SPCC #43 & FTL #86

Jeepers!!! It's been one crazy weekend!! I've been complaining to Jamie all week that our entire April weekends have been booked up. It's insane! I'm having trouble finding time to craft even though I have 4 days off because I've been stressing over my TAXES!!! Boy do I ever hate taxes and I'm sure many of you know what I'm talking about when I tell myself, "I need to keep better records for next year's taxes." The worst part of taxes isn't the actual taxes, it's finding all the bloody receipts and bills to claim. Anyways it seems like I've been doing late night crafting and pictures lately and tonight is no different. Here's my attempt at this week's SPCC color challenge and Clean and Simple's Fall to layout sketch challenge. I'm really really liking the sketch and I'll probably have to use one of my favorite sets, Circle Circus, to make another card with that layout. I didn't have any patterned paper in the colors so I just made my own by punching out the circles and then stamping a design onto them. Now I'm definitely not very smart because I didn't realize that the Yoyo Yellow ink I decided to use on the Glorious Green card stock would show up looking that yellow in photos. The other thing that makes me not smart is when I stamped it, because the ink was wet, it appeared darker. Now that the ink is dry, you can hardly see anything on the Glorious Green circles!! Bahumbug! I'll have to figure out something tomorrow to fix it. I just might rip it off, re-stamp it and glue it back on. Anyways I'm off to bed. It's been a looong day for my poor little brain.
