Holy Cow! It's been a whole week since my last post! That certainly wasn't my intention, but last week was a real whopper. Fortunately for me I got some craft time this weekend to help de-stress and relax. And I made this little card to cheer me up:

I just love that Cosmo Cricket patterned paper! So much so, that I decided not to add any other image. The tiny little tag, ribbon and button finished it off perfectly. And I'm back using my Polka Dot Basics set from Papertrey Ink. I forgot all about that set, but, oh, how I love it! And I could quite possibly be addicted to the Fiskars border punches. Aren't they great?!?

I hope you are having a great weekend. I'm keeping it low key, psyching myself up for the busy week ahead. Thanks for stopping by!

This is such a sweet card! I think the polka dots are a perfect compliment to the patterned paper.

Adorable! Is that Cosmo Cricket new? Five days until I can go to a scrapbook store again. Now I can quit pack ratting materials.
