For the year and a half I was un-employed I had plenty of time to create cards and post entries on my blog. Now that I'm working in another city three hours away and I stay there monday through friday my creating and posting time has been reduced to the point of being almost non-existant. I can't believe that today was my first post since the end of June. I will have to make a better effort to do better.

End of the season shopping is always great ... especially when you find entire collections (or at least the remainders) on clearance. Recently I found various K&Company products from the same line all in a clearance bin. It included everything from paper, to stickers to die-cuts to tags. It makes coordination and layering so much easier.
I started with an A2 size (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") white card which I covered with a portion of paper. I looked through several sheets and found the one that matched the other pieces best and also offered the best layout ... a fairly solid background with just a hint (in this case corner) of flowers. To create depth I edged the card with brown ink. In the opposite corner I trimmed and added a 3D tag with the same basic concept; which fortunately was a mirror image and provide perfect balance. I edged the tag with brown ink as well. On the flowers form the background paper I added glittered 3D stickers of similar flowers. To finish off the card I added a 3D glittered butterfly. All I need is to decide the occasion so I can select a text!
