Just Checking In

Hi blog friends...just checking in to let you know that I haven't abandoned card making altogether, though my time to create has been drastically diminished. The biggest chunk of my time now has been focusing on a new pharmacy that I've opened with a partner and I have to say that I really had no idea how much time and effort went into opening your own business. And it seems when I do have time to myself, I'm so exhausted that my creativity is not usually forthcoming. But enough about boring business stuff...here's a card I posted on Maja Design's blog last week, in case you didn't see it:


This card features Maja Design's Vintage Spring Basics collection, lots of Zva Creative crystals and pearls and also some vintage/shabby accents. 
Hope to back here soon with some more card goodness...'see' you then!



Stamps: Be Blessed (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Vintage Spring Basics collection (Maja Design), Natural White, Crumb Cake, Pistachio Pudding (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Cocoa (CTMH)
Accessories: Daisy chain lace, crystal flourish & green pearls (Zva Creative), Dotted Scallop border punch (EK Success), Floral Oval Nestability (Spellbinders), dauber
Size: 4 1/4" X 5 1/2"

  12. Hey great, this has been an awesome help to me, I have had some really strange annoyances in my personal life recently and it is funny how certain things can really pick you back up or make you look differently on the horrible things and get working on the other things in life. Anyway thank you a lot.
