CTD245 and DJS104

Wow... it's been a while since I posted. Wish I could say it was due to a fabulous vacation but... unfortunately my back is trying to get the better of me!! Wowza, I've never had back problems {thank goodness} and I'm hoping this resolves itself soon!

Anyway... this is the first day in almost 2 weeks that I was able to climb the stairs to my little studio and make a card.... having withdrawal I tell ya'!!

Finally inked up a set that I received a while ago... MFT's LJD Peaceful Wildflowers and matching dies. The Color Throwdown colors this week (groovy guava, barely banana, melon mambo, kiwi kiss, and white) was the perfect match for flowers. Can you believe I still had my groovy guava and barely banana ink pads AND they were still juicy!! Used this week's Deconstructed Jen sketch for the layout.





Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!
