More serenity

Another week has flown by, and another week that I haven't posted anything on here!  I played along with Tuesday Morning Sketches and I actually managed to post it on here before the time ran out (I think it must be a first!), so here's my card and I kept it C&S.

Card/paper: DCWV citrus stack
Ink: Archival ink jet black, Distress Ink walnut stain
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Sizzix tattered florals die, textile embossing folder, ribbon and buttons

This is the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches

I love the serenity prayer, it helps me a on a daily basis, plus it's easy to remember!  My head can be all over the place at times, and I'm really easy distracted, which is why I think I don't post much on here.

Stamp: Verve Stamps serenity
Paper: First Edition Paper rose garden
Ink: Memento rich cocoa, distress ink brushed corduroy
Accessories: corner rounder punch, pearls, ribbon, Martha Stewart quilted edger, flowers and doily

This is the sketch that I followed over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp blog

butterfly wishes

Yep, more CBS, I'm loving these butterflies.  I dug out two distress inks that I don't usually use, 'cause I'm going to try and use my older craft stash more and now that I've moved into a new room I found tons of stuff that I have forgotten about.

Stamps: Clearly Besotted Stamps butterfly wishes additions and a little sentimental
Ink: Distress inks festive berries and peacock feathers
Accessories: Perfect Pearls perfect pearl and pearls

And this is the sketch I followed from CAS(E) this sketch

Another CAS card

I am way behind on my cards this year, and I really don't know why.  Things are a lot quieter at home now, but the days are just flying by I can't believe it's February already.  Anyway, at least I made a card, and I played along with Clean & Simple challenge

Stamp: Clearly Besotted Stamps fancy florals and many messages
Ink: Distress Inks fired brick, spiced marmalade and peeled paint
Accessories: CBS fancy florals dies

Get well soon

As I needed a quick get well soon card, I decided to play along with CAS(E) this Sketch again.  I love making CAS cards.  I'm way behind at making cards, so I expect there's going to be a lot more CAS cards on here.

Again there's a great sketch to follow:

Stamps: Clearly Besotted Stamps you're a hoot and many messages and Waltzing Mouse Stamps off beat backgrounds
Ink: Memento bamboo leaves, potter's clay and rich cocoa
