Aqui estoy a las 4:30AM sin poder dormir. Estoy comenzando mis vacaciones enferma y dando vueltas en la cama pensando como solucionar ciertos asuntos relacionados al trabajo. Decidí levantarme y hacer algo que me despeje en lo que me vuelve el sueño. sto siempre me funciona. Así que terminé esta tarjetita que hice siguiendo el nuevo workshop de Nancy. A la verdad es que me encanta el estilo de ella. El cambio que hice fue que alteré las letras. Las pinté con acrílico, luego las etampé y les di color en ciertas areas. Luego utilizé Crackle Accents de Inkssentials para darles brillo y mayor dimension. No estoy segura si me gusta el resultado final pero por lo menos no está desastroso y me divertí en el proceso.

Here I am at 4:30AM unable to sleep. I can't believe I am starting my vacations sick as a dog. arrrghh!! Today I am going to the doctor because I refuse to spend my free time in bed thinking about work and how I can solve a few things there. Anyway, I decided to get up and make something here to clear my mind until I get sleepy again which always works for me. I finished this card following Nancy's new workshop. I love her style; it's so happy and bright. I altered the chipboard letters by painting them with acrylic paint, and then I stamped the flowers and colored some areas. To give them a glossy finish I used Crackle Accents from Inkssentials. I'm not sure like the way it turned out, but I had lots of fun. Thanks Nancy for this great workshop.

Hi Joan! LOVE the card. It reminds me of a lovely warm patchwork quilt - something about the gorgeous colours, and the fact that it's so darn cold here at the moment. I hate Winter. I'm really a Summer girl, and it's not even officially Winter here yet - still another week to go. Stink!
Hope you're warm - and feeling better.
Take care.
