flower power...

Good Morning all.  Do you want a good chuckle at my expense?  Well here is my story.  I waited until the last minute yesterday to make my card for this weeks Anyone for Anya? challenge.  Being in the states I am a bit behind London time and my card should be in by midnight.  No problem that is 7:00pm here and since I usually work at least 4-5 days ahead it is rarely, if ever, an issue.  Well I had a child home sick from school for 3 days this week, then the hubby was off from work Friday, as was I, so we spent the day goofing off.  Saturday rolls around and I had planned to finish up the last of the books for the businesses so we can go see the tax guy, which takes most of the day, but I still have plenty of time to do my card.  I updated my calendar and to do list for the next 6 weeks then headed to my office.  I probably should have actually LOOKED at the to do list because I made a really adorable card, took a picture, loaded it on to my computer, watermarked it and went to load it to the blog (it was now 6:57pm) and GUESS WHAT?!?!!  I had used the wrong challenge!  This weeks challenge is Flower Power, and not a flower in sight!  And it isn't like I used the next weeks challenge, I used the current challenge for another team but the wrong image.  So back to the drawing board... **sigh**

Because at this point I was desperate for inspiration and much in need of a card quickly, I hit the sketch challenges.  I found the sketch from Sketch Saturday to be exactly what I needed, though I did switch out the circle for an oval and was off.  And that is my story...
