There and back again

First, if you know what the title of today's post is from, let me know... Sorry. I was swamped after my Thursday post, and then Sunday, when all was supposed to be full of laughter and light, things went from walking on champagne bubbles to caca pretty fast. Won't bore you with the details here. Just wanted you to know that I'm getting things back on track. Hate wasting energy, time, and brain cells on unhappiness. Then, yesterday was migraine day, and all of you out there who suffer from these know exactly what I mean when I say it knocked me flat on my hinder. Today has started out promisingly.

So. Decided to play along with CAS on Sunday's #7 challenge. I've had a vague idea for a card (well, more than one vague card idea) floating around in my head, and the sketch over there was the perfect one for this particular idea.

I really made two cards for this challenge. Will admit that I'm only showing the one, but the second is nice too--just not as good as this one. Great sketch don't you think? I have to say that I will probably be using this on other cards...Lots of birthdays in May. 

For my clean/more graphic cards I find that I keep going back to the PTI Birthday Basics set. It fit perfectly below the artsy part. Once again, these are scraps from the cardstock box. SU black ink, three random black blings, and a Crate Paper brad whose little leggies I took off. That's it for this card. That's if from me for now, but as I plan to work in here for a few hours, I just might be back today. Happy dances everyone.

Beautiful color combo that is sure to brighten the day! Love the random three brads in the top corner - they look really cool hanging out up there! The tilted panel adds a funky, whimsical feel. Sweet work dear friend!

Gorgeously graphic, Bev ... very cool and sophisticated ... love the dotty brad!

Just in case no-one else has said, There and Back Again is the other title for the Hobbit (one of my favorite books of all time!)

Great card, Bev - and how wonderful that some 'crafting' made you feel a bit better! Hope things are settling down for you in all respects! Your card = day brightener for me, so my recommendation: give your card a little hug (gently), knowing that it packs a whole bunch of goodness!

SO flippin cute, Bevie! I love that corner of lime and your spray of bling look to me like dots that are escaping from your awesome brad!!
