Roaming Around In The Middle of The Night!

Yep, that would be me.....sometimes conditions aren't just right for sleeping and this night was cut short by Niki. ( 11 yr. old Pug)   I've been up since 2:30 and now everyone else is asleep but me!  I'm thinking I might squeeze in a nap this afternoon!

While I've been roaming around, I finished a card for my Grandson for Halloween.  He may be too old for trick-or-treating, but never too old to receive a card and a couple of bucks from his grandmother! 

I used a Mo's Digital Pencil image that I downloaded and printed onto watercolor paper.  I just think he is too cute!  I colored the image with Distress Inks and used Distress Inks to add color around my image.  Next I cut out the image using a Spellbinders Die and distressed the edges with Distress Inks also.  Can you tell.....I just love Ranger Distress Inks!  I matted onto Gina K Designs card stock and on the black I roughed up the edges.  I found this paper yesterday and thought it looked like Halloween so I used that and mounted it on black.  Next.....tie a bow and pull it all together with a few dew drops and your finished.  Can you tell...I didn't wait for the glue to dry clear behind my dew drops?  It looks a little funky now, but when it totally dries it will look just fine! 

Now I'm off for another cup of coffee.....Lord knows I'm gonna need it this morning!  When it is time to be getting up, I'll be getting sleepy!  Sometimes I think I'm like a little baby with it's days and nights mixed up!  Once I'm awake, that's it.....I have to get up.  I think it is a carry over from all those years of working.

I hope your day is filled with happiness and many smiles, and whatever you find yourself doing, please find time to breathe!

Your grandson will love this card!
I do hope you get that nap. My youngest was up at 4 this morning, then had himself a nice little nap from 9 to 9:30--the little monkey! We have speech therapy this afternoon, so no nap for me today. It'll just have to be an early night with a book!
