Kewpies!

Geez, yesterday was a bit of a rough one for me! My mom, Cortney, and I headed out to Shriner's Hospital to get Cort's new leg braces fitted and my air decided to go out in my van! And on one of the hottest days of the year! We were sweating our butts off! And if you visit me frequently, you know that my van has given me nothing but grief. Add this to the very long list of problems I've had with this van! VERY frustrating! So this morning, I am having it looked at and am keeping my fingers crossed that it is a minor problem.......

On to my card! What better to brighten my day than these cutie pie Kewpies! Love 'em! They are from Crafty Secret's Journal booklet. I paired it up with some Papertrey Ink and October Afternoon paper. I Cuttlebugged and distressed a bit. I also paired it up with a pretty Tessa Ann clay button and some scrunched seam binding. (Which I dyed myself! A Tutorial will be coming soon.....super easy peasy!) Think Glimmer Mist meets Coffee Grounds! : )


So that's all I've got for you today........a van in need of repairs and a Kewpie card! LOL!
Have a fabulous Thursday!

OMW You just sold me on the Crafty Secrets Kewpies and that precious October Afternoon DP. I am SO sorry to hear about the newest issues with your van. Maybe your ought to do an entire post that names your van's manufacturer and delineating each and every issue, Then we can send it to the manufacturer.

Of course..when we are leaving for vacation on Saturday and now I have a $500.00 car repair!!!

Wishing you a cool day and hope that van gets fixed real quick!!!

It's always on the hottest days that the a/c goes out. Love the card--the red just makes the picture look so much more detailed. Can't wait for the tutorial on dying the seam binding.
