Another DT Challenge

This will be quick. . . . I don't know about you all but the days are just buzzing by so quickly I feel like I barely have time to catch my breath!! Before I know it the clock says noon and then it's oh no what's for supper??? etc., etc. I remember those days before I had children when I was working "a real job" (LOL!!) and the hours would drag on and on forever, I long for that. I was telling my friends on Saturday at my WCMD event that I've taken to calling my van - my "Day Spa" since it's where I relax, where I put on make-up most of the time, where I sometimes get to listen to grown-up music - it's become my oasis! Ha! Sad isn't it. Ok, that was all free! :)

Here's another card from one of our past DT challenges (see this post). This challenge was to create a card with Kraft, White & Soft Sky. I've been seeing a lot of this color combo or close and I love it!!! It makes such a pretty card.

I also had wanted to try one of those cute criss-cross cards by Beate. It was so fun to do! These cards are easy and there are so many possibilities!! For my card I used a Kraft base. I stamped with White Stazon on acetate for the triangle, backing it with Soft Sky. The set is a from My Favorite Things called By the Seashore. This is a pre-release stamp set which at this time is ONLY available if you are a member of Paper Pretties - how cool is that??!! Members who subscribe to the MFT card package get this before anyone else!! I LOVE this set - it really reminds me of Maine and the beach where my parents live. So pretty!! I was happy with how this card came out.

Thanks for stopping by - I guess this wasn't so quick after all, especially considering I started this post at 9 a.m., saved it to finish it later and forgot about it! LOL!! I kept thinking all day long that I had posted it already - oh boy! :) I do appreciate your visit!

  7. Beautiful card...love the beachy feel.

    And I had to laugh in agreement regarding "where does the time go!" At least you wonder about dinner at noon, it's usually 5pm before I go "oh no, what are we going to eat?!" :-)
