Card-a-Copia: Flutter By Wednesday #178

Yep.  It was truly one of the worst weekends in my whole life.  The car was broken into and my laptop was stolen.  The next night, I spent the night at my mom's and my house was broken into.  Then I discovered my license plate on the front of my car was missing.  Finally, I dropped greasy food on the front of a nearly-new shirt.


All of which is the reason I do not have a card today for this week's challenge which is to create a card of Thanksful/Gratitude.  I will get on top of everything as soon as I can.  In the meantime, I encourage you to check out the rest of the team's work and add something of your own to the mix!

This little cartoon, though, kind of makes up for all the drama, doncha think?

UPDATE:  Nearly a week later, I finally have something to add to the gallery!  This image is a fun one from Paper Pretties and lent itself well to a Thank you card.  Sorry the photo isn't very clear - my little Canon Powershot is having battery issues and I was forced to shoot blindly at the image to get any photo at all!  (Got lots of "great" photos of my knee and the clock in the process!)

Image:  Peeps Sheep (digi from Paper Pretties)
Paper: Whirlybird "Best Friends" Scattered Flowers (My Mind's Eye), red and turquoise (Core d'inations)
Ink:  Copics
Misc.:  ribbon (Michael's), paperclip (Michael's), black brads (Stampin' Up!), butterfly sticker (Studio 112)

AND YET ANOTHER UPDATE:  Two weeks after it was stolen, my computer has been recovered.  I can't believe it!



I'm so sorry, Kelly! I'm thinking of you...hugs!
