What a week!

I’m having this deadline on Friday and it feels like I’m working day and night. Since I left dear son in the loving care of my parents on Sunday, it feels like I haven’t moved from the computer. Except for trying to make a card or two (pure therapy!). Here is today’s try to make a card, but this one was hard. Couldn’t get ANYTHING to match, so I finally decided to go monochromatic white, and actually do this card for ME, dreaming of summer, new hope, new life with butterflies and vacation with NO DEADLINES!

Tale Flight

Paper: Bazzill Basics
Stamp: Papertrey Ink
Ink: Versa Fine
Decos: Butterfly from Heidi Swapp, pearls from Kaiserkraft, brads – American Crafts,

The design is based on the beautiful sketch of the week over at 2sketches4you, and I also tried my best with Pam’s challenging challenge String art over at 365 cards. (Gloria and Rose – do you think she’s on that coffee again???)

See you!

So special! so elegant. if that you come up with when you're busy, go on... :)
and I'm afraid Pam does drink a lot of her strange coffee... some odd challenges she brings us.
As for dreams, you can come over here... you can actually smell spring, even though we had some stormy days lately.

and huge thank you for the award. it decorates my sidebar.

hugs,
