Prettie Wednesday with Texture!

Here it is, Wednesday already. Boy the time goes quickly when you can't put a baby down...NOT! Ok, I'll admit it, I'm exhausted. Just trying to finish this card up and take photos was a trial. Jackson is very much a mama's boy...he does NOT want to be with Daddy in the evenings, just because that's when daddy happens to be around. Remember Dinosaurs? THIS is what poor Phil feels like (altho the episodes where the baby is hitting him with the frying pan while screaming NOT THE MAMA are probably more appropriate! that I got my little rant's my Prettie Wednesday card. Danielle challenged us 2 weeks ago to add some texture to our card, and we couldn't use ribbon or primas. This was fun for me, since in Germany there are LOTS of different cut felt strips you can buy to decorate your table with. I purchased this strip of turquoise felt flowers for very little...and was excited to finally use it!
I used my Flutter By Sophia stamp since she goes so well with anything floral, and this favorite patterned paper of mine by SEI. I used GinaK's pure Luxury 120 pound paper for the base along wtih Tempting Turquoise and Pixie Pink for my colors. I colored Sohpia with my watercolor wonder crayons and aquapainter, then added some sparkle with my Spica Glitter pens. See that sparkle??I also stamped the inside of the card - and used the butterfly image from Rainy Day Friends since it matches so well...I even doodled the flight path! This card is going to Cards for a Cause, so I hope they'll like it.I hope you all have a wonderful day today...and I wish for you freedom to accomplish what you'd like, since I don't have much of that myself lately! (hmmm...maybe writing these posts at night after a long day isn't such a good idea!)

Ok...I feel like I need to include a cute photo of Jack I took earlier - if for no other reason than to show that he really is an adorable sweet little thing (all 15 pounds 14 ounces of him!)...and I'm just getting a little too tired!
