Ugh, I'm so exhausted. My husband, children, and I all went to 'Lifefest' in Oshkosh, Wisconsin for three days. Its a Outdoor Christian Music Festival. We saw all the big names in the Christian Music Industry: Toby Mac, Barlow Girls, Leland, Cutlass, Skillet, etc. and a lot of really hard, acid-rock groups that I don't even remember the names of. My husband and son just love that type of music, whereas I'm more 'light rock'. Anyhow, we were up at 8:00 a.m. everyday, and never got to bed before 1:00 a.m. I rarely go to bed past 10:00 p.m., so I just feel terrible right now: like a truck ran me over. I even took a two hour nap when I came home, and I still feel physically sick. I started to think I was too old for rock concerts, but, then I remembered, I never liked them, even when I was a teenager. So it really has nothing to do with age. LOL! My husband is the type of concert-goer who loves to stand in the pit and bounce, scream his head off, and sing along. I, on the other hand, prefer to sit quietly and observe the concert in my nice comfy folding chair in the back. I even embarrassed him when I brought a tote along filled with Copic Markers and some digital images to color and everyone walking by wondered why this lady was just sitting there 'coloring' like a two year old. I said to my husband, 'Well now you know how I feel when you fall asleep at a Musical Theatre show!' LOL! Anyhow, I think it will be a long time before we try that again as a family. Especially since the whole thing cost us about $600 and I didn't even enjoy myself. I could have gone to 6 Broadway Musicals at that price! LOL!
Onto my card for today. I actually made this one several weeks ago for a Featured Stamper Challenge on Splitcoastampers. The Featured Stamper was Dawn Lusk and here is her original card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1142855?cat=500+ppuser=19913 I kept the same layout, but changed everything else. My image is 'Just Nutty' from Clear Dollar Stamps and it says 'Happy Birthday' inside. The squirrel was colored with Prismacolored Pencils and Gamosol and is popped up on dimensionals. The paper is DCWV 'The Green Stack'. Card stock colors are So Saffron, Going Grey, White, and Close to Cocoa.
Have a great day. I think it will be awhile before I am physically recovered from my latest adventure. I'm working non-stop for the next three days. When it rains it pours! LOL! Amy
