*Busy Week*

I am so sorry to not have posted more this week... this morning was the first chance I've had to create all week. I did a lot of running around and working this last week and when I had some downtime, there was no desire at all to create.

This week has been Spring Break for my boys which has meant no alarm clocks for anyone but Bruce (poor guy).  This morning I managed to get out of bed at 8am (instead of after 9 like it's been all week) and was down in my craft space just a bit after 9.  In between some blog surfing, a phone call and watching "Ellen", I created this card for you to see....
Items Used:
*Cardstock: PTI White; Stampin' Up! Kraft, Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, Early Espresso
*Images: A Muse
*Ink: Stampin' Up! Early Espresso
*Tools: Big Shot; Spellbinders Blossom Nestabilities; Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder
*Embellishments: Doodlebug sugared brad
*Challenges:  Less Is More #8; ColourQ#78



I had a lot of fun creating those big bulky flowers last week that I decided to make another one this week... it's smaller and only 3 layers, but since it's cardstock instead of patterned paper, it's just about as thick and bulky as the five layers of patterned paper.

I'm off to create a little more... but first I think I need some breakfast!

Enjoy your day!
