Busy...but so fun!

Busy cannot describe life at the moment.  This last couple of months, I have needed a life raft at times.  BUT, I am happy to still be afloat.  So many exciting things have happened and one kinda sad.  I stepped down from Reverse Confetti.  I love Jen and her designs and I can't wait to see what she will have next!  Its good to have a little more time for things here at home though.  I am a room mom this year.  I love it!  So many fun kid activities right now.  I don't want to miss any!

I actually sat down and made something.  For no reason at all!  :)  I have piles of unused stamps and dies and this one has been staring at me this week.  Here is a quick card I came up with using the new sets from WPlus9 called Sending Sunshine and Sunshine Layers.  These sets?  A must have for your stash!

I used one of the dies to cut out the card front and then grabbed a Tim Holtz Ink Blender to add in some aqua mist ink.  I used my Misti to line up that sentiment.....do you have one?   What are you waiting for? ....and stamped it nice and straight!  I die cut the clouds and sun and added them in with foam tape.

The clouds needed a little something so I traced them with Stickles.  Sparkle adds so much, doesn't it?  :)

So that is it for today!  So happy to have made a card!  I am headed out to catch up on some shows I am WAY behind on.  The fireplace is going too.  Its freezing here.  I am SO very ready for Spring.  Thanks so much for stopping in today!  Have a great day!

  2. Gorgeous card Laurie! Love that teal sky. I was curious though and had to Google what a Room Mom was. We don't have that role in Australia, but interesting reading though.

  15. Super cute and happy card, Laurie!!! I do love those new WPlus9 products. So many fabulous releases recently from so many different companies, and I'm trying to resist the urge to buy everything. Like you mentioned in your post, I too have piles of supplies that have yet to be opened or inked up.

  16. Your card is a ray of sunshine, Laurie! Sometimes we have to force ourselves to say No even though it's difficult. You have been one busy gal with all the PTI binders and such. Take care of yourself and glad you found time to create just for fun.
