Life Doesn’t Have to Be Perfect


Good morning!  I had a quiet evening in the studio last night while watching DWTS so I tidied up a bit and perused some challenges. I saw the colours over on CR84FN so decided to play around with some papers and see if anything came together.  This is what I came up with :)  I also wanted to crack open some new Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstock that the sweet people over at Bazzill Basics sent me to play with :)  An endorsement!!  I feel {almost} famous!!  I LOVE their cardstock!  It’s 100 lb weight so it’s nice and sturdy for card bases.  The only things that worries me about the paper are the colour names…Butter Mints, Peanut Cluster, Candy Corn…really, I may just try to eat it all!!  They all look and sound and feel so delicious!! ACK!! Teehee!  For today’s card, I used Marshmallow (white) and Icy Mint (light blue).  YUM!!  Thanks for stopping by!  The weather is still lovely and the deck is getting a real workout!! LOL  Cheers!

Fabulous take on the colours and love that sentiment.

LOVED watching DWTS last night. What an amazing group of dancers - hate to see ANY of them go! The Samba William and Cheryl did was my favorite - for various reasons wink, wink. Have a great day :)
