I'm not sure if I've told everyone or not! I am now on Instagram, so if you have an account, and want someone else to follow, look me up! Search AMKrogsgaard. You'll find me there!! It began as my personal account, though I never posted anything publicly, and then after I was inspired by another WAHM, I changed the settings, and it became my personal/business account! Drop by, share some love, and say hi! I love visitors!
I don't have much to share today, contrary to what I was hoping. You know, that darn America's Got Talent. Kyle turned it on as soon as the kids were in bed, and I just wasn't able to get off the couch! I was glued to that tv screen like tape sticks to paper! I do, however, have a couple cards to share with you. I stole a few minutes this afternoon, to make another sample card for the batch my mom ordered, and I whipped up a card quickly last night, for an order that came in while I was away over the weekend. If I can get my act together tomorrow, I'll set aside more time for playing. Today was devoted to catching up- meaning getting the mountains of dirty laundry washed, and ready to go for the next camping trip, which is happening on the 15th of this month. Just a little forewarning! But, I'll remind y'all again when we plan to be away. Keep those orders coming in, and keep spreading the word that there's a girl here who would love to create things for the community at large!
The first card, a baby shower card, was made for another WAHM that I've recently 'met'. I'm honored she thought of me, and I'm honored that she'd rather have something hand made than something store bought. She requested that the card be in pink and greens, with flowers and/or butterflies. She had made something for the lucky baby in pinks and greens as well. Here is what I came up with:
I used Recollections' Primary Pin Dot (polka dot) patterned paper, as well as pink and white card stock (also Recollections), and layered them like crazy. The top rectangle I punched only two corners with the corner rounder- kitty corner to each other- for a little more drama. I spritzed the oval Martha Stewart Tag with Sour Apple Pearl Mist, and popped a butterfly on top (which is also pink). I don't know anymore where the butterflies came from. Probably K&Co. Lastly, the ribbon is miscellaneous. For a bit more emphasis, I added pop dots to the top pink panel, just to raise it up a bit more.
Tomorrow is once again Win it Wednesday! And, since we just celebrated a long weekend, and some people took advantage of it by getting away for a couple of days, I'd like to know:
What is your dream vacation?
