Gathering Love by Carmen Medlin

Hello Happy Crafters! Did you have a great weekend and do anything fun? Life is so short and you need to take time for YOU and do the things you love to do. Me, I am trying so hard to quit putting things off until tomorrow and enjoy something every day. It makes my life much happier even if I only take 10 minutes.

My parents moved from Nevada to Yuma, Az and I flew there to help them unpack.  It's hard for after I unpack something I have to ask where it goes and many of times my mother has no clue where she wants it! Eeeeekssss it is frustrating to say the least! I do have her kitchen scrubbed, polished and clean from corner to corner. All the cabinets and drawers are scrubbed and polished inside out!! Why can't I find this kind of energy when I am home???? Why? Because I keep putting it off until tomorrow!! LMBO.

This is one of the cards I made before I left and it is "Gathering Love" from the Carmen Medline's  Natural Beauty Collection which was created exclusively for SCACD. All the images in this collection are gorgeous and so easy to use for a variety of cards! My daughter-in-laws birthday is on July 27 and this image reminds me so much of her! Beautiful and happy go lucky personality!

Copics: Hair E25, E23, E31, E50, Skin E11, E00, E000. Dress: V04, V00, V000, Sash: BG75, BG72, BG70. Grass: bunch of greens!!! Sorry didn't keep tabs.
Flowers: Prima SCACD
Ribbon Charm: SCACD
Scroll Die: Marianne Dies
Paper: 6 x 6 paper pad: SCACD

TIP OF THE DAY:   When you cut your card stock do you ever end up with fray's or stringy cut?  If you pull on them it rips the paper more and cutting it off usually ends up with an uneven cut. Easy Peasy! Use an Emory board  and file up and down on the side. Not from side to side for this will fray it more . just up and down and watch it disappear!!

Colleen, I know exactly what you mean about putting things off until tommorrow! I'm the worst about doing that. ;D

This is a beautiful, beautiful card. And what a sweet way to describe your daughter-in-law! I hope she checks out your blog to see that!
