First After Weddings Post!

   Well, both of my precious daughters are married. Wow, what an emotional time this has been. I am trying to re adjust my mindset but so far no luck. I just can not imagine what I am going to be able to do with all my time. I know that between now and the first of the year things will be busy (not nearly as busy as they have been!!)  So come the first of 2013 I will be able to make some changes hmmmmmmmm lots to think about!
    I am trying to get a bit of mojo going so thought I would start with this simple card for Pretty Pink Posh's 10 minute dash.

 Well here is my card it took 8 minutes 12 seconds once I pulled together my supplies. (That includes the time it took to run and get a piece of toilet paper to wrap around my finger that I cut trying to get the ends of the ribbon right in a hurry! Still not right LOL)

  I could not find any paper in the yellow family that I liked so used manilla cardstock and Tim Holtz distress ink in mustard seed, really like the way it turned out. It is amazing how quickly you can change your paper with a bit of ink! The ribbon is some that was thrown in my odds and ends basket. Last year we had a party in November and these ribbons were tied around the flatware. So happy I saved it! The stickers and bling were from my stash!
  I am going to send this to my daughters new Mother- in -law. Who has been unbelievably supportive and helpful  to her.
 Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog. I am so looking forward to getting back to regular posts very soon as my life finds it's new norm. Look for a give away soon!

Have a blessed day,
