Enjoy Every Moment

I am not a happy camper-my boys lost, the stupid energy company has screwed up my auto payment (and they can't seem to answer the emails or phone messages) and I scratched my eye (something got under my contact) at the gym. There are so many bugs in my kitchen flying around the light (thank honey for standing with the door open) that it looks like an air show and they are diving at my head.
Here is another card with multiple scraps. The middle scrap (patterned) is also covered with vellum.The two pieces at the top and bottom are textured and have a strip of ric rac to hide the seams. I used the Trio tape runner to attach both of them. I then took a simple tag form Office Depot and stamped on it-a line of flowers at the top in one color and the phrase in another. When dry, I used a Spica pen to color over the top of the E.
The final step was to layer two flowers offset and top with a button (using a pop dot in between the layers). Then I tied a scrap of ribbon thru the tag and pop dotted it at an angle. And now I am going outside and look for the mother ship-she is long overdue. I want to go home.
