Are you busy?

As many of you know I am a busy lady! I am in the middle of report card time again (UGH!) and between my design team commitments and all the other fun papercraft stuff I get to do, making cards takes a back burner during this time*shock!* Don't get me wrong I love my job but it just means I have to prioritize things. Taking a "card break" is a good thing. It's a regain your focus kind of time.

Today's card was inspired by my friend Ang who is opening a children's boutique in our small town. Thank goodness I tell you! We really need a place to buy toys and outfits for our kiddos. Ang recently asked me if I would make some cards for her boutique and of course you KNOW I couldn't let her down. I decided to start with an uninked stamp set from Stampendous. I have had this stamp set for nearly 3 months now and I am only just inking it up.

Oh Alli! I LOVE this! It's so simple and clean. (see! You don't use brown all the time!) ;) And the BEST part is.... I have a sheet of the 'girl' version of this paper.... and I THINK I might own this set too! This is really sad... but I think I bought it last year and never opened the package. Thanks for the inspiration!

Sorry to hear you are busy with report cards...that's a bummer for sure! I agree though, it does give you a break and you can refresh yourself.
