Life is What You Make It

Hello.  Did you have a great week?  I have been busy working just about every day.  Time seems to fly by a lot faster when you work full time.  I was a stay at home mom for years before my son started school and the days seemed to drag on.  Now, it flies by.  I take every minute off either catching up on blogs or crafting.  I made this card for the new color combo for CR84FN.


I just love this MFT flower die.  It embosses the petals perfectly.  I had to pull out my pretty Girls' Paperie paper that my sweet friend Lynn bought me while I was living in AL and couldn't get to and Archiver's.  Thanks again Lynn.  I am currently hoarding this paper.  :)


I found this amazing blog called Magnolia Rogue.  They have some of the best photography pictures and color combos.  Kate, the owner was kind enough to let us use her amazing color inspiration boards.  


I used the fabulous sketch from MFTWSC.  What I LOVE about the sketches at MFT is that they coordinate with their stamps perfectly.  It makes for using their products a piece of cake.


Don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team.  They have some amazing projects for you.
