planned power outage

Hey Everyone!
So today is a planned power outage in my complex, and my day off. NOT a fun combo! For some reason I had this idea that I won't have tv, or phone, but I would have internet!?!?! Where I got a crazy idea like that I will never know, but needless to say, I have wireless internet, SO I did not have any access to internet today. I also didn't have any access to my Cricut, but I did make a simple card for Jon's Uncle that is in the hospital. I find it hard to make cards for men, because I just feel I can not use a lot of glitter, bling, frilly ribbon etc. I wasn't sure about the bunny rabbits, but I think I can get away with it in this situation! I coloured the stamp (House-Mouse "Wishin' Well") with my copics, added some DCWV sparkly paper, punched the bottom edge, and added a ribbon. The colour may look a little off in the picture, but everything matches. I also used Atyou Spica-gold to colour the coins and make them look sparkly :)
Also, I bought a small wooden easal at Ikea for $0.99, for displaying cards, but it was just plain wood and looked kinda yucky. I decided to dress it up a little, so I painted it with a shiny, glitter gold paint and added a few gems. I didn't want to do anything too crazy, because I didn't want it to take away from the creation I trying to show. I actually really like the way it turned out, and I think it will work out well!

Thanks for stopping by! I'm going to go work on a few things now that the power is FINALLY back on!! Hope you have a fab day/night! xo
