Hi everyone. Okay, this is going to be a really short post because I've got a really short fuse today. Besides this absolutely horrendous heat wave we have going on, I spent all day on the phone yesterday with tech support for a computer issue at work which led to my having to stay at work two hours later than I usually get off and when I left my computer was still going through a system restore. So this morning, I have to go to work and call tech support again to finish up everything. I am only praying that my backup has really backed up my files! Add the fact that today is my busiest day of the week at work because it's a pay day and everyone looks to me for their pay checks so I'm not really feeling too chipper about the work day today.
One thing I do feel chipper about though is showing you this cute card I made with this new image from Joni Walker called One More Chapter.

This image takes me back to my childhood. I used to read voraciously when I was a kid and can remember saying "One more chapter?" to my mother when she'd tell me to stop reading and do something. Of course more times than not one chapter would lead to another and so on.
I colored her with Copic markers and I think I was following a sketch challenge for this, but I was too late for it. The crocheted flower at the top was one of my snowflakes that was turning out to be too big for a card, so I stopped it at that point and left it as a flower. The center was wide open so I added a yellow button.
The frame behind her could be anything, but I made it a window and swiped some blue chalk on there for a sky and then stamped some green dots on the edge for bushes outside the window. I haven't added a sentiment yet because I do not know who this card is going to yet.
Heather has started a new challenge on Squigglefly's group at Papercraft Planet that I hope you'll go check out and try to play along. The artist they are featuring this time is Chesney Young. If you use one of her images to play along you get entered twice! Plus, I'm not saying what but there may be another little surprise over there waiting for you!
Well, I wish you a better day than I'm probably going to have and I hope you're having better weather than we're having here too! Thanks so much for spending a little of your time with me today!
