Hope It's a Hoot!


Good morning everyone! I meant to get this posted much earlier this morning but I accidentally fell back asleep before I had to tutor and that only left me 30 min. to get ready! Yikes! Hehe. I was up really early with my husband and was trying to get some things done but then I couldn't stay awake and I made the mistake of laying down! It's a good thing I woke up! Anyway, Angie Juda posted a question on her blog that got me thinking. Would you, as readers, honestly like it better if I posted earlier in the morning or does it matter at all? You can be brutally honest with me! :D I think it's funny because I would prefer to read other people's blogs early in the morning and then I don't end up posting on mine until later in the day! Silly, I know! So...let me know...it could change the way things work! :)

Ok...now onto the card! I love this image! It is so cute! Gina K was a genius when she created it (in my opinion)! The sentiments that go with it are great too! Anyway, Joanne posted a challenge on the Gina K forum to create a birthday card so this is what I came up with! I didn't win the drawing but that's ok! I still really like the card! :) I also used one of the Anni-Verve-sary sketches for this card! I doubt I will get to all 12 since I got so far behind when my family is here but I am sure I will at least get half of them done. I have 4 completed so far but they are due today! Hehe! Anyway, I hope you enjoy today's card! I have been in a SU! mood lately so look forward to seeing some SU! stamps for a change (and the new In Colors)! I hate the fact that they get neglected so much because they are amazing! Sorry for all the ramblings this morning but I do need to ask one more question! How many of you placed a SU! order yesterday? I did!!!! :D I can't wait to get my new stuff! Isn't the new catalog just fabulous? I seriously don't know how I am going to use self-control for the rest of this month! I took advantage of the Never Before Seen Special and I still need more! Too bad we aren't made of money! Anyone with me there? Haha! Ok...that's enough Stephanie...you are driving these poor women crazy! I'll be back later with today's Color Challenge card! Until then, have fun!

Love the card! I'm a night owl, so there's no need to post early for me. : )
