The Basic Gray layer is embossed using the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.
The Soft Sky layer was placed on the bottom of the card and the sentiment from PTI's Out on a Limb set was stamped with Mellow Moss ink.
The next Soft Sky layer is matted with Barely Banana. The baby blue sheer polka dotted ribbon was then wrapped around and tied on the front. I did this three times and then staggered the knots downward.
The image from SU! Oh So Lovely was stamped three times onto GP white cardstock with Brilliance Graphite Black ink. I then colored them with copics. I also sponged the panel with Mellow Moss and Soft Sky inks. The image was then matted with Barely Banana. I adhered the image panel behind the ribbon.
I burned my arm yesterday getting a sheet pan out of the oven. I toasted a sub for Duke and mistakenly spun the pan once I removed it from the oven. It promptly left a burn mark on my left arm and it hurt like the dickens. Thank heavens it is a thin pan and the burn is not very big. I get burned by something every once in a while, usually when I am in a hurry.
We have been trying a new way to get Cody focused and ready on time in the mornings; he is a notorious slow poke and is easily distracted. So, after much deliberation and brain storming, we have a plan that is working. He loves games, so I bought a timer and we have been timing him in the morning and during meal time. If he beats his times he gets a cash reward for the day; payable at the end of the week. He has the possibility to make $5 per week. You should see him scramble to complete his tasks. I am hoping these drills keep him focused and will eventually reiterate to him what needs to happen everyday. We shall see; but for now, he is excited about it.
