Oh, Saturdays...

Saturdays, we have to stop meeting like this. Last night I got a whopping 20 minutes of sleep. I'm estimating, based on the song that was playing when I woke up...I had to grab my mp3 player because SOMEONE wouldn't stop snoring OR roll over when nudged/shoved/pounded.

At least there's coffee. And I made some cards. Actually, I finished making cards for every single challenge I had written down. Here's the one I made for the current MUSE challenge, inspired by Marion's card.

Supplies: washi tape from We R Memory Keepers; Basic Grey brad; flowers from Studio G; sentiment from CC Designs; Memento Gray Flannel ink

I was primarily inspired by the blue & yellow colours in Marion's card, the washi tape, and the linear layout. I am nowhere NEAR the only person who put it on an angle! 

 Off to get ready for a sleepy morning at the market - here's hoping I can stay awake long enough to get home & take a nap.
xoxo,
Jessi

I couldn't sleep last night either Jessi! Not sleeping apparently doesn't adversely effect your card making. Your card is so sunny and bright! Love it!

You have captured the fun feeling of the muse really well!

I love that you put your washi tape on an angle! Lovely flower, great bright colours and gorgeous card. Hope your Saturday morning went fast and you managed to stay alert. 8-)

This is so bright, pretty and cheerful! Love how you've tucked the sentiment in there. If I made a card after 20min of sleep and a night of snoring it would be dark and angry lol. Hope you are able to catch a wink tonight :)

Hugs, Dawn

You need some sleep... I don't know how you do it, but I'm glad you had a chance to make this card, such a lovely take on Marion's inspiration! Now.... GO to bed lol.

Beautiful card and use of the washi tape...cool idea!! I should give you my phone number and you can call me when the snoring begins, as I have the same problem..ugh...it is taking away my beauty sleep, and I need ALL I can get...lol!!!!!

What a fantastic take on the case card! You rocked it! Oh I know those nights! Weekends are suppose to be the catch up on sleep days, but sometimes when others are getting theirs you can't get yours huh! Maybe you can find some good solid sleep soon! Bless your heart I know your pain!

What to do with these snoring boys? You're lucky you only have one in bed with you. When both Luis and Atti get going it turns into a chorus! :)

Love how the little sentiment peeks out at the bottom of your card and that dotty flower is fabulous!

I would actually love to be up crafting when I should be sleeping..... I'm most productive when the rest of the family are taken care of!! I'm sure the novelty would ware off though :0)
Love these pretty strips of washi and clever how you included the sentiment.
