I have been quiet with the blog this week. It's great that the kids are back to school. For me this is like a fresh new year starting. I reorganized my stamp sets, AGAIN! I always do this when a new catalog comes out. I started training at the gym again, something I use to do daily and that I had not done in a while. Today my body is in pain. But good pain, I love it! I also attended team meeting yesterday and I had not gone in such a long time because I couldn't fit it in my schedule. It felt good, I missed my demonstrator friends so much. For me, since I join as a demonstrator, the friendships has been one of the best advantages. Not many jobs you get a heartfelt welcome like that! Angela made a beautiful Halloween card. I got home and was inspired by her to make my own version. I love ruffles and ribbon, lace and distressing, so I adapted it to my own style and taste. It was fun to play with this card. Love the outcome. Thanks Angela for the inspiration!
I just love the waffle paper, it's a must. I created a accordion fold with it and it just made this card stand out!
