Blah....

I've had a serious case of the "Blahs" lately. I've been so busy with work, volunteer work, card classes, and DT work that I've had this affinity to just sit and stare into space. Sometimes I'd wind down with a good book, and that helped a lot. (Stephen White's "Privileged Information is my current read--Love his work!)

I finally decided to sit down and color and have some "me" time with my crafts. I made this card pretty quick for this week's LLBC #17 which is a sketch challenge. Since the image took me a while to color, I went with the simple version of the sketch and didn't embellish or stray much.

Just finished one of my DT projects which was a really hard one for me. I think that's what was giving me my Blahs since I didn't really want to do it. But now it's done and it will be posted later this week. My FIRST LLBC October Guest DT card goes up Thursday! That one I'm really excited about since I love the way my card turned out!

Enough blabbing from me. I'm off to have some brunch and then maybe read some more.

Materials
Stamps: Lil' Lolita Ivy digi, CTMH Fringed Phrases
Paper: CC Material Girl dp, CTMH cs
