take care of yourself...



I wanted to play along in the Traveler's Inspiration Challenge #1 over at Traveling Mama...If you haven't visited Tina's blog, you should...it is truly a feast for the eyes. Seriously, check out that pic of Moroccan slippers...how absolutely gorgeous is that? I'm a slipper girl :)

After some thought, I decided to go clean & crisp for this color challenge. I went with my Hambly papers....the sheen is absolutely magnficient on them. The photog simply does not do it justice. The circles are all nestled on my favorite kraft by Speckletone. The text is from one of my current fav sentiment sets by SU, Sweet Little Sentiments. I used the Top Note die from SU and finished it off with some bling....hope you like it :)

I'll be back tomorrow with a fun 365 Cards Challenge!!
