Celebrate!

I love taking my time to make a card. I love the whole process, picking out paper, pouring a glass of wine, finding matching embellies, picking out just the right sentiment, listening to 80's alternative music, layering papers, all of it. But seriously, sometimes you just need to make a quick card. Because there's laundry and dishes and work and school and cleaning and Pinterest and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. And there's no time for layering and picking and finding.



I found a sheet of My Mind's Eye banner stickers and clapped my hands with glee. Add some baker's twine, pre-made flower embellishments and a stamp...and you got yourself a quick card.




There's my quick card! Now I can go catch up on my Beverly Hills Housewives, what is up with Adrienne's extensions this season???

Thanks for stopping by, friends!
