What was I thinking???

Does anybody else say, "Sure, I'd be happy to make those for you?" Seriously...I think I have a problem. How do you say, "No, I don't have time right now?" I don't know how to do that. Here are 20, yes, 2-0 invitations made up. Oh my.

Even the gluing seemed to take eons. Can't imagine doing it without my tape still took forever and a day. Okay...not forever, but you get the idea.

I even felt compelled to add the shiny stuff to the space helmet...afterall, it's a glass globe for the astronaut. And for anybody's information, 20 critter creations fit nicely on the Martha Stewart Scoring board where they can dry.
There's a cute astronaut...

And I really like this alligator...or is a crocodile? But what a pain to color. Oh, and I used my Prismacolor pencils. No blending though...that would have taken EVEN longer.

This pretty ballerina...

And this great duck that would make a really perfect Daffy duck.

And don't they make hilarious critters?

I followed the amazing directions that Stamp Owl's Studio had. Awesome! I couldn't have done it without you! But next time somebody wants "books" for invitations, remind me to say, "Uhm, I don't think I can get that done for you right now." On a positive note though, I LOVE them and wish I was keeping them for myself.

Those are TOO CUTE! I bought that set for my grandsons to play with, and we've never gotten it out. Shame on me! I need to do that.
I used to be a "never say no" person, too...then I got OLD with bad knees. I finally learned to say no...on occasion. You will be SO liberated when you DO learn to say it!!! :D
