Its a busy sort of a weekend ....

>> Friday, June 8, 2012

I have a to-do list when it comes to cards. A little funny perhaps, but with so many occasions constantly popping up I try to make my cards specifically for certain individuals, instead of just stock piling them (though I do that too!). If I don't keep a list of all the things coming up, I tend to forget what I need. Somehow the fact that I needed a card for an upcoming Jack and Jill Party escaped me until this morning (the party is this weekend) so I decided I better get right on it. I turned to some of my favourite challenge sites for inspiration and decided to try and keep it CAS, something I'm not the best at, but do enjoy the results. Over at CAS-ual Friday's its all about Polkadots! And seeing as I love polkadots, its was the perfect challenge to play along with.

SUPPLIES
October Afternoon Paper
Antique Buttons, floss, ribbon
Martha Stewart Ink

Challenges: 

Now its off to clean the rest of the house and get ready for a busy weekend! Coming from a big family to just my husband and I, I had this funny little idea that life would actually be a little less busy. Doesn't seem to work that way though! There is far more on my plate these days than there ever was when I was single, and its only going to get crazier!

 My kittens are experts at taking it easy. Maybe I should follow their examples one of these days?

Ah well, such is life.

and I positively love it :)

This card has such a "WOW!" factor about it! I had to stop and take it all in for a few minutes. I love all of the little details that make it special. Thanks for playing along with this week's sketch!
