Finally a new card!!



I finally got to make a card today!!!

My Job, like a thief has been stealing all of my time for the last three weeks AND will be for the next few! I really should not have (so many other things to do) but I went to the HUGE CK scrapbook convention yesterday!! OMG!!! it was my first time goings as I am not much of a scrapbooker and again OMG!!! I can not believe what I have been missing! I was able to get into 3 classes taught by the gals from Paper Crafts Mag. This is one of the card designs...I just changed it up a bit...this is actually a challenge from over at CardVarks http://caardvarks.blogspot.com/

you are to make a card black/white plus one other color...That's it! I have a few other challenge/sketches to the right of my blogg if any of you are looking for something to do! The papers for this chard are all SU as well at the Polk-a-dot stamp & black ink. the Stamp set is Country Life from http://www.belindalandtroop.com/ Clear Artistic stamps. Can you see my cute little butterfly??The large flower is a SU punch & the center is a Marvy I believe. I will try to get back sometime this week as I have lots of other things I WANT to do & share.....So you all keep on crafting!!! can not wait to see all of your next creations!!!

Thanks for visiting!!!

Beautiful card Gwen! I love the guava, black and white together. I like your analogy of work "stealing" your time. lol. That's what it seems like sometimes when our have to's get in the way of our want to's.
