2013 Hard already.......

  Yesterday was a hard day to stay "intentional." I am not sure why but just could not keep my motivation going for what I should have been doing. So I made an intentional decision that if I could not make myself attack my to do list that I would attack my craft room and see how far I could get. I am very pleased with the progress that I made in the room. And I am pleased that by making an intentional choice I was able to redeem the day and though when my head hit the pillow there were things I wish I had accomplished all in all I feel like the day was a successful one and that is all that matters to me. This is what I need to do to keep depression at bay!
   Okay onto the crafting part of this crafty blog. I made a card last night and was going to post but alas battery in camera was dead. I made this for a black and white challenge for a yahoo group I belong to. I am going to enter it in Flutter by Wednesdays "something new" challenge. I have visited this site many times but never entered. The reason WOW there are some extremely talented people in that challenge. There are a lot that can COLOR! (We all know that is not something I do well at all....) so I have always been intimidated. But I decided that I would put myself out there this week.
  I created this card to accompany a prize that I owe someone in my yahoo group. I cut the butterfly using my zing with MTC. This was a new file  for me. The black pearls are also new. Who would ever have thought that I would want black pearls! The butterfly is cut from a subtle glitter paper but it does not show well in the picture.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by today,
and take a moment to be intentional in your choices today.
