I'm having the most wonderful kind of day....no commitments, no time schedules and NO LAUNDRY DUTY! And, on this kind of day, I love to get a few chores done in the morning so I don't feel guilty about "playing" for the rest of the afternoon. I'm in the midst of creating some fun and cute projects and thought I would take a quick break to snap a few photos to share with you.
Here's the scene from my desktop:
I usually clean in-between projects because my space is a little limited. And, right now, my youngest daughter has her "classroom" set up on the other side of the room, so I'm feeling a teensy bit cramped.
It's funny how I can start out with a "plan" and then, for some reason, I have the hardest time sticking to it. I bring out a million and one things to find the pieces that make the project "just right." I wonder if anyone else uses that kind of method.
Here's a brightly-colored card I finished for my big sis who will be celebrating a birthday tomorrow:
I have several of these fun birthday papers and die cuts from the We R Memory Keepers "Funfetti" collection. Talk about some fun images and birthday stickers to choose from. I could have gone way overboard with this collection! I also think some pretty Stickles or glitter added to the candle flames would have been fun.
Next up is a card for a sweet friend recovering from a recent surgery. [Sharon- Sorry I didn't send something sooner.]
This card mixes some patterned paper from my stash (in other words: I don't remember when and/or where I got it) with some Papertrey Ink cardstock and ribbon. I also used some of my favorite Spellbinders dies.
That's it for now...I'm moving on to some gift wrapping and one more card before...who knows what!! See you next time!
