Simple Things...Small Joys...

Yes...it's Tuesday already! My first full day into the new time change went better than expected. I did down a large travel mug of coffee, which is not my typical morning routine. So, I bet that helped! I'm going to drink some every day this week, just to make sure ;)! Did you have to spring forward? How did you make it through the day?

I made this card at the crop on Saturday. When I saw the SEI damask velvet paper, I had to have it. Then, I made two cards with it that night, so I picked up one more sheet before leaving to make sure I didn't run out!

What do you think about that pattern paper? I think 'chocolate' is my favorite color, but I like to spice it up with other vibrant colors. How about those buttons? Aren't they too cute? And then...the pom pom trim. It's such a new trendy in the paper art world, right?! Had to have that too. I bet you can guess the other color I bought it in...CHOCOLATE! :) I can't wait to use it!

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all have an energized day!

Another cutie! Ok, so pom poms are in now? I've always just liked them for my scrapbook pages.
