I'm a busy girl...

What a weekend...husband out of town, me, with very BAD sinusitis and an ear infection, left to defend myself with two kids, soccer try-outs, and a dance recital...WHEW!  And in between the craziness - the only thing that kept me going - my paper and ink therapy...aahhhhh.

Here's what I've been working on...

For some reason, I was having such a hard time with this color combo.  I tried and tried to come up with something, but that darn turquoise kept throwing me off - so I let it sit, and came back to it in the morning, with a fresh cup of coffee, and finally...the mojo was there...

This one was a fun challenge.  I decided my tic-tac-toe would be Emboss, Dies, and Buttons.

And yet another another...

And before I sign's a picture of my little peanut at her recital.

That's all for now - have a great week!
Live well,
