a bit dispirited...

Is it a bad thing that all I want to do is lay prostrate on the couch
and watch episode after episode of the Big Bang Theory?
I need a summer vacation,

or something...

OK, back to business!!!

Kathy posted a new sketch over at the Frantic Stamper blog on Sunday.
 I wanted to play with some new goodies I purchased recently, 
and a Couture Creations Waterfall embossing folder,
both used with my Big Shot die cutting machine. 
(I really like that thing!)
and I came up with this!!!


 Yeah, the photography isn't so great!  I took the pix at night...

Anywhoo, I thot it'd make a great high school graduation card... a metaphor for metamorphosis, right?!  Catepillar to butterfly to bright beautiful kid going out into the world.  But who to send it to?!

Ok...I still haven't made anything for the current Scrapping the Music challenge (P, I am a terrible friend!)  At least go over and check out the pretties that the rest of the design team made!  You could also go see the participant's submittals for the current song!  (Its a Good Life by One Republic) and prompt (What is your most memorable summertime song?  Whenever you hear it, what are the memories that come back to you?)  You won't be disappointed!!!

I don't graduate this year, sorry... (I'm on a life-long study *teehee*) I love the purple card! And I love what I read about the next STM challenge... haven't played in a while. I will hop over. How about you and me BOTH make something for it in the weekend? (It could be rather small too, like an ATC?) Would that kick us both in the bum? Enough to start? Hmmm... (I wish you lived around the corner, now thát would help!)
