My husband is in Hinton, a small town near Jasper National Park (we live near Banff National Park), this weekend, working at the final biathlon competition of the year; an event that was rescheduled from a few weeks' back, when temperatures plummeting to -30C made running it absolutely impossible. Even though we had plans in the works, he has to do what he has to do, and go where he needs to be, so we'll do some adapting and adjusting when he's back. In the meantime, my ownsome time will be invested in catching up on some neglected (sorely neglected *shame-face look...kind of*) chores: laundry... card-making... vaccuming...card-making...watering the plants, poor bedraggled things...card-making. Oh, who are we kidding!! Card-making AND catching up on comments are tops on the agenda.
Speaking of commenting...how, how, how do I fall so far behind!! One minute I'm caught up, and in the blink of an eye, all you fabulous crafters have inked up, die-cut, water-coloured, splattered, misted, embossed, fussy-cut and paper-pieced a zillion more! Stop it! (I don't mean that *grin*)! I need to let you know how your cards bring joy to my days so..since you're not slowing down, I'll need to pick up my pace!
A couple posts to share some of this week's creations (hmmm...maybe that's the fallen-behind answer - because 'quick card-making' doesn't happen with me).
The incredibly talented Amy Tsuruta works magic with any stamp/product she lays her hands on; one of her specialties (among the many she has): coffee-themed cards. She is, bar none, the Queen of Coffee cards, as a quick visit to her blog (check out this one...I'll wait...isn't it fabulous!) will reveal. This week, with some new products arriving, I found my 'muse' in Amy...and her love for coffee.
With the layout inspired by Retro sketches #106
and the colours from Cure for the Monday Blues #9 (brown, red, blue...swoon),
here's my little entry....
This one's dedicated to you, Amy! Hope you don't mind if I join you with the occasional coffee card!
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!
