Bada Bling!

Hey there!  Thanks so much for the supportive comments from my last post, regarding balancing work and family time and "me" time (aka, crafty time).  I had to laugh at this one:

My time is at 3:30 in the morning! That's when I get everything done! LOL!! People say I am crazy (probably true! HA!) ... but it's the only time the whole house is asleep and there is QUIET for me! So it works! :) I love love love your card! LOVING the pearls!!!!!
Julie, you are too funny!  I WISH I could do that, but boy do I ever need my sleep.  If I don't get enough of that, I'm a little cranky.  ;-)

I'm sharing a bit of bling today, for a card that can be used for engagement, wedding or anniversary.


I had delivered this one to A Beautiful Touch a couple of months ago.  It was easy enough to make:  two circles, one die cut in white (to match the background) and one die cut in silver mirror cardstock.  Got mine from WorldWin, but I'm sure there are other sources available.  The sentiment is from Verve's Love Story.


Thank you, too, for the comments with regard to my frequency of posting.  I used to post nearly every day (which is probably too much for some folks), so this new routine/schedule feels strange to me, like I am lacking in some way.  I realize though, that it is 'quality' versus 'quantity', and I am okay with that.



Stamps: Love Story - Verve Paper: white, True Black - Papertrey Ink; silver mirror - WorldWin Accessories & Tools: circle dies - Spellbinders; rhinestones - Queen & Co.

A Beautiful card. I LOVE the simple elegance of this. I have such a hard time keeping up with my blog. But I'm thinking its because I'm on instagram to much.
