Just a fun card using some of my new faves: Garden Gnome stamp set (so cute!!!), cork alpha stickers and kraft cards.  Happy birthday to my friend, and thanks for the reason to create this cute card.

See how I left the "4" natural, with just a little ink on the edges?  See the peek-a-boo butterfuly?  I love this card.

Hooray!  The kids are back in school and quite frankly, they're happy.  They were glad to see their friends and even though they don't really know it, they like routine.

And that means more time for me.  I have my fledgling freelance writing career to focus on, plus my Close to my Heart business -- my passion.  Oh, and laundry, groceries and all of the household responsibilities I've taken on.  But I have also promised to find time for me -- for creating, for relaxing, for me.  Even if it's just an hour here and there.  It's important.  It's one of the perks of working from home.  So I'm going to make sure it happens.

But I think before I create even one more scrapbook page, I need to get my albums in order.  CTMH has some gorgeous faux leather books -- so soft and supple -- and I need to fill them.  I have TONS of completed pages that may just need a date added or a tiny bit of journaling, plus inserting into the album.

See?  I have a HUGE stack of completed pages to organize and take care.

Ding dong!

It's the Canpar guy.  My new goodies just arrived.  Two big boxes of new goodies. (Insert squeal of glee!) Uh oh.  I think my albums might have to wait until tomorrow.  But either way, it's me time.  :)

Close to my Heart

See what I'm up to on Facebook!
