Today's card is simple in design. I inked up the image with More Mustard and then colored with the markers. Originally, I was going to have a half-circle of rhinestones on the right side of the image but I thought that would be a bit much. I settled for the rhinestone in the center. I love the rhinestones Stampin' Up! has because they seem to sparkle more than other brands I've used in the past.

Do you remember Aesop’s fable about the Grasshopper and the Ant? The industrious little ant worked all day, every day preparing for the days ahead of him. He was always prepared and never stressed. The grasshopper was a procrastinator. His motto was ‘Why work today when I can wait until I need it tomorrow.’ I try to be that ant and plan ahead, however, deep down inside, I'm a grasshopper. I keep revealing that about myself as I work on projects, have laundry to do or maybe even a lesson that needs to be prepared and I'm off having fun, procrastinating and putting off until I have to do it.
Today I am a grasshopper.
