I'm on vacation this week from work and I've discovered some wonderful things: time to sleep in and time to craft! I don't like to sleep too late but I will admit it's nice to not have to be up and ready to leave for work by 8:00 in the morning. I've been working outside to clean up the patio, spray the weeds (I can't believe they're here already) and get the veggie garden ready for planting. And guess what? After all that I STILL have time to get crafty. If this is what retirement looks like I can't wait!
Yesterday I made a card for a few challenges. The sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments was combined with the colors at Color Throwdown and it was easy to add in a "thank you" for the ShowCASE Your Style challenge.
I did cheat a little and put my sentiment in a different place than the sketch but I wanted my butterflies to appear to be flying up and to the left which would have put the sentiment in a weird spot to my eye. So I put it down and to the left. I hope that doesn't get me kicked out!
Thanks for stopping by!
