Framelits Saved the Day

I have been busy all weekend. I expected it because it was my first weekend since I returned to the office and the last weekend before the school year begins. I did all my regular household chores such as laundry, dishes, cooking, cleaning, paid bills and cleaned some that I did not have time to do any paper crafting. Last night while enjoying a bottle of Smirnoff Ice Mango, I managed to quickly put together this card. I do like creating challenging cards every so often, but it's also very nice to make easy and simple ones without compromising beauty. I have fallen in-love with the Big Shot Framelits, Edgelits and Sizzlits. I appreciate how it takes away the cutting and gives such a precise and clean cut each time. I hope to one day own all of them. Grin. Take this card for instance, just a couple of card stocks, DSP, Stampin' Write markers and some pearls and it's done.

Well, that's about it for this Sunday's post. It has been cooler the past couple of days here in Northern California, and when I say cooler I meant mid 90's instead of the triple digit heat of the past week. I am already looking forward to fall. That's it for now...more chores await. Have a fantastic week, everyone. Thank you for stopping by.
