It's been about three weeks since I made a card. I still have a super sick baby - we finally got over the flu and a cold, were well for one day, and then came down with either strep or a virus (still waiting for the doctor's test results but its likely a virus). The last two days have been the worst, so my husband decided I needed a break today. I just sat in a daze for a while, browsed some blogs (after taking a long crafting break it was hard to get started), and finally I sat down and made a card for this week's Craft Dash.
I finished everything on the card (minus the buttons) in 7 minutes 44 seconds. Then I sat and hemmed and hawed trying to decide if I wanted to glue the buttons on or not. With literally just a few seconds to spare I finally decided I might as well just do it. I finished my final button adjustment just as the 10 minute timer went off. I just wish I had noticed that the banner was a little off...I could have used some of those last two minutes to fix that! Oh, well. It feels good to finally have an opportunity to make a card, and I finished just in time. My son woke up from his nap and came in when I was cleaning up. He saw the buttons still dumped out on the ground and said, "Whoa holy moly. Lot a buttons." :) He and my husband have been playing with the buttons for the last 10 minutes so I could write this post.
