Mad Monday Continues...

Just another Manic Monday....(oh, Elizabeth, I am so gonna kill you!)

So, yes that damn song is still in my head, over and over....
That's my fun day....

Picked up poor Max at Soccer Camp and some children were barfing from the heat...such a lovely way to end a day.
Felt so bad about driving him home in our hot car after he sweated his day away at camp, so we stopped for Slurpees, seemed to make the hot car less of a problem after that.
Glad to see that maybe it is the heat getting to me, and I am not the only one.
And let's face it, there are just some days when you are just off.
Today was one of those days.

Here's a couple cards I made yesterday for one of the Dares over at Splitcoast.
Make two cards, one simple, then add some magic to the second.
These are 4 x 4, figured that they would still fit in a regular envelope, so that's the size they are.
For the card with the added jazz, I used my Stardust pen to add some glitter to the swirls of the Baroque swirls. It is a clear glitter pen but for some reason, mine looks gold.
If you have this pen...Does yours look goldish too?
Then I used the Hero Arts gem stones to the flower and the swirls.
I have a few more challenges I want to take a stab at still and there are a couple more cards I made that I am not totally thrilled with that needed to be saved...
But alas, it is too hot in the back room where all the scrappies are, so that will have to wait for cooler, or at least less humid weather.

It is so humid here....You should see how big my hair is!!

My Stardust pen looks goldish or silverish depending on what I color over. It's not always clear.

Love these cards and hey, we're having icky weather so I'd take your heat--it's only 64 here and Miles couldn't go swimming because they cancelled since it was drizzly. Gotta love California :-) oh, yeah, I live in the Bay and it's NEVER warm here!

My stardust pen usually looks gold on cardstock. On white it will come out silver.

Love your more card, love all the *bling*. Great job!

I don't have a
stardust pen yet, no matter how much I spend..there's something I still have to buy.(oh well):(
I love BOth card but the bling is my fav. I love bling! I also like coming here to read what you have to say. Don't talk about the heat...when it gets too hot and humid, I don't feel like doing too much, the heat saps my strength. So, I know what you mean there. Try to stay cool and have your son take some frozen water or Gatoraide (sp) to soccer practice the next the time weather is hot and humid.
Take care now

Hi Simone!
