Last night while I was making dinner my son came up from downstairs and said, "Mom, why is there glitter all over the floor and couches? My mind was reeling. I had no idea why there would be glitter all over. I know I like to add it to a lot of my cards, but I don't go *that* crazy! I ran downstairs to see a horrifying sight. My daugther had *completely* dusted my entire basement, including my stamp area, with Dazzling Diamonds. My basement was sparkling! I didn't know whether to laugh or to cry, so I yelled...LOUD! LOL! Most of the places had more than a *dusting* but rather piles. My keyboard had it dumped down in all of the keys, my drawers in my desk that had been left open had a generous amount sprinkled in them, the carpet, the tile, my clip-it up, etc. I don't think I need to go on...I am sure you get the picture. My daugther knew how mad I was at her; she promptly placed herself on the naughty step and began crying. My husband rushed down and took over the cleaning details and asked me to finish dinner. We sat and ate while I grilled my daughter about why she did it. She just cried and said she didn't know. This is absolutely the naughtiest thing she has ever done. The weird part is that she *never* gets into my stuff. She asks before getting anything. I calmed down and went down and finished the tedious task. Let's just say my basement will be sparkling for some time. Once I had calmed down, it really did seem funny. The funniest part was when I went down to discover it, Mary Poppins was singing "Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down!" on the TV. Maybe it was the song that inspired my daughter to add *spoonfulls* of glitter all over! I asked her where the container was and she said she had put it back. I checked and sure enough she had put it back but left a large pile in there, too. Now...here is the part that make me scratch my head. The jar still had 1/4 to 1/2 of it left. I used to say at my SU! workshops that your glitter and embossing powders would last a life-time unless your kids got into them. Apparantly they will last a life time even if they do! LOL!
So....you may be wondering what this card has to do with any of this. I wasn't the nicest mom last night and my daughter really is a cutie, so I made her this "Honey the Pooh" card for her. That is what she calls Winnie the Pooh. I keep telling her that it isn't "Honey the Pooh" , but she keeps calling him that. I followed this week's mojo monday sketch challenge that you can check out Here. I traded in the small square for the circle. I used my new "hundred hearts" set fromVerve and the Pooh image is from an old foam mounted set I got back in 1999 before my son was born. I threw away the flimsy packaging it came in, so I don't have any info. Sorry. I colored the image with prismacolor and copic markers, cut it out and mounted it onto a scallop circle. I used my nestablities to create the focal piece using various sizes. I stamped another black heart under the pink heart, but I didn't like it so I added a button over the top!
