Q.T. Hooty

Morning everyone! Remember how I was hoping to get so much stamping done yesterday? Yah...didn't happen. I'm having some problems settling into a good time for me to be creative. I used to stamp at night after everyone was settled at home for the night but that just hasn't been happening...I'm too tired. The rest of my day is busy too though so I guess I just need to find a time and do it, huh?

I did, however, make one card with my new Q.T. Hooty set that I got at limeLIGHT. Isn't she the cutest?! I have always wanted this stamp set and just splurged and purchased it the other day. I'm not totally happy with this card, however, due to the flower soft that doesn't really look like a flower. I did decide to post it though so that maybe someone who is familiar with the product will leave me a comment/send me an e-mail with some suggestions. (hint, hint...anyone?) Anyway, I used Retro Prints DCWV as it just seemed fitting with those wonderful retro glasses she has on. I just added some small details that make things fun like gel pen on the glasses and hat band, a Prima flower with pearl in the center and then I love the ribbon from LLPC, too. The green just kicks things up a notch...dontcha think? Oh, and this is the Mojo Monday sketch for this week. And finally, the size of my card is 3"x6". I really love making cards this size and don't know why I don't do it more often...weird!

I have started a class (it meets four times) at our local Care Net (crisis pregnancy center) and had that last night, tonight and next Wens/Thurs as well. I'm not sure exactly what purpose God has for me being there (but it is definitely God ordained that I'm there) but I'm open to learning more about the center and how they help woman of all ages, backgrounds, and situations. Please pray for me during this time so that I may more clearly see what God has in store for me after the training.

I get to go pick up Kyler tomorrow...woot! I have missed him terribly! I'm also going with a friend, tomorrow, to see The Proposal. Looks like a funny movie!

Okay, enough dribble from me. I hope you have a super fantastic day!

I think your card is very cute! Love the colors you used. Maybe if you matted your flower background piece (that's behind the owl) with a solid cardstock it would stand out a little more. Otherwise I can't see anything wrong with it!!

I {heart} QT Hooty! And I think your card is adorable. I thought the FS looked cool. I have no experience with it - never tried it. I can see what you're saying about it not looking like a traditionally shaped flower, but I still think it's a super cute addition to the card.

And how cool about your class! I would love to do something like that.
