Pinwheel Wishes

I actually worked on a challenge card this week!  Now I didn't get it photographed in time to enter, but I did make something that I didn't HAVE to.  Nothing fantastic, but it was nice to create just because for a change.   I just love the cute pinwheel sizzlit and haven't used it nearly enough.  

I  need to work on finding my love of creating again and I think trying to do challenges again will be a good start.  I'm also thinking if being a demonstrator fits in my current life, so lots and lots to think about.  Maybe my next challenge card I can finish in time to enter.  lol  

Stamps:  Wishes Your Way
Ink:  Basic Black
Paper:  Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Neutrals DSP stack, Polka Dot Parade DSP
Accessories: Black Gingham ribbon (retired), Neutrals Glimmer brads, Brights buttons, White Baker's Twine
Tools:  Big Shot, Pinwheel Sizzlit, Corner Rounder punch

My sweet girl.  We had an absolutely awful day yesterday.  I'm not sure who cried more, me or her.  I don't know what was wrong, but she was just crying and crying. It was very strange as she's normally such a happy baby. I had so much to do to get ready for my stamping event last night and she just was not having it.   I was stressed, she was was just bad.   We survived though and I'm hoping for a better day today.   I'm not sure I can mentally survive another 12-13 hour day like yesterday!  I love that Jason's home 4 days a week, but on those really long days he's gone I miss having someone to jump in when I need a break .


  1. I love this black and yellow color combo. Very striking! I hope you have a better day with Laila :)

  2. Hi Rita,
    I agree, your card is stunning! I love the combo too.
    Wishes for a better day and hugs coming your way.

  3. look at that sweet blossom in the field. She cries all day? I don't believe it. (I do, really, but she look so sweet there.) Here's to brighter days Ms. Rita!

  4. Your card is fabulous...great colors and love that ribbon (retired or not, love plaids!!!)....sure hope you will remain a demo, even as a hobbyst...would miss your blog terribly! So sorry that Laila and mommy had a bad day - some days are like that even for precious loves who cannot tell you anything. Hope things straighten out soon! Hugs to both of you!
