Daydreaming at Work...

You know, some days I just can't seem to do anything but daydream about all the stuff I'd love to be making...there have been a lot of those days here lately.  Can't help but think of all the cards I need to make and projects I need to come up with for's just too much for my brain.  The problem is, by the time I get home from work, I don't have the energy to get all these great ideas out of my brain.  It's a vicious cycle!!

I'm a list maker, so maybe I need to start prioritizing the items that need to be done so I can focus when I do have the time and energy at home to be crafting.  Does this happend to anyone else?

Just a little groovy card...

I finally spent a little bit of time in my scrap room this weekend...mostly cleaning & organizing and finding places for all the stuff I've been moving around, but last night I was inspired to make this card.  It's a birthday card for my niece, Maya, who will be 11 this week.  She's a groovy girl so this seemed to suit didn't hurt that I had some 80's music on in the background.  :) 

The patterned paper is from Michael's...Recollections I think is the paper line.  The metallic paper was bought at WalMart a few years back and the ribbon is from Hobby Lobby, you know, those small spools you can get for a buck.  The sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Ink.  I cut the front of the card shorter so you can see the purple zebra print that lined the inside of the card.
