Tuesday? Yes - Tuesday.

It was a holiday here in Massachusetts yesterday - Patriot's Day - so I'm all screwed up and keep thinking today is Monday!  But it's not, it's Tuesday.  So happy Tuesday!  LOL

Yesterday was just beautiful - it was so nice to open the windows and let the fresh air into the house.  I even sat outside for a bit, it was wonderful.  I spent most of the day trying to get a head start on some of the stuff I'll need to have ready for when I'm moving.  I feel pretty accomplished and after the next weekend or two, that's it.  It's out of my hands.  LOL  I tend to get anxiety over this stuff, but I'm forcing myself to take it easy - I'm working on what I can, and the world won't end if I don't get everything done anyway. *sigh*  LOL

I did find time to create for a few challenges this weekend, and I had a good time creating.  My first card is for the:

I used one of the gorgeous images from CS Designs, New Oceans Sentiment Round, colored with Perfect Pearls and Prismacolor Markers.  I also used lots of glitter and added 2 gray pearl stickers to the starfish.  The background card and the ribbon are spritzed with Silver Foil Smooch Spritz.

My next card is for the

  

I used a background image from Make it Crafty and the mermaid is from Tiddly Inks.  I colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.

My last card is for:


I used one of my favorite Sugar Nellies stamps, Flower Girl.  I paper-pieced her dress, and added a flower brad.  DP is from My Mind's Eye.  Ribbon tags from SU!
Peace.

  1. Some awesome sentiments/statements on this cards and some fun sketches. Love the beach theme on the first two - I am about ready for a beach trip! Just the sound of the water would melt some stress away. Good luck with your packing project - I hate to move! Last time I moved, I threw away, gave away or sold every tiny thing I could remotely part with and it was still awful. LOL!
