No Mornings, Please

No Mornings, Please - This fortnight at Creative Card Crew, we are challenging everyone to make us laugh. We are sponsored by the delightful Bugaboo Stamps. I love their images. They are home to Stella and Gus, who are an old couple who are always snapping at each other. And that is just one of their characters.

I chose Crabby Cathy to work with and if you know me, you know that I am not a morning person. I am slow going and only half awake for about the first hour. Now at night, I am at my best. Luckily for our children, my husband is a morning person and my, what a crap he is at night. He always drove the kids to morning events and I had the late night pick-ups. It worked for us. LOL

Now back to my card. My DP is My Mind's Eye Twinkle, little star. I bought it to make my grandson's baby album, but I have also enjoyed the soft blues and dark browns for other things as well.

My Rosetta is a Sizzix die. After cutting and folding it, I added a brown wire that I wrapped around a paintbrush to spiral. I also played around with a ribbon until I was happy with it.
This is the sentiment that comes with the Bugaboo image.
Here is Crabby Cathy colored with Copic's. Don't you just love her bushy hair?
