Just Goofin' Around.....

Good morning friends!  I've had a little bit more time to play since I am no longer designing for Provo Craft.  It has been a bit bitter sweet, but I have to admit, I am liking the lack of deadlines and pressure.  I love being able to step into my craft room and create just for the pure joy of creating.  I am not even sure  I like this card today, but it was therapeutic to play around. I used various Spellbinder's dies and a Melissa Frances chipboard house.  
 I used this large acrylic gem for a pop of color......
Some glitter, rhinestones, and my girly, wintery, vintage house was complete! 

My dear daughter, I believe, has banged her tooth.  It is turning brown and we are going to the dentist to see what they say about it.  I am praying she doesn't need a root canal.  She has had only one cavity her entire life and that was just a simple filling.  When you have Cortney, little things can become big things......so I am crossing all my fingers and toes that it's not as bad as I think it is! 
Off to school again.....I need to finish decorating and setting up!
Have a great day!

LOVE your card!

When Club Ruby Designers' closed I was both sad and relieved. I didn't miss the pressure of deadlines and I missed the pressure of deadlines lol. Sort of a Tale of Two Craft Tables :D. I really did get a lot more crafting done, but I'm really enjoying being leisurely about it and enjoying the process of it. But with Christmas just around the corner, I really need to step it up :D.

Michele,
So glad you're able to create just for fun again. It feels good doesn't it. I

Hope it's nothing serious with Courtney and they can fix it easily.

Have a good day!

Sometimes deadlines can ruin the fun.
I hope it's an easy fix for Courtney. I imagine a root canal would be really hard on her. It is on me, hah. Good luck.

Love your card! Even when you are just playing around you are an inspiration. I hope Courtney's tooth is an easy fix. I totally agree that root canals are no fun!

It's been pinned so I can try to recreate it with my cricut...I'm just starting my spellbinders collection, these dies are definitely being added to the list of must haves!!!!
