Sunday Craft Day

Today during church my sweet 3 year old got sick. He fought me to go to church which is abnormal so I should have known he was not feeling good. He ran a temp all day, slept from about 1000am-3pm and then was up for about 3-4 hours watching tv. I did get some soup in him which eased my worry. He kept telling me he was better now but I could tell by his glassy eyes he was still not up to par. He fell back asleep around 730pm and I'm praying he has a good night sleep.

The upside is I got some good crafting done today. I finished a birthday border set for an SCS swap but forgot to include it in my picture taking.

Sometimes I like to stamp without coloring the images in. I just love my couch Riley and thought I would make this into my DH's b-day card (today is his b-day.) I'm disappointed I stamped the sentiment across the bottom because it did not turn out as I was hoping. My new obsession is buttons though. I wanted to accent with them on this card and thought it turned out as a good embellishment.





I have not done a non-stamp card in a long time. I had this paper laying on my craft table from an SCS scrapbook page swap I did. So I thought I would use it up which one allowed me to clean of my craft table and two allowed me to create a non-stamp card which was my own personal challenge for the week. Not sure about the ribbon but it's too late to remove it without botching up my paper.
