Le sob! Le weep! Le boo hoo! If you hadn't guessed from all that crying and carrying on, yes, I watched my recording of Sunday's episode of Downton. Bawling like a baby doesn't even begin to describe it. And I really shouldn't have watched it right before bed because there is nothing worse than waking up with puffy eyes the next morning. Seriously, how do you explain to people that a television show is the reason you look a mess without them thinking you must be crazy? ;)
Alrighty, since there isn't much I can do about my current appearance I might as well move on to today's card. I altered the new Puppy Love Mae from Some Odd Girl by trimming the puppy out of her hands and replacing it with a present found on the Gifty Gwen stamp set. This created a more generic looking birthday card which is what I was going for. All the papers are scraps and there really isn't much more to this card than that. Not a lot of embellishments and what not... but the bunting pattern was so busy that anything I tried adding just made it look completely cluttered. Sometimes less is more I guess. :)
Ok, lots to do today.
