Wow, it's been a while-but I have a Tiki!

I haven't posted in like two weeks, yikes! I have hardly read a blog in two weeks either, double yikes! I know I am missing out on tons of great cards and projects and stories but I've been so busy. My 2 1/2 year old came down with coxsackie and was home sick for a whole week. The following week they closed the daycare for a day because the power went out and we were having a heat wave. That same week my dh came down with coxsackie too! It took me all of this week just to catch up and I have spent pretty much all evening packing for a week long trip to Hilton Head SC. I just have to clean the bathrooms now before I go to bed. Crazy right? I can't sleep if they are dirty, knowing I will be having people come in here during the week to care for my animals. And I hate rushing in the morning...worse, I hate when my dh sits in the car because he's ready and is tired of watching me run around doing last minute things he doesn't think are necessary. In the midst of all of this I found that I had a card I never posted so at least
I can show that I am still alive!

If I remember it right, here's what I used:
Image and sentiment from Rubbernecker. All paper is from PTI. Nesties for ovals. Pierced and used white pen on scallops. Colored with Copics. Added flowers and leaves from Prima and tiny gems in the centers. Dew drops on the edges. Ticket corner punched and distressed dp panel. It was for my nephews 12th birthday. He's such a boy but he loves my cards! He just got such a kick out of this guy. Inside of course it says "Have a Freaky Tiki Birthday". I have another great tiki I am going to use soon. Anyway, I will be back next Sunday and I'm sure it will take me another week to catch up before I start posting and blogging again. I hope everyone is having a great summer! Have a great night!
