Thinking of you today



Hello!  As I type this, it's Monday, and the first business day of the new year.  Over the long weekend, I immersed myself in card-making.  It felt SO good.  My hours are now occupied with a job, which leaves less time for crafting.  So...that long weekend...yeah.  It was glorious.   

I cut into a Webster's Pages patterned paper, and I love the mix of images right there on one sheet:  honeycomb, ivory frilly frames, cheetah spots, flowers.  All I did was add a bow and pearls, a sentiment from a new Papertrey Ink set, "A Cheerful Heart", and some pretty K & Co. die cuts.



I'll be back soon to share more fruits of my crafting labors.  Thanks for stopping in to see this one today!









Stamps: A Cheerful Heart - Papertrey Ink Paper: kraft - PTI; pattern - Webster's Pages Fibers: twine - Creative Impressions Accessories & Tools: pearls; rose die cuts - K & Co.
