You're so Smooth!

Happy Wednesday Everyone,

I canNOT even begin to express the full on school busy-ness that has encompassed each day of this week - from driving back and forth from dr.s appts, filling in a ton of papers, creating checklists and then creating more checklists - and slowly crossing things off - to finally today seeing the little wee ones head off to school - wow! what a week - and its only wednesday!!!

Here is a pic of my two wee ones heading off to school - can't believe my little DD is old enough - how did that happen - feels like she was just learning to crawl the other day! Last night we got them to bed early to get them ready for the big day today so I had a few minutes to scrap - and was so excited - I made two cards with the same materials. One of my fave images from the Chillax set that Taylor's just released is this cute cute blender and smoothie cup! I LOVE how fun the image is and the sentiment" You're so smooth" cracks me up :)

I used Taylor's most recent TECC sketch #79 for this card:

Here is the SCS sketch 243 for this week - and I used what I had lying around from the card above to create the same kind of card but with this week's sketch:

I loved how easy it was to create these cards - I tried to keep everything simple and quick - Here is a picture of both the cards together:

Card Details:
Paper: K&Co Martha Stewart and stash
Ink: Taken with Teal SU!
Accessories: Accordian ribbon from Taylored Expressions, spellbinders, bling Kaiser craft, circle cutters from CM, copics, liquid glaze, corner rounder

I can't wait to make some more - but for right now - my laundry is calling - right now is the time that I SO wish I could wiggle my nose like Genie and all the chores would get done!

I hope you have some time to Chillax today!!!
Thank you so much for visiting my little blog!
Big hugs to all!
Sankari :)

Cute picture and card! My M's in school and I wish I can say things are peachy for her. Goodness! If it doesn't get better I hope after we move (did I tell you we're moving to the UK next year?) that things will be better!
