Just playing around....

Hi everyone!  Happy Saturday afternoon. I have been so relaxed today.  I changed my routine a bit and did my grocery shopping last night, so I was able to sleep in and then just play at my table when I felt like it.  A huge change from feeling like I have to cram my time in at my table when I can manage it.  I think I'm going to make this my new routine.  I love it - I feel better and I've actually eaten better, too.

OK, so part of this relaxed day, even though I should be working on design work (which I still will), the first card I made today was just for the fun of it and playing with some challenges.

So this card is for CAS-ual Fridays (use text) and Just Us Girls (sketch).

And look!  I actually got purple to photograph well!  Whoo-hoo!!!

I hope you enjoy my card and that it inspires you to make one small change in your life that could reap big rewards.  My card isn't fancy and highly decorated.  The point of CAS right?  But it's the fact that I didn't feel so short on time.

Stamps:  Hope (Paper Make-up), Breezy Butterflies (Raisin Boat)
Ink:  Pale Plum, Perfect Plum (SU!)
Card stock:  Neenah Milled Ivory, Pale Plum, Perfect Plum (SU!)
Tools:  Cuttlebug, Floral Fantasy emb folder, watercolor brush

Red seems to be my photo-nemesis...but then, I don't seem to use a lot of purple! I love the fun crinkles on the flag piece.
Isn't it funny how changing a few things around really makes a difference? I was always a night owl, and it wasn't working with the kids, etc. I took a loooooong time to turn myself into a morning person, and now I generally get up at 4 am and end up with hours of crafty time. In the morning. So not the way I used to be, but I'm much happier this way!
