It's Tuesday, yay...

Well, it's Tuesday. Can you tell I'm thrilled...not. I'm a bit tired and crabby today. The house was really hot last night and I didn't sleep well, even with a fan blowing on me. We are trying to save money by not turning the air on in the house until we absolutely have to. I think it was 78 in the house when I went to bed...too hot! Plus as I laid in bed, my toe just throbbed in pain. I hope the pain goes away soon. I didn't think it looked as bad this morning but I am babying it BIG TIME!
The good thing is, today is our one day this week when we have absolutely nothing planned. No appointments, no swimming lessons, nothing. BLISS! Maybe I will stamp...or clean :(
Here is a card I made for the JacksonBelle Embellishments Inkadinkado challenge. The challenge was you had to make a card using Inkadinkado stamps that JB carries in her store.
I haven't used this Birds Assortment set in a while so I gave it a go. I also used the Inka set "Flowery Flourishes" (not sure if she carries that set or not). For the sentiment, I used the "what's the word, bird" sentiment from the Bird Assortment set but I cut it up into single words. I've found that with clear stamp sets this is totally ok to do as they fit back together and line up fairly easily on acrylic blocks. I colored the birds with Prismacolor markers. The paper is SU and the gems are from ??. I should probably stop taking stuff out of their orignial packages so that I know where they came from.
What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you all have a wonderful day!
