Hello Handsome

I have 3 card kits sitting around that I haven't touched yet and it's driving me crazy! Pair that with little bits and pieces of old kits and I'm on crafting supply overload. This stamped image is from the Valley High Card Kit. You know it's bad when I have no idea what month the kit came out in...

FTL 260

Happy Sunday evening everyone! You know it's a productive day when I am able to get work on a card! I thought this Fall to Layout 260 would be easy breezy, but it took a lot more creative juices than I thought. I had a hard time with the specks on the side. I originally had cute little enamel dots all over but didn't like it so I peeled them off. Then I took the plunge and used some Liquid Pearls and you all know there's no changing your mind with those suckers. So I added. And I added. And I added a few more. I don't love it, not one bit. But the deed is done and I am ready for a late dinner. Have a great week everyone!

Card Rack

It seems like all my posts for the past year have started with, "I'm still alive!" Well I most definitely am still alive and although I'm not crafting as much as I used to, it still plays a part in my life! Last spring I took the leap to ask a locally owned boutique owner if she was interested in carrying my cards to sell. Fast forward a year and a half and I'm still there! Apple Box Boutique is this cute little shop that carries a whole assortment of goodies from Annie Sloan Chalk Paint to Barefoot Venus Bath & Body products. The owner, Leanne, is one of the nicest, sweetest ladies I have ever met. The friendship was instant and I am so grateful to have met her. Since my cards have been carried in her store for over a year now, we looked at some options on how to increase their visibility so my hubby built us a custom card rack, I painted it with some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and now it sits tall and proud inside Leanne's store.
