Busy Working Girl Today

I am far from "Hardly Working" today. I just returned from the grocery store with the final two ingredients I needed for my Mardi Gras spread for dinner on Tuesday night. I have to work that evening,( poo!!), but will still be fixing traditional sausage red beans and rice with corn bread and King Cake for dessert. YUMMY!! So my job today is to get that King Cake done.

I spent part of yesterday cruising through the Operation Write Home March Bunny Hop looking at wonderful cards and projects made with spring and the overseas troops in mind. I found many inspirational ideas that I bookmarked and hope to incorporate into my creations this month. The ladies of the hop did a great job and their effort was appreciated here in my home.

I managed to complete a card and a layout this weekend in between not feeling so well. The layout was for Scrapping The Moments for a layout tag which will be published at the end of the month. Once it is published I will include it here. I felt it came out great since the primary photo was actually ME, a subject I seldom scrap.

The card I completed was this weeks challenge at Hambo Stamps. Their Hoedown has been great. With each card I complete to their standards, I receive a free digi image to use on my projects. As long as I participate, I get a new image. This weeks image was this cute little lion with two phrases. We were to use him, one phrase and stripes for a manly card. This was my first attempt at using hemp string and staples on a card. I had seen them used on a layout and just fell in love with these embellishments. I am hoping to use them again on more layouts based on my hubby and other male family members. I think it really adds some dimension to the project.
