Find a place to Relax…

Well…it is sort of funny.  I had my annual review at work yesterday.  I handed my boss a Halloween card (I’ve given most of my co-workers a card this year, not not because I was sucking up…) and her comment was that of ahhh…LOL  Her question to me was “do you ever just relax?”  I jokingly just look at her with a blank “what’s that mean?”  stare…so she attempted again “you know, sit back and do nothing”…I just laughed and said something like “yes, the 4-6 hours a night I’m sleeping”…LOL
Anyway, this sentiment from Create With TLC sort of reminded me of that conversation.  To give you an idea how bad of a house keeper I am…I have a huge garden tub that is basically used as a laundry hamper.  So even soaking in a bath tub never really happens.  LOL

Okay that is my story behind this card… Now on to what was used to make it:

feathers, butterfly punches from EK Success.  The adorable image is from sheet #395 from Whoopsi Daisy.  This is one of the pre-colored images from that sheet.  As previously mentioned the sentiment is from Create With TLC.  The cute ribbon was found at JoAnn’s on clearance after Easter.  There is two layers under all this stuff both punched using a Martha Stewart Edge Punch.  Iused some fun glittery Tulle to make a fancy bow and added some of the extra under some of the roses.  I added a round paper clip then tied a knot onto it using some gingham ribbon from Stampin’ Up!  Is that everything?  Gosh, I just kept on adding and adding…LOL

Did I mention I made this to keep myself from pacing as I’m waiting for friends to show up for my birthday party?  LOL

Thanks for looking!
