Busy, Busy, Busy ....

Hello there! I am trying to get motivated to go finish the many different things I have started (cleaning the toaster oven, the laundry, getting dressed, feeding my son who is home from school sick, finishing the birthday invites for my daughters birthday party this weekend, yada yada yada...) but I am lacking the "want to" today! So for the moment I will just type out a post for you all!

I had a fabulous weekend at work, with part two of the THINK PINK crop on Saturday. We did a approximate count of the money we raised and it is looking close to $4000! Way to go!! And a huge thank you to all you generous people and business who donated prizes, and another huge thank you to all who bought raffle tickets for all the great prizes!

For any who have been on my blog lately you may have noticed that my fancy, pretty background was gone. I am not to sure what happened (due to my lack of computer know how!) and it took some fooling around (well mainly guess work), but I was able to fix it up and have it looking pretty again! Yyyyaaayyyyy! 

And now for something else that is pretty!

This is a card I made for my dear friend Ivana who is off gallivanting in Europe after having her beautiful wedding in Croatia! (We miss you Ivana and can't wait to see you and some pictures!!)

I used some of the 6x6 papers from AUTHENTIQUE, which are just perfect for making cards or mini albums! The line of paper is called FREE BIRD and comes in numerous little coordinating groupings.

I have a cute punch from FISKARS that makes the beautiful scalloped hearts, which I then traced with my fine-tipped sharpie, inked the edges and crumpled for texture. I then adhered them so they were sticking out of the cute little paper bag from CANVAS CORP. I also inked up a doily and stamped a piece and cut it out for the background to give the card a more girly, shabby look.

And to finish it off, I stamped a sentiment to cut out and adhere to the front. I also tied a bow using some jute and stuck a hat pin through the knot and secured it to the card.

And now for those of you who did the TWINE FLOWER make 'n take at the crop, here is a link to the online tutorial. One of the steps on the tutorial is drawing lines on your chipboard circles. We skipped this step when we did the make 'n take but feel free to give it a try for a more precise placement of your pins. It will still work without doing this step though! I am going to post some pics soon of the projects I did using these super cute flowers soon!

Now I have to go feed my kid! I am pretty sure he will start complaining if I put this off much longer! Enjoy your day!
