Enjoy your journey and be safe

Hi there, it's a lazy Sunday afternoon,

After such a busy week, I am taking advantage of a quiet lazy day. I've been hanging out all afternoon in my craft room, first I actually cleaned it and then started to play. I have been wanting to play in the challenge over at House Mouse and Friends  and was finally able to get a card finished for the challenge before the deadline of June 7th.( I am just barely meeting it here).  HM & F had their first blog hop (which was amazing, I found so much inspiration from the design teams creations), and combined it with a challenge #70 of Good-bye/Farewell. In order to qualify for some awesome prizes you had to hop along with the blog leaving some love at each of the design team's blogs, create a project for the challenge and be or become a member of HM&F blog.

Here is my creations using Dragonfly-ing HMUR 1008, my base is PTI Ripe Avocado, SU design paper (older design paper) PTI black satin ribbon, flower are Prisma and pearl brads are from stash, sentiment is stamped with Memento using Making Memories stamp. Scallop borders were created with SU and MS punches. Dragonfly wings were covered with Icicle stickles

It was nice to be able to play with stamps, paper and bling after not doing so for over a week. Now that our GS graduations is completed, Hunter is out of school for the summer, I hope to get back to my routine and have more time to play. I have so many images I want to work with so I am just going to have to set time aside each day for me time!! I know easier said then done :).

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you find my card candy as fun as I had creating it, until tomorrow have a wonderful rest of your weekend.
