Over the Hill

It is nearly the end of June.

Seriously?  School just got out.  How in the world can it be the end of June?!  The phrase "Time Flies" needs to be tattooed across my forehead.

Ok.  Not my forehead.  That would call attention to the wrinkles that are there.  Maybe I just need to put it on a sign and hang it on the door. Of course, that would require me to clean off my desk area so I could make the sign.  And the rate time is flying, that is not likely to happen before July.


ANYWAYS...

This morning I had to "whip" out a card that was needed for a family friend's 60th birthday roast.  As per my usual MO, I was running around chasing Time and barely got the card cranked out before I had to try and  make myself look somewhat presentable for the party.  Since this was to be a roast, a somewhat snarky card was needed.

Bugaboo Digital stamps to the rescue.


Inside:  I just can't get up it!!

Since my mojo tends to take off running when I have a very limited time to come up with a card, I used the CPS 269 sketch for inspiration.  

Basic card details:  Base is SU's Kraft, top fold, 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".  Decorative paper is from an old pad of Making Memories Just Chillin'.  The image was printed out on Georgia Pacific #110, since my printer hates my preferred Pure Luxury.  I die cut the image using Spellbinder's Classic Rectangles.  While the paper was still in the die, I did some light sponging with Distress Ink in Peeled Paint and Tumbled Glass.  Faded Jeans ink was used around the edges of all the layers.

A mish mash of over 21 Copic markers was used on the image.  Glossy Accents was applied on the glasses and the card was deemed done, thrown in an envelope and out the door we went!

That's about it for me today.  Stay tuned as the E-Team has another Inspired by Words blog hop in the works for later this coming week.  

'Till then................

I LOVE it...... and girl, the coloring is great. Actually the less is more works perfectly for this stamp. Totally works and love how you did the sponging. I can not get that right while in the die.

What a great saying, "just can't get up the hill" and such soft coloring...
