So much to do...

...so little time.... I don't know how I ever worked. It seems I'm busier now than when I was working and raising kids! Anyway...(lots of dots today...) (Sorry). Half the day is gone, and I'm still in my pj's. Have been trying to get things ready for tomorrow's Scrap & Stamp up at church, among other things. I've got errands to run, and then I've got to really get busy! But I had to get a post up. This is my second post, the first went live about 5 A.M. this morning. If you want to see my first one, celebrating Sandie's birthday, click here.

I'd like to offer a quick thank you to the DT, and especially Ardyth for choosing this card as one of the winners at the Card Concept. I was tickled beyond measure to see my name among all those other fantastic card makers. So thank you so much for this!




And I have a bit of exciting news to share too...

Sure hope you'll pop over to Noor Nahdi's blog, Paperie Design Studio. As you know, she features different artists on Friday, and can you guess who this week's featured artist is?????!!!! Give up??!! Okay, I won't hold you in suspense any longer, Noor asked ME!!!!  I was so honored (still am!), and do hope you'll pop over there to check it out! Just click on the above link and away you'll go! Thanks Noor, I'm so thrilled to have been chosen.

I actually do have a card to post as well... (there are more of those dots....). Have you seen Therese Calvird's card over at Muse? Well, Sa-Woon! It was love at first sight for me. Totally wonderful!!




I love everything about it, and CASED so much of it! The colors, the inlaid die, the enamel dots... There's just so much to love about this card, don't you think?! Make sure you pop over and give her a little love.


My card looks like this:




Neenah white base and panel. A smidge of AC's Dear Lizzy's 5th & Frolic for the inlaid "happy." MME gray ink, Memento orange ink, Studio G blue ink, SU black ink. AE, PTI, SSS stamps. MME enamel dots. And with that, I'm off.... Have a great weekend and go forth and happy dance!
