You're A Sweetheart

I had a few moments on Sunday and was able to make a card just because.

Paper: notecard (Hero Arts); cardstock (PTI; Neenah)
Ink: various Faber-Castell markers; HA Punch chalk ink; Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic markers
Stamps: Hero Arts (S5213 - Dots & Flowers; CL402; LL736 - Papillons)
Other: black jute (Michaels); corner rounder

I used a number of different markers on the background "Dots & Flowers" stamp.  The butterfly is coloured in with Copics.  The rest is self-explanatory.

Sorry I am a bit short and to the point today, I just think  I am tired, with a growing To Do List.  I went to bed close to midnight last night with a clipboard and several pieces of paper attached with various headings: "Garage Sale items"; "Change of Address required"; "items to give away"; "Follow up on shipment/dog transport etc.........." and I can never sleep when Michael is not home (come along Friday)!  Aagh, the joys of moving, again and again....


Wishing you all a fabulous day!

I hope you can start feeling more organized soon, Bren - it certainly sounds like you already are. Moving is a big, not so fun, job. Glad you're still finding time to create - love your pretty card with all those fun colors! Sending you a hug. . . .

So happy you can squeeze in your pretty cards with all you have to do Brenda! Moving is hard enough...but out of the country, I can't imagine it LOL! Hope the garage sale goes well for you...less to pack!

I love your "just because" card, Brenda! Very pretty.

I, too, have moved several times in my life and know just how you feel. Somehow it all falls in place in the end. Hang in there!

Such a lovely and beautiful way to create your own background. The result is gorgeous! As always :)

I've been away too long; you are moving? Exciting but also exhausting; such a busy time ahead...

Sure looks like you've go it under control, Brenda! Moving is never easy - especially such a big trip, but it must feel nice to get rid of extra baggage! Don't wear yourself out and get sick, now. We need you! Ha!

Your card is so beautiful, Brenda! I love all those different colors on the background. Moving is never fun but think about how happy you'll be when you're 'home' again. I love how organized you are!
