I'm too tired to name this post

I made this card as a make-n-take for my demonstrator party with my downline earlier this week. This was made among the construction zone of my craft room. I used the new A Beautiful Thing stamp set. This will be in the spring/summer Stampin' Up! catalogue. The card was inspired by this one from Mary Jo Albright. I colored the sentiment in markers so I could use different colors on the words. The bottom flowers are stamped in pumpkin pie and then again on some scrap whisper white in soft sky. I punched out two of the flowers in soft sky and popped them up on stampin' dimensionals and glitterfied them. The flower on the medallion is glitterfied too. The color combo I used is chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, rose red and soft sky.

The craft room is still coming along. I can see some floor and cleared off 4 big tables in my basement so there's progress. My husband continues to build more units for my room. I am actually running out of space to put everything. I have been throwing out things by the bagload but still there's more. I'm determined to not have piles everywhere when my room is complete. While sorting through all of my stuff I finally found the photos for my Christmas cards so I can get those out now.

As for the tiredness, I suffer from insomnia. Last night was an especially bad night. I wont take drugs and I had corrected my diet for awhile but have slipped horribly in the last 6 months or so. That's one of my goals(along with everyone else) is to eat healthier and lose weight after the holidays. I let my exercising slip too. When I was living a healthier lifestyle the insomnia got better. My body's hormones are out of whack. That's perimenopause for ya.

On that cheery note I'm going to dash. I still have more sorting through for my craft room, last minute shopping to do, addressing of my Christmas cards and my son's Christmas party at school. No rest for the weary. I hope you are doing well with your holiday preparation. Happy Friday!

Beautiful card! Love that color combo! So glad to hear that your stamp room is coming together, I completely understand the insomnia. Seems we have that in common! It is 3:02 AM as I type. I am like you and won't take drugs. Just gonna have to ride it through!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from your siesta!
