So glad it's Friday!

Hi there!

Just a quick post today to show you a simple card made with Hero Arts' Butterfly Flowers stamp. I stamped the image a couple of times on my main panel before coloring it with markers. Then I added a few dots with a white gel pen. I decided to put the sentiment on the inside of the card.



I've been so busy this week! What is it about the month of March? For some reason, life just seems to get crazy! If I haven't visited your blog lately, I apologize, and hope to get back to a more normal schedule later this month. Big day at work today. It's the dreaded inventory! I will be counting every, little thing in the floral department. Not my favorite thing to do, but. . . .

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Love this pretty pretty card Barb! :> LOVE IT! I hate inventory. I have been so lucky to have avoided counting in EVERY job that I have had! I am always the one working the floor with customers while they all count, lol! I don't know how I got so lucky maybe they never thought I would be good with that sort of thing meanwhile I have the best memory and am great at counting! Oh well I was always happy not to!

I love this, so bright and beautiful! I don't know what it is about March either, it's been my busiest month in a long time too and I don't have inventory to count. I'm a stay at home Mom (I try not to count things, lol, as long as there is 2 kids, that's all I must have for numbers, lol)!
