Thinking of You

I managed to get into my craft room and do two things, 1: make a very CAS card and 2: stare at the walls thinking about what I should do about the 33 Christmas Cards and 4 Birthday cards I need to make in the next two weeks!  So, here is the card I DID manage to make for my OWH box:

Paper: cardstock (PTI)
Ink: Hero Hues (Latte & Poppy  chalk ink); HA Soft Leaf Shadow ink; Antique Linen DI
Stamps: Hero Arts (Bold Blossoms & sentiment set)

I do find it really challenging to get going again after a break from making cards, do you?  And we leave again in less than 3 weeks to go to South Africa.  Will I even know what card making is about when we get back in January?!!!  Scary!

In the card above I simply wanted that beautiful flower to take centre stage.

I find myself reliving the 4 days we just had in Seattle, it really was a wonderful time away.

Apologies, but I still have not found the time to come and visit your blogs, I am trying, but this week my daughter has a few after school activities so time is limited.  But I will be visiting, soon, I promise!

Wishing you all a wonderful day!  The sky is absolutely beautiful here today!
