I Have An Enemy ….

I have an enemy… one that I am sure many of you are familiar with … {TIME}.

My brain is scheming & dreaming for a good portion of the time I’m awake.  I’m thinking up activities I’d like to do with the kids, of things I’d like to make at the craft table, of phone calls I’d like to have with friends, time spent with loved ones … If I did half the things I imagined, I’d have very happy kids, friends and family!  But alas, with a very busy life and oh-so-much to fit in, time is my enemy.

I struggle to fit in the basics of life and then have to cram the extras on top.  But it’s so important to shift things around and make the extras happen because they are the icing.  And we all know the icing is the best part!

This birthday set for a friend has been rolling around my creative imagination for the past 2 weeks, but its taken me this long to make it a reality.  I’m truly in love with the Watercolor Wings bundle.  The different layers of the butterfly are magical and if you haven’t already noticed, the previous Butterflies Thinlits set coordinates with the new stamp set & framelits.  It’s all so wonderful!


The source of my layout & colour inspiration this week was JAI 266 for their colour combo:

And Freshly Made Sketches 190 for the layout:

Not a colour combo I’d normally use.  And I can’t say ovals are a big feature in my cardmaking either.  So, as always, challenges provide a great platform for the creative soul.


You’ll notice a few retired products in the mix until I’m restocked with new catalogue products.  The wait for “big brown boxes” to arrive is excruciating!

I’m enjoying having my Gift Bag Punch Board to play with.  I think I’m going to have to apologise to my curvy keepsake die soon as it’s gathering dust while I fall in love with my new punch board.

Too many favourite products!!!  Blessing or curse?  If I had more {TIME} I’d like to find out!  Kelly x
