It's so hard when I have to and so easy when I want to. ~Annie Gottlier

Isn't that the truth?

I would so much rather do my creative things then scrub and clean, but can I create in a dis-organized area? No it disrupts the flow. I have to stop and say where did I put that______ ?

I'm off to pick up my wonderful daughter from her camp today then the plan is to return and purge!

Then I can be free to create once again!
This lovely card was created with CTMH card stock and inks and the scallop edge is from a cut file from this wonderfully creative woman. I won her blog challenge with this cut file. http://capadiadesigns.blogspot.com/search/label/blog%20challenge
here is the cut file make sure to thank her if you decide to down load this file.

“Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.”

Passion .... is my passion papers, ink and glue? Is it love and affection?

Textures, color and photography? Family Love and Life...

Today my my mind runs away from me with ideas of scrap booking and card making my dining room table is covered with stamps glues and all the things to create.

Here are some of my recent creations.

Friends to the end created with scraps from previous cards.

Also a Mothers day card made with CTMH Sweet leaf, and Black I love the simplicity of this one beautiful!!

Welcome to my blog!

Just to get my blog started I wanted to share a scan of my latest creation.This will soon to be off in the mail to my daughter who is away at camp. I know its only a week... but they do love to get mail.
This card is created with some wonderful spring papers found at Joann's for a price i could afford.
It matches the wonderful Close to my Heart inks and papers.
Black, Dutch blue and Citrus Green.
The paper sparkles with glitter that does not show up here. It is so beautiful live.
Stay tuned for more art work I am on a roll
