Mother's Day Tulips

I am alive. Wow - I did not mean to go so long without posting. I've been a terrible blogger. I'm sorry! Things have been busy here lately and to be honest, I have been in a creative slump for over a month now. My mojo is slowly creeping back. Thank goodness. In personal news, I got a new job at the end of March. I really like it which helps when I work the morning shift that starts at 6:30 a.m. I certainly feel fortunate to be working with the economy & unemployment like it is.

I do have a card to share. I managed to find some motivation a week ago. Most of the products used are Papertrey Ink. I am a huge PTI fan. Their quality is above all the rest. I've decided to use them solely for my cardstock, ink and ribbon. Although I do love Ranger's Distress inks too. I want to try watercoloring with them sometime soon. I'm not too thrilled with the inside, but it'll do. Below is the full recipe for the card.

Well, hopefully I'll be back soon with something new to share. I work mornings Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. I'm off Tuesday, so maybe then I'll get some cards made. The Waltons Season 9 arrived in today's mail so I'll be spending the rest of the day relaxing on the couch watching that. I sure do love that show. I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Take care.

Stamps: Wishing You & Mother
Ink: Raspberry Fizz & Fresh Snow
Cardstock: Dark Chocolate
Paper: Basic Grey
Accessories: Buttons, Square & Tag Nestabilities
