Wish Big

Good morning, Friends! Another week is upon us! As you know, we were in Denver over the weekend. We drove over on Saturday and the weather became an issue. We eventually made it but it was slow going for quite a while. The game was Sunday morning and they played quite well! They lost in overtime and it was a heart breaker! They had the game in hand. Ugh! I am really happy with how they played! So after the game on Sunday we went to the mall because Nick needed some track spikes. We spend some time getting those and then we have lunch. We get out on the road (and it has been very windy the whole day) and begin our journey home. I get a text from the team mom about how incredibly horrible the roads are ahead of us. Ugh! We continue hoping it gets better. Then we get a call from another parent letting us know that Glenwood Canyon is closed because of a semi accident. Ugh!! We still continued our journey home. Turned out that we went through the snow storm/blizzard, sliding down the mountain at times, watching others slide as well and seeing many cars off the road. It was awful!! And then we had to take a detour to get around Glenwood Canyon that was 3 times as long turning our 4 hour trip into a 7 1/2 hour trip! So we let Nick sleep in this morning and will take him to school after a little while. What a nightmare! And we couldn't even take home a win - lol! But Nick is really excited about his track spikes - lol! So glad the sun is shining today. But it does seem that I have another head cold or allergies. Whatever it is, I am miserable! I still hope I can get some stamping and sewing done today. We will see...

Today's card came from an idea that Judy shared at our recent Shoebox event. She made these cute candles from designer paper! I switched it up a bit as I wanted to use a sentiment from Stampin' Up! So this is how mine turned out! Super simple!! I adhered a piece of Sunshine and Sprinkles designer paper to a card base of Whisper White. Then I stamped the sentiment from Word Play in Basic Grey onto a piece of Whisper White. I added two silver brads and a rhinestone before popping this up onto the card. Then I cut a piece of designer paper for the candle and cut the top at an angle. This is popped up onto the card. I punched the flame from Daffodil Delight using the Bird builder punch (the wing part) and sponged the edges with Daffodil Delight ink. This is also popped up. Super Simple! Thanks for stopping by! Have a super day!!
