Happy Tuesday!  I’m finally starting to get my days in line and actually remember what day it is.  I’ve been a little confused!

Yesterday I knew I needed to get into the studio and work . . .  but work on what?  That was my big dilemma.  I think maybe my mojo is still cruising around out there, but I knew I had to start somewhere.

Its been a very long time since I made a card or sat down at my sewing machine, so I figured that was a good place to start.  I also came home from CHA with some of the new Graphic 45 Curtain Call papers and had a feeling that I NEEDED to make something with them.


When I saw this page in the 8×8 pad, I knew immediately what stamp I wanted to use . . . an old one from Stampabilities, Take Time . . .  This is one of my favorite sentiments and one I haven’t used for awhile either.  To tell you how old the stamp is, the price on it is $3.99.  When was the last time you bought a red rubber, wood mounted stamp for $3.99?  The front side of this paper has the dancers and musicians with the music and then when you flip it over, it’s just the music.

I cut a border with the new Spellbinders™ S5-042 Fleur di Lis Doily Accents and decided then to use the S5-043 Fleur de Lis Doily Motifs to put my sentiment on.  The edges of the paper were sponged in Vintage Photo Distress Ink and the sentiment is stamped in Black Jet Black Archival.  For an added touch I die cut the smaller dies from S5-050 Rose Creations from the side of the paper I trimmed down.  I liked that side because it has a piano keyboard . . . way too cool!  To finish off the card, I added a big bow using 1.25” Black 100% Silk May Arts Ribbon.

Well I guess that’s it for me right now.  I hope y’all have a great day and remember . . . life is short (how well we’ve found that out this month) . . . embrace the adventures that come your way today!
