there is more to life...


To my American Friends, Happy Memorial Day!

Thanks for joining us for the EAD Designs Blog Hop!
{it officially starts at 7 am pacific}

A big Woot Woot for our May Guest Designer, Anita!!!

You should have arrived here from the Spectacular Shellye's blog:


If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop, which is the EAD Designs Blog so that you don't miss out on any of the fun!  Remember that every week there is FREE Vinyl to be won by a lucky duck!

Here's what I made for today's hop:


I truly adore quotes...quotes that make you stop and think:

there is more to life than increasing its speed.
-Gandhi-

That is from the Tea Time Stickerz set:


I'm the first to admit that I wish there were more hours in the day but realistically sometimes I think I need to just slow down.

The feltie snail is ala Pebbles, the journaling card is Crate's Peppermint Collection...do you see the smidge of zig zag?

I'm entering this into 

The Catered Crop

and

Gallery Idol 2012

This is my last entry...the best part?  I had fun making all the cards I entered and no stress...that's the icing on the cake:)

I'm the end of the hop...hope that you enjoyed yourself!
