Some Days You're the Windshield.....

and some days you're the bug. Isn't that how the song goes?
Well, last week was my bug week - overwhelmed, exhausted, anxious - you name it, I was just plain stressed OUT!
I never even got my inspiration card done for the UDI Blog, then when I sat down to do my card for last week's Stamping 411 sketch, I created this card based on the sketch.

Pretty, huh?
The only problem was, I used the WRONG sketch! Ai-yi-yi!

I was all happy and proud of myself that I'd managed to get it done EARLY and e-mailed to Selene, but then the phone call came. "Robin, ummm, I don't know how to tell you this, but you used next week's sketch on your card."

Oh, to just have my brain back for a few precious hours!
Fortunately, I was still designing for my Aloha Last Chance Event on Saturday, so I was able to get another card done that worked for both. It is in this post here.

So, since most of what I'd used on this card is retiring on Wednesday, I thought I'd go ahead and show it to you now.
Here is a side view of the fun ribbon treatment:

And a view from the top showing all the dimension:

I really love how it turned out and hope you do too! I'm sad to be saying goodbye to this stamp set, well, I'm not saying goodbye because I'm keeping mine, but YOU only have until Wednesday to order it - so get crackin'!

Have a great Monday everyone, I hope you get to stamp something fun today!
