hello my friends
i thought i was going to have plenty of time to be around and craft more but sadly it hasn't being the case.
i do not always feel good and when i do i have been trying to play catch up with the house, garden and life.
it is always something with me, but hey, i am alive!
after doing some errands today and taking Lulu for a well needed walk i started making a card. just a simple card because if i get too picky i wasn't going to finish it today, lol.
4.25" x 5.5"
the background papers were scraps i have been organizing again, lol.
did i mention i re-organized my room again? ...it is a never ending chore. wink-wink
i made the card front but i was not sure about what i wanted to use to embellish it.
while looking out the window i saw our with hazel tree we just planted last week and thinking i can't wait until i see the flowers next year. it then hit me, lol. since i have the fringe scissors from martha, i decided my embellishment was going to be a witch hazel flower---flowerdisco's style that is, hehe. the strips were going to be thin and messy---just like the witch hazel one. i glue the strips one by one on top of a small round scallop. i trimmed off some ends, inked them -of course, and attached that beautiful chipboard circle i had for a while and had forgotten to open the box. the colors matched so well to the already made card front. don;t you love it? i do---i love it a lot
BTW---THIS IS HOW THEY LOOK LIKE

a my pink stamper "Big Hugs" stamp, and voila...what a pretty card in about 30 minutes.
(not counting the deck sweeping-lol)
and i hopefully i finish my son's room this coming week and have it ready for when he comes for thanksgiving break.
i still have some plants to plant before the ground freezes and Lulu needs a bath. that is at least half a day fluffing and fluffing---the never stopping shedding of pugs, lol.
well, love you all!
and even i haven't been around much i have seen a lot of you are doing great and have been doing very well with your blogs. i am so happy for you all.
