A Day At Home

Spent the day at home, cleaning and catching up on laundry. I am one of those anal laundry people.  I seem to have a mountain of items that I prefer to wash alone or with 1 or 2 select other items. I do countless loads of 3 or 4 items. Thank goodness my machine has a sensor that adjusts the water level!

Of course I prefer to think if myself as "The Laundry Queen" rather than the anal, nitpicky, OCD  laundry  lady!

I have one last card (from the card class night) to share with you all. It does not have any glitter, just a tiny touch of bling on the rhinestone brad.  I embossed  the flower with the Big Shot and then sort of shaped the petals with my fingers. This card  was quick and fun to make.  The card base is chocolate brown although it barely shows up in my photo.

 I have not done up the inside yet as I have not decided what to put on the cream cardstock insert. I am thinking it should be a birthday greeting with perhaps a small swirly stamp in each of the bottom corners of the insert...What do you think?
