believe.

happy saturday peeps!

Just gotta love saturday mornings...I managed to sleep in until 4:30...that's 2.5 hours later than what I've been usually waking up...{I know...crazy...it's my old age}

I whipped together this card...seriously as I'm live blogging...


LOVE the "believe." sentiment which is from The Craft's Meow The Merry Best set:
{although the jury is still out on the glittery white embossing powder...grrrr}


I was inspired by the current CAS-ual Fridays Challenge:


I love to work with tags...such a fun small canvas to create with and makes it easier to create when you are low in time.

All the paper is ala Basic Grey Nordic Holiday...really diggin' that line!

The Clean & Simple sketch worked wonderfully with CFC28:


Anyone headed out to the CKC Seattle today?  I'm volunteering from 8 - noon!

I have my entire afternoon planned....volunteer until noon...power shop until 1:30 and then hit the new Hobby Lobby that is north of Seattle...dangerous for a girl that 'should' be on a crafty spending freeze:)

  26. HI Amy! First I want to say 'happy blog bday'! And I woke up this morning telling myself that I had to find a banner for your flashback challenge...I found and posted one that has the word 'believe'...and then I come over here and you have the same word on your blog from yesterday! Oh my, I didn't know you posted it...it goes to show that I was thinking about you! LOL
    I love how you added the doily on top and loooove your word! *smile*

  28. {4:30 AM????? REALLY! - NO wonder you get SO much done! YOU are such a rock star! WOW, girl! I've got to be as "well seasoned" as you are in the years, but I can PROMISE that I don't wake up that early, EVER!
