Hello Chica

Wow!!!! I am late getting this challenge in today. The picture is a little dark, too. It was already dark when I finished. This is for SCS Ways to Use it Challenge. I love this kissable tree stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms. It is truly kissable which I did here with the Daisy Chain scrapblock. Love the curly cue perfect for a touch of bling. I added the white gel detailing in the corners, but if I were to redo this card, I would have left the dots to just the sentiment oval. I think the corners need something else. I paper pieced these cute little birdies.

I had a very busy day. My son got his braces off today. I was so amazed at how pretty and straight his teeth are now. We had to go to the orthodontist twice, though. Once to get the braces off and once for the retainer fitting. Needless to say, he was absent from school the whole day. There was no other way to work it. I also had to take him to pick up his new glasses. Then, we had lunch. By the time we got home, it was time to do my high school carpooling. By the time I finally got to my craftroom today, it was LATE. Then, someone actually mentioned...when dinner would be ready?
