Tax Day minus 1

Paulette, at Create with TLC, had a sentiment some time ago (2010 actually) that I really, really want to use tomorrow.

What are the chances of it triggering an audit?

Saturday I started working on my card for the current CDAC challenge. What! I didn't wait for the closing day? (I was tired of working on the taxes.) As yesterday was Sunday, and a day of rest (i.e. do not work on taxes), I got it finished. Crafting is relaxing, not working, so I figured it was okay. :D

I used the image provided by Bugaboo Stamps. I love Jodie's images. The bear is printed on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored with Copics, B000, BG10, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, R22, R24, R29, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17, Y18 and the Blender. I used Spica Clear on the halo and wings. His nose has Black Enamel accents, the stars Glossy accents and the cloud Diamond Stickles.

Distress Inks didn't have the exact color I wanted to put on the edge, so I started with Tumbled Glass and covered it with Bundled Sage. I think it turned out.

I found the red in the Tropical Bazzill Basic paper pack and cut it with Spellbinders S4-129. The design paper is from Echo Parks 'Happy Days' and the bakers twine is My Mind's Eye Lime Twist 'Happy Day.' The sentiment is in Hero Art's CL264 'Precious Baby Boy.'

I don't know of any baby boys due to arrive, but I'm ready!

Back to the taxes. DH handed me a bunch of receipts. I looked through them and some were dated 2010. Men.
