It's Been Awhile!

Not only have I been a few days with no posts but it has been several weeks since I played along with a challenge. There have been so many cute sketches but I have been too busy to jump in. When I am strapped for time, the only way I make challenge cards is if the sketch "calls to me" with an immediate idea. Otherwise, I make something that is already in the hopper. Since my "hopper" pile is a mile high already, I have pulled from my prepped ideas to speed things up. I am ready for this break neck pace of life to slow down before I blow a gasket. I am pooped lately! Only a little longer and the kids will be out of school, my part time work will be over for the season, and my hubby will be done with his doctorate as well as all work travel for the year.

So, did you come to read my whining or to see a card? I thought so! Today's card is my contribution to the Our Creative Corner Challenge that asked us to make a card using our favorite color combination. That was easy enough! I simply love blue and green together so I pulled out a piece of plaid from my older stash and got to work. Baby cards are always handy so this one came together quickly. I may make a girly version when I get back to having some free time but for now, the boys will be solely represented in my card closet.

My techniques are pretty simple and my supply list is too. I doubt there are any surprises on there for the scrampers among us. For those that don't stamp, I doubt you even care what I used for this card, right? As always, I thank you VERY much for stopping by to read my blog and I hope you will hang in a little longer until I am back with full devotion. Be back soon!
