Shape-ing up at 365 Cards

I'm late, I'm late, I'm late.

Life is crazy here. Somehow, the fatigue of the summer caught up with me yesterday. I arrived home at 1pm and immediately rested on the couch. It's 7am now. Uh, yeah. No, I didn't sleep the entire time, but I did little (if anything) productive beside lie there and rest. No laptop. No blackberry. No magazine. Just me and restful quiet. I should feel completely revived now -- but knowing that "real life" starts Monday is causing me some anxiety. (I'm a school teacher, and inservice begins on Monday.)

Anyhow, I meant to post this yesterday.

Here's my card using Wednesday's inspiration at 365 Cards, which was to use a star on the card.

Supplies: Colors - Dutch blue, Autumn terracotta, tulip. Stamp sets - Star struck, Faith.


  1. I do believe this is a beautiful card!

  2. Oh I like this card! And good for you for taking the needed time to just rest. You must have needed it. And knowing you are soon to head back into the teaching "grind" you doubly needed the rest. I well remember those days as I used to teach elementary school.

    Here's to a successful start to an exciting new school year!

  3. Great card! Your last post, too! As for fatigue, I totally understand. I manage to do OK with the day-to-day stuff, but throw in something "extra" and I'm instantly overwhelmed. Sigh... Take care, my friend, and good luck tomorrow!

  4. Fatigue of the summer? I hear you. I haven't made anything in days. School starts next week though and I'm super excited, can't wait!

  5. Lovely card, with a perfect sentiment to match!

  6. I like this card, Maricar! It's very appealing - the colors and the simple STAR. Yeah!

    Good luck with the new class!
