Mr Grumpy Pants...

Well I was just wondering if you have ever had one of those days..
I know you know what I am talking about..

You don't get to do anything you want to..  Seems like everything comes up all
at once. It kinda makes you feel like Mr. Grumpy Pants.. 
If you know what I mean!!

O.K.  I have to admit I had a couple of days
that were kinda that way last week.

So I took some deep breaths.. Thought positive thoughts and
Had a glass of wine..  And everything was better.
If only it was always that easy! 

I even got my card made for this Weeks challenge for 


I heart you...  
That is the challenge our lovely Cheryl has come up with..

Oh yeah…it seems to happen to me too. I just don't get as much time as I would like to visit my favorite blogs or craft or type up blog posts; other stuff has to be taken care of. Yesterday I had a relatively short "to do"/errand list, but everything took waaaaaaaaay longer than it should have. The good news is I did get it all done, but hours later than normal. But I think since everyone has these kinda days (& weeks), good bloggie friends will always be there when you are able to return :)

Super cute card, Linda! I like the subtle heart of her lips and on the kite. The crochet trim and sewing is fab too. I think this works well for this week's Shopping Our STash challenge too (vintage/distressed).

I know what you mean girl. Sometimes it just happens that way. :)

Your card is beautiful. Love the pink and little bit of lace trim. Hope you are having a better week now.

Hugs~

Heather said...

This is SOOOO SWEET!!! I LOVE the stitching and distressing. That ribbon is AMAZING!!! I so want to learn how to do that. Ribbons give me the most trouble :D

I am glad you enjoyed creating your card. So happy to be the sponsor of City Crafter Challenges

Have a blessed day

Hi Linda! A glass of wine helps me out sometimes, too. (but then one turns into 3 or 4, and then my head hurts the next day!)

Your card is so sweet! THe papers are really pretty, and so is that crochet trim. Beautiful! I have that same SU sentiment and it's only seen ink once. :(

A wonderful card, love this lovely image and the use of the lace and the ribbon.

Catherine said...

I hate my "grumpy pants" days! Luckily they are few and far between.

I love the little heart on the little girl's kite ~ so cute!

Wishing you a Happy Tuesday Linda!

This is really sweet, Linda! I love the pinks, the crocheted trim, and that awesome seambinding bow. I hope your day is NOT a Mr. Grumpy Pants day!!!

Angi @ CokiePop said...

Yes...I can so relate with you. I had one of those weeks recently. Your card brings a sweet smile to my face. Love the design. And I'm so happy to guest design with you ladies at CCCB. :)

Terry said...

Lovely design! Your stitching always adds that delicate and beautiful touch! Great photo Mr. Grumpy Pants! I would like to say that I don't have a clue what you mean, but that would not be the truth! Have a fabulous day!

Becca said...

Hi Linda! I love how that kite looks like it is just taking off with that cute little girl. Yep, my Mr Grumpy pants visited me a couple of days ago, but I'm happy to say that he is gone now!

Sylvia said...

Hi Linda, I woke up on Sunday(should I say sleepless woke up from a short sleep)in a grumpy mood. I was glad I was the only one home besides my kitties. I did an adjustment and had a good day. But I could have been grumpy all day, I was so tired. As for Mr. Grumpy, I have only found memories of horn toads. We used to have them when I was little, they actually laid eggs and hatched in my sand pile( the only sand in the area)!! I have picked them up, they aren't so grumpy.

Enough nonsense, your card is so fun! Love the hearts, especially the one on the mouth! Pretty colors, too. Have a great day!

Cheryl Nelson said...

So sorry you had a rough couple of days and so happy to hear things are going better now. Your card is ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTFUL!!

You know there just aren't enough hours in a day ... that's part of the problem ... and problems are like bananas ... they always come in a bunch!

Sending lots of hugs your way, Linda. I think those kind of days are a part of life... we certainly don't like them, but there they are. I seem to be quoting Nahum 1:7 all the time.
I HEART your card... such a cute image. Beautiful lace trim... just lovely! You are just loaded with talent, dear lady!
