Nice Thoughts and Taking a Break

Hi Everyone!

Sorry for the sporadic posting this week. Just been a bit busy with other things lately. This, however, would be a great opportunity for me to let you know that I will actually be taking a bit of a creative/blogging break for a little while. A couple of reasons for this: 1. I'm running a little low on creative mojo, honestly! When that happens, I know it's time to step back and take a break for a while. Second, I need to start working on holiday cards so they will be ready to mail out by Dec 1.  The last couple of years, I have done a 25 days of Christmas Cards Series of posts here on the blog, starting the day after Thanksgiving and continuing for 25 days in a row! Well, I can't blog 25 Christmas Cards if I don't make 25 Christmas Cards!! Sometimes, it's nice to just create for while without having to worry about the blogging aspect of it as well.

So, with the exception of Design Team obligations, and PCC Challenges here on the blog, this will be  my last post until after Thanksgiving.  Speaking of the PCC Challenge, there is still plenty of time to link up your creation in the current challenge: All About 3  Quick Note: I will only choose top 3 winners if there are at least 15 entries.


Ok, let's talk about today's card. Really CAS card today. This card was created as a result of leftovers from a card that I will be posting Friday. I thought the cuttlebug embossing folder matched the flower perfectly, and was a good way to add just a little something to the base of the card without detracting from the simplicity I was trying to maintain. The sentiment is from Verve Stamps. The flower is from a set of old dies I have which, I think are from Stampin Up. (?!) (Hint...you'll see more of these flowers on Friday!)

So that is all for me today. Have a great day, and I'll be back on Friday!
