Hoping for a Better Week

I know you are not suppose to wish your life away but I am really glad to see the end of the past week. So much horror and destruction all rolled into one week for our country. From the marathon bombings, to the nut sending letters laced with ricin to the earthquake sized explosion of a fertilizer plant in Texas which caused so much devastation.

We were literally glued to our television all day Friday. We slept later than usual. So while I was waiting on the coffee to brew, I fired up my laptop to find out that the terrorists had been identified and that in fact one was dead and the authorities were hot on the trail of the other one. So of course I immediately ran to the television. We just couldn't stop watching. The sight of a major American city completely shut down was both amazing, disconcerting and surreal to see.

The only good thing about sitting around all day watching the news is that I got several images colored and cards planned. Today's card represents one of those. I colored up one of my new There She Goes Nutmeg stamp and then fussy cut her out along with the extra skull. What a fun new character! I'm already anticipating next month's release! I matched her up with papers from the Carta Bella Paris Girl paper, giving her some fun pink hair.

Products: There She Goes stamp, Carta Bella dp, Doodlebug button and jewels, My Favorite Things Die-namics, Stampin' Up punch, Copic Markers
Copics: Skin-E000, E00, E11, R20; Hair/Clothing-RV00, R81, R83, R85, N1, N3, N5, N7, W00, E81

I doubled up on challenges with this card including the There She Goes (TSG203) "just because" challenge and also following this week's Deconstructed Sketch (DS98) for the layout.

Let's all hope for a much better week. Have a great Sunday.
