I just wanted to share some creative fun and catch up with my siestas. YEP I'm still alive and kickin! *grin* I know I have been MIA for a bit but I was adjusting to working outside of our home again. It's going really well, btw. I really enjoy my job and I love learning new tasks (daily so it seems). I do tons of billing...tons of phone calling...and well just tons of things during the day. I could go into detail but I know you gals wanna see some stampin action.

Here's a little something:

Forgive the bad photo...I really like the way this turned out...the quote is funny to me because of the fact that the butterfly is talking but it's a great quote if you forget that it's a flying critter supposedly being so insightful.

Here's the quote:
"Just living is not enough," said the butterfly. "One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower." ~han christian anderson

The quote on this card is quite fun too:

Do not put off till tomorrow what can be put off till day after tomorrow just as well. ~mark twain
Both of these cards were super quick to make. The quotes are from a pack of quotes by Sara Branch. I did not use any stamps on either of these due to the fantastic quotes that were so sweetly decorated. I made the quote the focal point and added some Basic Grey, ribbon, and a few embellies. Seriously simple! I am getting so much better at utilizing my time and making things with a simplier style. Sometimes it hurts me but then some days I make creations I truly treasure.
Hugs and Blessings to all!
