Ok guys I am going to start today's post with a woe is me story. I have to tell you that I came home from work last night and sat down to color Sagittarius from the Sweet November Stamps that I purchased from ATS. It was going so well. I was so relaxed and began to cut her out so that I could start constructing my card. I was down to cutting out the little curl of her hair and pulled out the old craft knife to get the job done. Mind you, I have done this so many times on my glass cutting mat it is just not funny. I was down to the last little cut and for some strange reason my finger on my right hand (I am right handed) decided to get in the way. I cut a nice line right down the middle from the first joint to the second joint. I honestly don't know what I did. I think that the knife slipped out of my grasp and slid up the finger... Even now I am not certain what happened. I turned around and asked Jerry to help me as it was bleeding pretty good. I am not mortally wounded, I just didn't want to get blood on my image. She is all done and I very happy with how she turned out. However I couldn't finish my card. Gggrrr! (It will be done for tomorrow's post!)

So because Sagittarius is on hold for a day I want to share a little embellishment that I made to put on my Copic color book that I made quite a while ago. I am going to try it again as I was impatient and the Glossy Accents ended up with some bubbles that I just have to work out.

I feel so bad, I almost forgot the most important thing about today.... It is my DH's (Jerry's) 46th Birthday today. Happy Birthday Jerry! The M&Ms and I all love you very much.

Ok guys, I better get a move on. I still have to wrap Jerry's present and I am so going to give it to him this morning as I can't believe I have waited this long.... lol Talk at you tomorrow.

Hugs, Lisa G

This is a very cool accent and I can't believe you used the metal top from cinnamon roll container...ingenius! I'm so sorry you cut yourself with craft knife, sounds like it had to hurt a lot! What a trooper to still get a blog post up anyway!
Tell Jerry "Happy Birthday!" hope he had a great day! :)
