I'm not sure how I managed it, but I have the whole day to myself by myself. Now you might not think that sounds like a way to spend Valentine's day, but ooooooh, it's quite wonderful to me.
Last night the dog woke me up to go outside, just after we went to bed, and I never was able to fall back to sleep. I went back to bed and lie there for an hour or so, but was so wide awake that I got up and went out to the living room, and there I lie/sat on the couch the whole rest of the night. Boy was I ever so happy to see the sun come up this morning! I was so ready for someone else to be up! I felt like I was so keyed up, and I don't really know why. I'm always excited about something I'm working on, but I wasn't anymore so than normal. I guess I should have gotten up and made a card, but I kept hoping I would get sleepy. Oh well, I hope I feel okay today and am able to get all the things done I want/need to do :)
Anyway, I made this cute little Pirate shaker card for the new Paper Smooches release and I had to enter it into the challenge at Virginia's View this month, since it was for shaker cards. I just love the way this turned out. The pirate parrot is supposed to look like he's inside a ship looking out the porthole at another ship on the horizon! That was my vision anyway!
