Thinking of you

I'm so jealous of crafters who post more than twice a week! How do you do it?? I find myself so wiped out after work most nights that it's difficult to get the creative juices flowing. What gets you crafting after a long day at work? I'd love to know!

Having said that - I made a card this afternoon/evening after work to enter the Annabelle Stamps Say It In...Yellow, Lime & Chocolate challenge.

Thinking of you (2)

My yellow and choc don't quite match the colour sample, but the three papers I chose complement each other quite well which is the most important thing for a CAS card! The 'yellow' paper is from the 'Peachy Keen' collection by Kaisercraft, while the 'choc' and 'lime' papers are from the 'Hey Birdie' collection (also Kaisercraft).

Thinking of you (1)

The flower was created using the Tattered Florals die by Tim Holtz. I also cut up one of the flowers from the die to make the leaves (Jennifer McGuire is right - a flower doesn't look finished until you add leaves!)

Thinking of you (3)

The wooden button is from Heart Supplies and the sentiment is Hero Arts (All Occasion Messages).

Thanks so much for looking, and have a great day!


  1. OMGosh... this is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Thanks so much for playing along with us at AnnaBelle Stamps!

  2. Lovely! :> For me since I am at home I can find time. But I hear you, on busy days I have no energy either! Although I usually only create when I have a card in my mind already. Much faster that way! :>

  3. Lovely card, Jess. The wooden button is cute!

  4. Love it Jess! Another striking CAS design!

  5. Such a beautiful design! I craft at night to relax, and I like to craft on the weekends and preschedule posts too for the week, I think a lot of people might do that?

  6. Lovely flower and the little green leave really pops, the wooden button is ideal.

    You can view my card here

  7. Hi Jess, Yep I pre post lots of my cards too......gets a bit confusing sometimes though:)
    I really like the white on white you used for this card and it's so nice to see a flower made and not curled........I have to do that! Thanks for playing along with us at Annabelle this week:)

  8. So beautiful Jess. Those flowers are lovely, topped off with that great neutral coloured button. Glad you could play along with us this week at AnnaBelles.

  9. Love white on white Jess, it always looks beautiful! The flower and layout is so fresh looking!
    I craft during the afternoon and at night when I can...sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't lol!
    Thanks for sharing with us this week :(

  10. there is no other words for this one Jess, but STUNNING!!!!!!!!!!! love all the white and the CAS layout!
