Always Believe

Hello everyone! Well my co worker loved the retirement card I made which made me feel good. It feels strange to not him there though after so many years.

Yesterday I took a blogging break and didn't post a card, but I'm not going to let you down today! I have a card I really like that uses a darling image from Squigglefly that Cheryl Alger drew called Almost A Prince

(click to enlarge)

I just think this is the sweetest image! It's like she's hiding the wand behind her back so she can whip it out and catch the frog by surprise.

It's colored with copic markers and the border punch at the bottom is one of the new deep reaching punches from Martha Stewart. I used a few pearls and some tiny flowers that matched the color in my designer paper. The sentiment is computer generated.

I'm heading off to a stamp camp this afternoon which should be fun. We'll be making Christmas cards. I'll be sure to share them with you too!

Lots of things I want to remind you of: first off is to be sure to check out the daily nab it at Squigglefly. They have had some really super images up for next to nothing this past week!
Next don't forget to get in on Stef's color challenge at the Squigglefly group on card universe. Her colors this week at yellow, blue, and brown and you have until Friday to get your card entered.
And last, but not least be sure to stop by Vicki's Saturday Spotlight challenge and see what she's got going on. I never had a chance to get a card made for last week's challenge!

I think the time change has me messed up and I feel like I don't have time anymore! I'm still adjusting. Anyone else having issues with that?

Well, have a great Saturday and thanks for looking!

I feel the same way about the time change. I haven't gotten much done in weeks, hoping to change that this weekend!

Have fun at stamp camp!

What a cute image- you did a great job coloring it. I agree- she is hiding the wand to surprise the frog. I love the border punch you used- the whole card fits together so well.

The time change has given me a jolt too. Just in the past few days I have rediscovered my productivity.

About the time change - I am out of whack the entire time until the time falls back in fall. I am not a morning person, therefore, I arise later in the mornings and lose a greater part of each day. I am back in my normal routine again when the time changes back.....wish there was NO time change at all!!
