One of the perils of Google Reader is you keep adding more and more blogs as your current bloggy pals introduce you to more and more blogs and challenges. And more and more until your head explodes. Did you know that Google Reader stops counting at 1000 unread posts? No no no, I don't follow 1000 blogs, but I have multiple unread posts in many of them, so I have hit that 1000 mark in the past. Your total unread blogs = 1000+ until you get it down to 999. You have no idea how far over 1000 you are unless you do that math, and I generally choose not to know.
So you can understand how stoopid-proud I am *puffs out feathers* when I get my Reader under 100. I strut my stuff and tweet and get all full of myself, then BOOM! I read one or two more blogs and find new challenges I need to add to my list of challenges I'll print out and not get to, then throw away. It is a vicious cycle.
So imagine my joy when I was catching up on Stef's posts (*waves*) and she's done a challenge of which I'd not yet heard! You know I had to go add it to my Reader, right? Sigh.
So here is the sketch from Fetch A Sketch:
and made this:
The star background is a piece of tissue paper I glued to a scrap of SU Naturals White. I declared the blue to be Brilliant Blue (retired) and used that for the mat. Red twine by Divine Twine, red buttons by SU, and sentiment by Paper Smooches.
Hmmm, almost 4 pm here on the Right Coast. Maybe I'll shower and begin my day. :D
Thanks for stopping by!
