SO much free time!

Ahahaaaa - had you there, didn't I? I don't have free time! In fact, I am totally stressing out, because our County Fair is in a little over a week, & the boys & I are all entering projects. I don't know why I thought it would be fun for ME to enter - all it is, is added stress. And my boys play baseball all 5 nights this week. So .... free time?? Uh-uh!

BUT somehow I did find time to make a card. You know why? Because I no longer have any "stuff". I realized that all my time was taken not by actually making the card, but by looking for all the "stuff" - the papers, the embellishments, the sentiments ..... that right there is a time sucker!

And here's something funny - this image is colored with Copic markers. I hardly ever used Copics even when I made a LOT of cards. In fact, I got rid of most of them. I have about 10 left. That's the funny part. It was actually easier for me with just the 10, because I wasn't stressing about which colors to use. I didn't have many choices! hahahaa

The papers are OLD. Basic Grey Infuse. One of my first paper packs. That is one thing I *didn't* get rid of - any of my Basic Grey pads. I will always love them :)

And .... I still have plenty of Stickles, lol. Funny though, I have about 12 bottles - many colors - but I always reach for the clear. Stardust is my favorite. 

I'm entering this card in a few challenges:

7 Kids College Fund - Anything Goes (alcohol markers optional)

Stamp & Create - Let's Get Wet (summer image)

Tilda's Town - Summer Fun

Lovely Hanglar Only (which I guess now includes Magnolia) - Flower Power

Thanks for visiting ~ hope you have a fun-filled week!

Michelle, this is so cute! I love how you colored the image and I always use stardust stickles, too! Great to see you dabbling in card making again. I haven't stamped since November and actually made some cards the last couple weeks, too. Hope you and your family are doing well! :)

It turned out beautiful so it just goes to show if you are talented you don't need a bunch of stuff...and the coloring is beautiful along with the card design.

oh how cute! You did so well with a few products. Not sure I would be that brave. I have all the Copics and could never part with them

Great card, Michelle! I guess there is "water" in that watering can, right?! LOL Thanks for playing along with the Stamp and Create with Magnolia challenge. We'll have another fun one tomorrow if you find the time to play along again! :-)
