Wish

A quick clean and simple embossed white on white card.  I've always have admired these type of cards, and I'm finally giving it a try.

Today was my first day back to work after almost 3 months of leave.  It was a good day, but I came home and crashed...I was exhausted!  I'm sure it will get much better by the end of this week.

Fresh Cut Friday

Echeveria
Rosette-forming soft succulent and can get as large as a dinner plate.

Succulent plants are wonderful plants for those not born with a green thumb...that would be me with these particular plants 

Due to their minimal needs, they are difficult to kill and thrive in virtually any environment.
Good to know!

Succulents come in a variety of types and many bloom throughout the year.
I can't wait for it to bloom!

Isn't it beautiful! 
It reminds me of a jade plant, which reminds me of a jade necklace, which I have been wanting for the longest time...!!!

I am joining Fresh Cut Friday at Liz's Rose Vignettes. Please stop by to see her "sweet little shaggy Spider Mums"  and other bloggers' fresh cuts.

Hello & WOYWW

Sometimes when I come up with a card design/creation on my mind it looks simply stunning, but then the results are not so much...LOL!  I like this card, but I don't think it turned out that great.  I think my card mojo wasn't all there yet...

Even though it doesn't feel like fall weather around my neck of the woods yet, I've been crazy working on several fallish projects lately for swaps.  This is a project on my desk that I'm almost done with.  It's a halloween banner that spells WICKED.  All I need now to finally finish it, is the ribbon to tie it all together!
What's on your desk?

White on White

A quick and simple white on white card!
I used this card as my inspiration made by Marie-Alice. 
I didn't change much, but I did embossed all three layers, and raised the layers with foam tape for a 3D effect. I omitted the rhinestones, and went with a black first layer instead of green.
