Wow, what an exhausting day today was, not necessarily physically, but mentally/emotionally.  I spent way too much time driving my girls to and from things plus my 13 yr. old had a yearly physical and we were at the dr.’s office for over an hr. and 1/2, which to me, (and to my daughter) was exasperating!  Then, right as I was serving dinner, same daughter spilled orange juice EVERYWHERE when she forgot to put the cap on before putting the jug in the frig.  Not a pretty sight!!

But enough of that, I’ve got some blogging I want to do tonight and gosh darnit, I’m going to do it! LOL.  We have a NEW THURSDAY SHOWCASE over at DIGITAL DELIGHTS BLOG and as always, the DT have outdone themselves by showcasing some brilliant projects.  I sure hope you will go check them out.  Also, if you have time, I’m sure the DT gals would love a visit to their personal blogs.   

We also have a NEW CHALLENGE for you going on at DELIGHTFUL CHALLENGES, so hope you will come play along there!

Finally, don’t forget to visit DIGITAL DELIGHTS SHOP to see all the great NEW STUFF and awesome SALE we have going on!

For my card today, I used the Donkeying Around set from DIGITAL DELIGHTS SHOP, one of my very favorite sets, and I used a sentiment from the Donkey Sentiments set.  I colored all images with Copics and then mounted them on this sleigh from My Time Made Easy.  I chose Basic Grey DT and papers from SU and Bazzill.  I cut all images and the template pieces by hand.  Sentiment cut with Sizzix die and daubed with Memento ink.  To the center, I added a paper bag full of candies.  Thought this would make a great gift for a stressed out friendSmile  Hope you like it!

Additional Challenges:
CRAFTS AND ME – use a digi
RUBY'S RAINBOW – anything but a card
WASTE NOT WEDNESDAY – use forgotten stuff (Basic Grey paper I have had for ages)
