The past two weeks have been very busy for me; no time to make cards and no time to post.  Things are slowly getting back to a normal pace and I was finally able to get into my studio. I don't know about you, but it is a very therapeutic thing for me to take the time to make a few cards.  So relaxing.  Here is a card I made for the ANYTHING GOES challenge at Simon Says Stamp:

I found this pretty 8x8 paper pad at JoAnne's last week and wanted to play with it.  The papers are quite vintage-like with great colors, too.

It is a rainy day (much needed, too!) here in Ohio, so maybe I will have time to play a bit more.  Need to catch up with my blog list first!!!

Have a great weekend!

Joy I am glad you were able to find a few moments to enjoy working in your studio! You can tell your mojo was flowing from this beautiful card!

Hi Joy! I've been wondering where you've been hiding :) I hear you about being busy. School let out yesterday and it's been a busy couple of weeks for me too!
Lovely card- I like that textured bg- awesome! And the color scheme is so nice with that creamy white cardstock!
Have a nice weekend!

Lovely card! It certainly can be challenging to find the time for arting and posting etc. especially with Spring and the need to spend some time with outside chores too.That's why I do love a rainy day :) Have a beautiful weekend Joy.

Lovely card and paper. Know how you feel about being too busy to make cards. Took advantage of our rainy day and played in my studio after doing ironing and some other indoor chores. Hugs!

I was wondering when you would return to delight us with some creations! It is therapeutic to craft, isn't it? This card is a great color combo. That lovely butterfly looks like it might just take flight......sweet!
