Been Thinking



Hello Friend(s), been thinking about you a lot.  My parents are in town this week so this is a pre-scheduled post. Crossing my fingers and hoping it works. I often times think of all the lovely creations that I'm missing but by the time I go to check my Reader I know I will become overwhelmed...best to just start afresh after the house is back to normal...


Today I have a post up over at the Artful Delight blog featuring items from the new July Card Kit. (One amazing kit, let me tell you! You can find out all the contents here...)


There is no stamping on this card, just some inked edges of the wonderful patterned and solid paper included in the kit (I did add a touch of felt for the tab, but that is the only thing not included besides the ink.)


I also followed the July sketch I designed for Artful Delight. Please consider playing along, because if you win you have a choice of receiving the August Artful Delight scrapbook or card kit!

  3. Love the card Karen, it is my favorite kind to make (no stamping).
    I too hit the "mark all as read" on my reader when it gets too overwhelming.
