Good Days and Pretty Cards

Have you ever had one of those days that were just destined to be good but you just didn't know it when you woke up? I had one today. Fortunately for me, it's almost over! :)

I woke up feeling great and that's a rarity for me. Had an MD appointment and received good and bad news. I focused on the good news. I'm an optimist! :)

Arrived at home and decided to do some crafting. I sat down with my daughter's furbaby, Fish. She's an almost 3 year old Summa. You know the kind... summa this, summa that. :) We love her. Not the smartest dog around but she's VERY affectionate and I'm afraid... I've got a tid bit spoiled! :( Not her fault though. :) So I sat down with her for a bit and fell asleep! Woke up three hours later with a start! Remembered I had several cards I needed to get done so I jumped up, had a quick lunch and sat down to work on these cards. 

The first card, I was pretty sure I could get it done in about an hour. Turned out to be a three hour job! :-\ I had the hardest time coloring the hair! Goes to prove... if you color... you must color every day or else you lose your "touch"... :)

After that, I decided to take a small break and sat down to pet Fish. I woke up two hours later with a start... :-\ ... drove out to retrieve my son from his job and came back home. Came straight into the craft room determined to save my day!

One thing, I should have done... I should have stayed off of Facebook all day! It's on those days when you think you're having a good day... but maybe you are not... and the silliest thing will set you off. 

So my day is almost over... and this is the best part of today for me. :)

My card:
I used a Fitztown image from the Kitten Queen CD. Card stock, printed paper, pearl beads, flowers, ribbon, lacey corner, 3-in-1 butterfly and heart punch and twine are from my stash. I used Stickles to add some shimmer to the butterfly and flowers. Here, I'll show you:
Pretty, aren't they! So all in all, I had a good day and made a pretty card and isn't that what life is all about? Good days and pretty cards? :)
