Catch the bug / Humor me Wednesday/I'll rise but I refuse to shine

Wednesday August 21, 2013
 
Catch the bug Humor me Wednesday "Senior Citizen Day" August 21st.
This is my card at Catch the bug I used Morning Margaret
I guess I could of used Stella as she's an all time favorite but thought Margaret fit the sentiment I wanted to use. Me being a senior citizen.. oh my, yup I am.. I can relate to this some days. I still work full time out of the house so believe me, some morning are just that. But of course as I get up and moving and ready for work I am my ol jolly self.  You have to shine to get through the day.
I kind of mimicked the background paper for the background behind Margaret. I did not want to make it as busy as the background paper. I love the bright colors, how can she not shine with those bright colors.. ?
