Life in Dreams

Happy, Happy Monday!  I hope your weekend was enjoyable and you had a little time to relax a bit!  For me, even a 10-minute cat nap does wonders in the middle of life’s daily activities and the weekend is usually when I find that little snippet of time for such a luxury.

Today, I’m sharing a card I made Sunday afternoon while the wind was whipping wildly around the house and the sun was calmly smiling down, unfazed.  It’s another clean and simple (CAS) card, but I’m on a CAS kick these days and rather enjoying myself!

Stamps – Prickley Pear (Glimpses – sentiment, Mini Butterflies Clear Stamp Set)
Paper – textured white cardstock, SU Basic Black (textured) & Real Red cardstocks
Ink – SU Basic Black & Real Red
Accessories – Prickley Pear Mini Butterflies Dies, red gemstones, foam dots (popped up red butterfly)

    This is adorable, Melissa! Such a fun use for the new mini butterflies. I love how you showed to use just the die cut shapes here.

    Love your blog (I'm now a follower). The sentiment on your card speaks volumes. Beautiful CAS card. I also wanted to comment on one of your side badges, “One Little Word”. It's very interesting because just started reading a book titled, “One Perfect Word” by Debbie Macomber. I think this might be a book you'd enjoy. BTW: Love coffee : )

    Hugs and Blessings,
    Susie ~
