make a wish...


Happy Thursday...I've been doing a daily countdown to the weekend.

So, we're celebrating the birthday of my boss' boss {is that how I type it ladies?}...


This Studio Calico Take Note Collection is perfect for her {Ala Paper Issues}...elegant, not too girlie.  I teamed it up with a fussy cut jar from the Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Collection {LOVE that} and the sentiments are SRM.  I've been on a huge twine kick...used The Twinery Charcoal to top off the card.

My card was inspired by Chupa's fabulous sketch:



My sleep pattern has been really wonky this week...more so than usual.  I've been waking up as early as 1:30 and not being able to go back to sleep so then I end up going to bed really early...such thee vicious cycle.  Hoping to get a handle on it this weekend.

  1. Ugh, sleep challenges are the worst, especially when it feels like you're caught in it like that. Ugh! I find weather changes affect me that way. Good luck :)
    Love the card - the flag-tag is so cool, and what is it about jars that's just so appealing? Love it :)

  16. Wonderful card! Love that jar! Guess what hubby and I found out about OUR sleep patterns?! I'm going to blog about how he was diagnosed weeks ago as pre-diabetic so we're having to hugely cut out carbs and sugar. Well, he's been seeing thee most amazing kinesiologist, and come to find out gluten and sugar have been causing hubby's fibromyalgia to get worse. Along with massively cutting carbs and sugar, we do not eat a carb at dinner, we don't eat past 8pm, and guess what? We're sleeping through the night. We haven't slept through the night in over 8 months.

  28. Hey Amy, I use spell checker, otherwise I wouldn't know!!!! doesn't matter unless you are a English prof, even though I know you are a professional and want it right. Love the card, the colors and design are so awesome. Sorry about the sleep, I don't know what that is most nights, so can't help you there. Drink less coffee, and I know that is not your idea of fun. Have a wonderful Friday!

  35. Hey Amy!

    I LOVE your card. It inspired me on so many levels. For some reason I often shy away from the pattern paper but your card inspired me to give it a shot.

    And, somehow I'd missed that Chupa had sketches on her site so now I can play along there, too.

    Thanks for all the fabulous inspiration you're always sharing.
