I squeezed out a little crafty time over the weekend with the help of my one-armed DH (I’ll explain this later in the post…)! This week’s Clean & Simple Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers is a Road Trip theme challenge, so naturally, I had to go dig out my VW Beetle stamp from Paper Trey!
This little car represents how I feel some days…careening through the day (sometimes on two wheels), managing the household chores haphazardly and not quite sure how the day is going to play out! Makes me smile, seeing things summed up in a card! I stamped the car image on Stampin’Up Brushed Silver cardstock in red ink which made it look more pink than red, but that was just fine since the Smooch spray I had on hand happened to be pink! The car is popped up with foam dots for dimension. I added three silver sequins to help bring out the silver in the car and stamped the sentiment.
Yes, life is one wild ride these days. DH ended up with a cast on his arm last week due to the breakage of a small bone in his wrist falling from his bike. I am now buttoning his shirts and straightening his collars for him so he looks presentable at the office! DS3 was granted another six weeks to keep his front tooth that he fell and injured back in June and school started in its usual crazy style! I actually remembered to take those “First Day of School” photos! Whew!
Life doesn’t always provide the journey I would choose if given the opportunity to choose, but, by golly, I’m going to enjoy the ride…speed bumps and all!
