Time for a Post!

You know it's time for a blog entry when your husband asks, "What's going on in craftland? You haven't posted anything in awhile." Well, the Easter weekend was busy, and I needed a break. But today is my day off, so I'm taking advantage of the time away from "coffeeland" to be in craftland.

My niece, Mikayla, turns 9 next Monday. She's very crafty, so I wanted to make her a card with lots of color and shimmer. This is a very simple card, made with the Level 3 Hostess set Time Well Spent, and I'm pleased with how it turned out. I'm not all that free spirited when it comes to coloring, though. I over-analyze color combinations and want everything to be just so. I was getting tense until I remembered that this card's for a child. She's not going to be critical; she's going to enjoy it (for 20 seconds, if I'm lucky) before she opens her present.

Gotta get this in the mail, so ta-ta!

Looks like the perfect combination of sweet and spunky for a 9 year old! Delightful color combo, too!
