Things can only get Better!

Hi Friends,

Well it's been one of those mornings for me, when nothing is going according to my plan.  I was very excited to meet with my good friend Sandra and do some colouring today but as luck would have it, the freezing rain has cancelled those plans.  So then, I get the kids in the car to go to school and find that the car is making an awful noise and pulling to the left.  So when, I get to school to check it out, I notice a big fat flat tire.  I am not far from home, so I slowly make my way home to have a  phone message waiting.   I had left a message at the hair salon to get my hair coloured (to hide the grey) and the only available appointment is for today at 3pm.  With no wheels and freezing rain that ain't gonna happen!  By now, it's 9:30am and I decide to head into my craft room because if anything can turn this day around, it's crafting!  So the card I got for you  is what I could of looked like today if adults were permitted to do so without the fear of being committed!  This card has been entered in The Craft Place Challenge - Anything Goes.

This little tyrant is from Stampin Bella and the papers are by DCWV called Latte.  I stamped him on neenah cardstock with memento ink and then coloured him with copics.  I added liquid glass to his overall button, pockets and the heels of his socks.  The embossing folder is by SU and the border punch is EK Success.  The mat around him is a SB die and I finished it off with a ribbon and two green jewels on either side of the sentiment.  This wonderful sketch is by Deconstructing Jen # 40.

I'm feeling much better now that I was able create a card to depict my mood!  I am certainly looking forward to rest of my day because as this tyrant says 'things can only get better'.  Thanks for listening to my rant and I sincerely hope your day is much better than how mine started out!
