she did the other day, and loved the way it looked, and this sketch completely worked for it!! For the sentiment, I used my Chocolate Chip marker and only colored what I wanted to show up so that I could separate it. I love the way it turned out. Be sure to check out what Jen, Amy R, Amy S, Carole, Shannan and Susan have done with this awesome sketch, and check out Jen's blog to see the card I made exclusively for it!
So, that is it for me now, right now(this was set up ahead of time to post), I should be at work, but after work, the invasion will take place...wish me luck...I am gonna need it.....COME ON HANNAH MONTANA DVD-DON'T FAIL ME NOW!!!
