Ohmmmm, ohmmmm...

See that title? That is me meditating. Today's card threw me into fits of calm and before I knew it, the "ohms" were coming out of my mouth. LOL! That's a bit of an exaggeration but I couldn't help myself. I used a stamp from the MFT bubble bin last week... Annie LaPointe's bath tub series which are always fun for me. In My Mind's Eye, they come together nicely with delicate florals and soothing geometric prints. So check it out!

I LOVE the new Pretty Please collection from My Mind's Eye. They all look good together! I will be pulling these papers out again really soon. It was nice to pull out something new over the weekend and make a card. As I have mentioned, summertime is cutting into my scramping time. I love having my kids home but I really miss my alone time every day. I generally stamp for "work" to stock my Etsy shop just as much as I stamp for fun and when you are lucky enough to do something you love every day, it is pretty hard to "go without." Oh, woe is me! Hahaha!

So about the card...the sketch came from an SCS sketch on 5-20-09. I saw it used by Dawn Easton on her blog and I filed the idea away for a rainy day since I loved her interpretation of the sketch so much. I love how the arrangement showcases the coordinates so well. I figure I will market this as a friendly notecard or even as a "get well soon" sorta card. The bathtub image brings about that whole "spa day, pamper yourself" feeling so I bet it would work well for that.

Well, it is about that time...the grocery shopping, errands, clean up the kitchen, finish the laundry point of the day so I'm off for now. I will leave you with my supply list and a sincere wish for a lovely day. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Gorgeous papers and color combo on this card Kyla. You could use this for just about anything. Just leave the inside blank. That layout is perfect! I've fallen behind this summer on blogging too, but life happens in the summer and that's a good thing too:))
