Meeting a challenge deadline!!

Well, I finally downloaded photos into my laptop, so I'm actually going to meet a deadline for 2 challenges that inspired my following card!

. . . and here's my card:

As for Embellish's last challenge I didn't meet; here's the colour palette

Here's my card:
I really liked this colour combo, so I also used it to make the following card for my cousin's baby shower. 
 I just LOVE those little hangers I made from the thin wire pulled from wired ribbon!!   I couldn't resist making another onesie/hanger card for our friends who had a baby boy last week (they named him Tyce--obviously)
Finally, I played around with some techniques with my new favourite stamp set--PTI's Delightful Dahlia. 
Off to do some homework!!  They joys of being back to school!!

Thanks 4 your time!

Where I've been . . .

So I haven't posted since June!!  That's right!  June!!!  In fact, I haven't done much blogging at all . . . here are some of the reasons why: 

  1. my son Caden turned one on June 1st and he is one BUSY boy!!  This leaves me no time to craft during the day, and I'm exhausted by the time he goes to bed for the night.

  2. we had a fun but busy summer.

  3. I gave myself some time away from blogging because it started becoming more of a chore.  I was giving myself too much pressure to finish challenges and post them . . . and let's face it, as a busy working mom of 2, I didn't need another item on the "TO DO" list. 
Don't get me wrong; it doesn't mean I haven't created at all.  I have!!  In fact, I even made a number of cards inspired by challenges; yet, I never got around to posting them in time.  Also, I have kept visiting many of my favourite blogs, but I didn't allow myself to start commenting, because I knew that would suck me back in. 

My blog is called "Time 4 Creativity", and what I wanted to give myself over the last couple of months was that: TIME.  It's been nice to just create for the sake of creating, without the pressure of entering challenges (only to be disappointed when your card is never selected).  I've also continued to create to sell.  My cards are still selling quite well at my aunt's spa, which has been great!! 

Any way, it's been a lazy Sunday around here, and I thought I'd hop back on.  Here are a few photos of some of the cards I made this summer:

This onesie stamp has become my favourite for baby cards!

I'm also loving PTI's Delightful Dahlia stamp set

Other random occasions--

Thanks 4 your time!
