You Know You're Weird When.....

When you wake up bolt upright at 3h30 AM thinking, "oh my gosh, I don't think I posted a card today", and you're thinking all of this in US time zone when in fact you are in your bed in South Africa.  So then you start making calculations thinking, OK, if I get up now I can still get a card posted for the 9th (but that's still in US time, and I haven't clicked onto that as yet).

Needless to say, I eventually fell back to sleep around 4h30 AM and when I got up at 6h30 I went to my blog, STILL thinking that I could just make a post in the nick of time for the 9th of August, except when I clicked on NEW POST reality set in because the computer said it was the 10th of August (which it had been for the last six and a half hours!).

So, my goal to post every day of August has been destroyed, I will have to attempt it again in September!  But, I did make a card for today, let me share it while you gather yourself and stop laughing at my silliness!

Paper: cardstock (PTI); patterned paper (scraps in my basket)
Ink: Versamark; Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps: Hero Arts (Inky Spots); MFT (Flowers-3); SSS (Cupcake Party)
Other: White Embossing Powder; Scalloped Edge Punch

The Inky Spots background is white heat embossed and the flower is paper pieced.  I have so many birthdays to make cards for this month, which is a great motivator!

I hope you are having a fabulous Saturday.  I just went for a nice 11 km run and I am feeling good, plus I went weight training this morning so I feel doubly good!

I have to admit, I AM giggling a little bit - you are so funny! I love your dedication, Bren! I could NEVER post every day for a month - I know it just wouldn't happen, so I think you're doing an amazing job at trying to reach that goal!

Love your card today - so fun to see the Inky Spots again and your flower looks beautiful!

Hi, Brenda! I love this card - a great design. And, your post made me smile, because I often get my best ideas in the middle of the night. :) As I told you before, I would not be able to post every day. You have a lot more determination than I would have!
