I'm late! I'm late for a very important date!
Truth be told, I'm not late at all. I can't help think of this line whenever I read this particular sentiment from There She Goes's newest set - Good Times!
Hello peeps! Did you miss me? I was busy cleaning the house all weekend that left me no time to stamp. But that's not a bad thing considering all that I got done. Spring cleaning started early in the MacLean household! I made The Man clean out his clothing closet. He was using it as a giant dirty laundry hamper, so I made him clean it up. (Seriously, why can't they ever find the actual hamper?!) Then I reorganized the linen closet and hung the louvered doors we bought on Craigslist for the closets. That dominoed into cleaning the attached shed/unfinished area of the house, so I could at least walk in there again! It was a very productive weekend and I'm glad we tackled it now and not in the summer time, when it's the last thing I want to do!
Anyway. enough about me, back to why you popped in! :)
I whipped up this card this week using the Good Times set from TSG because after seeing all the eye candy from release week, I had to revisit this set and use the two bunnies on a card because the girls did SUCH a great job with them!
I wanted to make this one a much more lighter and brighter card than my last one, so I pulled out some papers from Basic Grey's Kioshi collection and borrowed the layout from this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch #106. I added some adhesive pearls for the circle elements and colored up the clock from the set for the smaller, scalloped element. I still don't own the small scallope circle nesties from Spellbinders, so what I use instead is my ever faithful Fiskars decorative scissors to do the job. Sometimes my first and last scallop don't always line up, so I usually start the cut in a place where I know it will be hidden - like under the sentiment banner. I may not have the latest stuff, but I sure know how to use what I have got to the fullest! :)
Ok, well that's it from me today. I'm hoping to play again in my craft room tonight and whip up another card for you. I desperately want to play with all the unused stamps I have piling up!
Have a good one!!
