Where did this week go.......

Good Friday morning everyone.  I told you this week was going to just fly by.  Suddenly I looked up and it is Friday and everyone is getting ready for another weekend!  I feel like I'm behind this week.  I spent a day or two just pulling things out of a cabinet in my craft room and throwing away things I had been holding onto for years.  I actually went through my paper scrap bin and cut down many many pieces of paper and card stock.  No I'm not all neat and organized but I just got tired and quit.  Maybe another day.

This morning I have a card to share that I made several months ago and I don't believe I have shared it before.  It is actually one of the cards I did to enter the design team call for Heartfelt Creations. 


This watering can is one of my favorite images and I love the flowers just spilling over it.  I used HCPC 3306 Posy Patch Garden Delights PreCut Set, HCD 702 Butterfly Corners Die Cuts, and Spellbinders Squares dies.  You can find all these products at Heartfelt Creations as well as all their beautiful images.
I stamped the image onto watercolor paper and colored with distress inks.  Cut out the image with the squares die and edged in distress ink.  Next I cut out the corner motifs and glued them to the corners of the square.  I took half pearls and colored them with a Copic marker to match the colors used on the image.  The background paper is  homemade using pearlized paint and distress ink.  My finished card measures 6" X 6".

Well ladies, that is about it for me this morning.  I hope you have a great day planned and that everything goes your way.  As for me, not many chores going on today, so I should have some more time in my craft room.  I'm seriously needing some play time and hope to have that today!  No matter what you have going on or where you find yourself, just try and take a moment just for you and "Breathe"!
