I made something, I made something!!!

I know, you could hardly believe it either, right? LOL

It feels like FOREVER since I have even stepped foot in to my craft space. So odd for me. I used to look forward all week to my days off because I knew I would be crafting. Now it seems like it is an after thought. Life has a way of getting super busy and consuming sometimes. Crazy life getting in the way of my crafting...what is it thinking..lol  Any who....

I wanted to make hubby a "just because" card. His birthday was last Friday and I totally did not make him a card this year. He expressed afterward that he kept waiting for me to give him one, and nothing. :( I felt terrible. I totally thought he was tired of getting cards from me by now...but I am glad to hear that is not the case. He is so supportive and encouraging to me with my crafty endeavors. I thought he totally deserved a thank you..just because!

I was sneaky and after I colored her hair purple... or in Copic terms, blue violet, I asked him to look at the image and pick a color combo for her clothes. When he said to do the shirt red and yellow I was a bit mortified..lol I decided to do it anyway and I actually like how it turned out. I did have to nix the suggestion that I make her bow, pink. That was a little too much on the crazy, clashy side for me..lol

Here is what we ended up with as the final result:

Hubby decided to go shoot the sunrise tonight, so..... I got a chance to make this card while he was gone. I even had time to create the "Talk Nerdy to me" sentiment in Photo Shop. If any of you would like a copy of it, I would be happy to e-mail it to ya. 

I am going to get the card details listed and go cuddle up with my honey and watch some of the 2012 Summer Olympics. 

Ciao,
