Thinking of You!

Hi crafty people. I hope you are having a wonderful week so far.

When you are in major mess "organizing mode" like I am, in preparation for my new craft space, you tend to search every drawer, basket or bin, and touch, handle and examine every item in your stash.  It's great fun to find items that you didn't even remember that you had bought.  It's almost like finding a hidden treasure.  In the midst of this treasure hunt I found a package of Fabriano note cards just sitting - lonely and unused.  I knew I would have to remedy that situation.  Remember my pledge in yesterday's post...the one where I pledged to no longer horde?  Today, once again, I'm making good on that pledge.


I was in the mood to make a quick little note card using Waltzingmouse Stamps' Asian Garden set and knew that the Fabriano note card would be the perfect canvas.  This card took me me about 10 minutes to create (5 of which was imagining the design), but it truly conveys my feelings at the time.

Life is busy - how 'bout yours?  Gotta run - back to work...have a great day!

Busy doesn't even start to explain my life. But I guess that is to be expected. Miss chatting with you and checking out your blog. Thankfully I can catch you sometimes on FB.

I spent most of my morning getting out of my MESS. I had to find my desktop so I could actually do work. Maybe I can create later. I love your CAS card.
