Musical week is over. Back to crafting now!


A musical week it was and I am happy to say that despite tremendous exhaustion, we had a wonderful time and learned a lot this past week. Me and my daughter spent this past week at Stevens Point in a Suzuki Summer Institute, as we have done every other year, and the child thrive despite the rigid and busy schedule. I love every minute of it all.

I am glad to be back and being able to spend a bit of much needed time in my craft room. Oh, I have missed my space so much. I did some organizing and then decided to prepare a CAS card for the PPA 311. I used the new Flourishing Thinlits for the center image, and the matching stamp set Flourishing Phrases for the corners. I stamped that in Smoky Slate as I did not want to stand out too much. Not sure it can be seen in the picture, but I like how it is very subtle. The Smoky Slate layer is Textured Embossed in Perfect Polka Dots TIEF, and cut using the retired Labels Collection. Rhinestones were added to the "buds" on the cut out image and that added a special touch to this All Occasions card.

Hope you enjoyed your visit today. Thank you for stopping by. Be well
