*What A Week!*

I apologize for not having been here in a while with a card for you...  I was busy busy on Sunday with all of the Easter dinner work (which I truly enjoy doing, even if I'm completely tired afterwards).  I managed to find some time to spend on the back patio in the sun on Sunday (and a bit on Monday) as we had some nicer weather and lots of sun.

Monday my life got a little chaotic with the delivery of a new furnace, water heater, water softener, air filtration system and dishwasher.  This meant that on Sunday afternoon Bruce worked hard to move stuff out of the way on the storage side of the basement to the creative side of the basement leaving me little to no room for crafting.

Tuesday was installation day plus I had work that had to be done so Bruce took over my desk in the basement with his laptop and an extra monitor and worked from home while the installers were here for 11 hours working on getting all of this stuff in and functional.

And now it's Wednesday and I have my space back... but I have a bunch of work I need to get done so creativity will have to wait.

I created this card a few weeks ago for one of the Less Is More challenges.  I have totally missed the deadline but that's OK... the challenge was to use a touch of red...
Items Used:
*Cardstock: PTI White
*Images: Inkadinkadoo Ornate Flourishes; PTI Signature Greetings
*Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black
*Embellishments: Christmas Red Stickles; Stampin' Up! Real Red grosgrain
*Challenges:  Less Is More #9



I only have two more cards in my stash to share with you.... I sure hope I find some creative time and some creative energy soon!
