Do you ever say that?
There are a few times every year when "everything happens at once" for me. This past week has been one of those times. For awhile there, I felt like I was going to drown, but I've now come up for air, things are settling down, and I'm catching up. . .whew!
I've got some really fun things coming up here on the blog! One of them is on Monday, so please stop back then! Also, toward the end of this month, I have some exciting news to share! Something that is so cool, that is so fun, and that I am so excited for! I can't wait to share it with all of you!
Okay, I do have a card to show you today too. I've been lacking in the mojo department since coming down with a cold and cough a couple of weeks ago, but I've started to feel better, and I think it's slowly coming back. I was playing the other day with the Hero Arts, Newspaper Flower, using this month's challenge colors. Wasn't sure how I was going to add it to a card. Then I remembered a fabulous 6x6, Echo Park paper pack called, Yours Truly, that my sweet friend, Ivy sent to me. It's not only perfect for Valentine's day, it has most of the colors in it for the Hero Arts challenge too! Thanks again, Ivy - love each page!
Here's my card. I added the two tiny, purple hearts so ALL the colors for the challenge were used.
And here's a close up so you can see all the dimension I gave to the flower. The pretty pearl brad was in my RAK from Joy - love it! :)
Before I let you go, I also want to apologize for not being around the last day or two to comment or visit your blogs. I am not only getting ready for the fun things coming up on my blog, my son also has a friend coming to stay with us this weekend. His mom is a wonderful friend of mine! She is also a card maker and I can't wait to see her! Still getting the house clean for them, doing a little at a time. I should be back in full swing, visiting your blogs, after the weekend. I am planning on taking some time out to join in the Hero Arts Flickr group, 90-minute scramble on Saturday, just so I can keep the juices flowing and add to the mojo. Hope lots of you will play along too! Sweet Karen will be hosting!
Hope everyone has a great weekend! I'm off to clean a little more before getting a good night's sleep! Thanks so much for your visit! :)
