Life has been kind of like a 3 ring circus around here lately. I have three major events happening over the next few months. We are moving our store location which involves an entire renovation of the new building we purchased, as well as the colossal move of our 3500 sqft showroom. Our son James is graduating high school and I am throwing him a big bash for his graduation/US Army enlistment party. And then my “little boy” will leave for Basic Training one week before his 18th birthday. (sniff, sniff)
So playing around with some cute and whimsical images really helps me to tune out the persistent voice in my head that keeps saying “Aaaaah, I’ve got so much to plan and not enough time to do it in!” Because the reality is that I am a planner. I love to plan, write and complete lists and I usually get what I need to get done in plenty of time because, I am a good planner. But I am also a worrier (so many of us are) and it’s the worrier who won’t shut up, so I shut her up by distracting her with crafting. LOL
I bought another TPC Studio stamp set at Tuesday Morning last week. This set was only $1.99! After I masked and stamped the scene I cut the image into 5 panels. Each panel was then mounted onto white cardstock with just a small space between each one and then I clipped the corners with a 1/2″ circle punch. Somehow the paneled effect gave the whole card a more vintage look, which I really like. As a final touch I added glossy accents to the ball and the stands.
I am entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge and also into A Blog Named Hero Free Style #22 challenge.
