Tiana

It feels so good to have a little bit of time to create today. Never mind that I am in sweats, my hair is not fixed, and you cannot find a stitch of make up on my face. The important thing is that I am creating, right? {wink}. Who needs to LOOK pretty if you are creating pretty things, anyway? I guess the best scenario would be to look pretty WHILE you are creating pretty things. But that is not the case today. Notice I did NOT include a photo of me in this post.

I used the Mojo Monday sketch this week (#131), along with Jeanette Lynton's GORGEOUS Color Me Monday combo (Baby Pink, Desert Sand, Garden Green and Hollyhock...all Close To My Heart colors) to make this 3.5" x 8" card for my niece, Tiana's birthday.

Close To My Heart products used: Friendship Alphabet Stamp Set Small (C1401), Noted Backgrounds Stamp Set (D1412), Topstitch Level 2 Paper Pack (X7120B), Bella Level 2 Paper Pack (X7114B), Bella MyStickease (X71114C), Life Delights Level 2 Paper Pack (X7089B), Versamark Pad (Z891), White Daisy Embossing Powder (Z673), Desert Sand Stamp Pad (Z2118), Round Sponge, Dimensional Elements Perennials (Z1139), Autumn Craft Buttons (Z1283), Bamboo Waxy Flax (Z906), 3D Foam Tape (Z1151), Corner Rounder (Z578), Baby Pink Organdy Ribbon (retired).

Oh, and don't forget the wonderful "Dare to Dream" special this month. If you've ever thought about becoming a CTMH Consultant, NOW is a great time. Click here for more details.

Karen, I love your ability to pull together all the elements on your projects to create a work of ART! I don't care whether you're wearing sweats or diamonds, you are an amazing artist.

Karen,
What a beautiful card! One of my favorite things is to create while I'm VERY casual... just as you described... hair pulled back and no make-up! I'm more creative when I'm comfortable. :)
Thanks for sharing your creations and inspiration.

Very cute card! Hey how did your son's all-star game go?

Stellar masterpiece my friend...now did you have to give away our secret? So it sounds like you usually create in full make-up, hairdone topped with your queenie crown. Paleezzze! If I'm home creating, I might still be in my jammies! Make-up is reserved for special occasions...but my other secret is I might fool ya cause I have permanent eyeliner and eyebrows! The permanent lipstick has worn away from a few years past, but who knew?
