Muse #27



My parents are still visiting, and while it is wonderful to have them here, I am going a little crazy knowing that all my favorite blogs, stamping companies, and challenges are out in the blogosphere posting interesting things that I don't have time to see.  I think I have a problem.  

Feeling a bit like a high schooler sneaking around behind my parent's back, I managed to sneak into my craft room for a few moments today to make a card for this week's Muse #27.  Now, I had to make a card this week, because the muse is one of my very favorite bloggie friends and besties--Tracey McNeeley.  And, my card was super quick to make because I pretty much duplicated Tracey's card--good design will do that to me.

Tracey's Card


I used Pretty Peonies, a sentiment from PTI Mini Blooms, Hero Arts Fresh Tomato, SU Pear Pizzazz and PTI Winter Wisteria Ink, and some sequins that Kim, Tracey and I split.



Gotta get back to the 'rents.

Thanks for stopping by.

  10. Joyce I love the idea of you sneaking off to your craft room! I think we definitely have a problem - maybe we need a 12 step programme? I think your take on this challenge is just beautiful. CAS perfection. Enjoy the rest of your time with the 'rents.

  20. You were so naughty, sneaking around like that! What would your children say?!! I've been feeling like that all summer ... so many posts I've missed, but the kids aren't going to want to hang out with me forever so I've got to take advantage of it while I can, especially in the summer.

    Beautiful card!
