Season's Greetings

Check this out!!!! Even I cannot believe that I created 8 cards that are all exactly the same!!! Sort of all the same, I did try to spice them up a bit with moving the balls around within the embossing folder.  I love this color combination. The Aqua Mist by PTI is so Tiffany blue.  I love the simplicity yet complexity of this card so much so that they will be OUR Christmas cards this year. Eight will probably be all that I send out too.  Everyone is always talking about  using the assembly line technique and "Whipping" cards out. NOT!!! OK I guess if I consider that I "whipped out" 8 cards in one afternoon that would actually be good timing for me. I was getting so bored that I just wanted to be finished already. Although I am bored with the design, I continue to think of different color combinations that would be cool.  Any ideas?

I took a day off from cards yesterday and went shopping with my daughter.  We had such a good time at the open air market in Catania.  I was on a mission to find the perfect pair of shoes to go with my outfit for the Khaki Ball!!!  Mission Accomplished!!!!!! I could not believe my luck. Not only did I find the PERFECT shoes but they came with the PERFECT price.  3 euro ($4.27) - - - - - How freaky is that. The box alone would cost more than that and yes the box is even cute.  Maybe it isn't the box but that library tag? The market is full of cheap shoes - cheap quality, cheap price. However, there are 2 or 3 vendors that sale designer shoes so obviously it is hit or miss. I just happened to get lucky. FATE.....mixed with end of the season sale.

I am itching to go create some of the ideas floating around in my head and even thinking about playing along with Lauren Meader's sketch challenge.  Drop in tomorrow and have a FABULOUS SATURDAY =0)
