Sneaking in a card...

Hello! Sorry it has been so long....summer is BUSY.
Here is what we did yesterday---
Went for an early morning run.
Got kids fed...took my youngest to gymnastics class.
Then, took her to swimming lessons until noon.
Came home and grabbed lunch and then took my oldest to tennis lessons from 1-3.
Then, picked her up and she got showered and changed for her piano lessons at 4:30.
Then, picked her up at 5:00 and made and ate dinner.
Then, my son had baseball from 6:30 till 8:30 and then the team went to grab a bite to eat so I didn't get home until after 10.
Whew!
Life is crazy with three buggers all different ages...but it is fun.

Unfortunately my crafting time is pretty limited these days and looks even worse on my blog. A lot of things I have been working I cannot share at this time. But, I did manage to sneak in a bit of crafty time and (finally) ink up this new set that was designed by a sweet, amazing friend, Kimberly Crawford. This card uses her set Very Square Sentiments from her Mint Motif line:


I coupled this sentiment (one of my favs from the set because I make so many birthday cards!) with some October Afternoon designer paper (Fly a Kite)and some PaperTrey Ink felt and ribbon and buttons. I used a jumbo scallop die from My Favorite Things to create the edge.

The little crocheted flower is made by a very talented lady, AesaLina. You can find her crochet flowers and fun covered buttons at her etsy store, PixiePetals.

I will have more to share.....soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
