Back in the Swing

I'm trying to get back in the swing of things with my crafts. Being that I'm single & work full time and can't seem to convince anyone to do my housework for me so I'm having a hard time fitting everything in lately. That doesn't even include my spritiual activities. There are just not enough hours in the day.

I did get a quite bit this done this past week, well at least craft wise. Now I just need to take care of my house, my poor neglected house.

Stamps: MFT Meet Me at the Cafe; Ink: Palette Noir ; Paper: SU Spring Flowers, Cool Carribean; Embellishments: Metal Sheet (I stamped cafe on here from the MFT set then went over it with a stylus to make an impression. Went over it with Red Pepper Tim Holtz Alcohol ink with mixer. When that was set I then when over the impression with a thin Black Sharpie). Other: Prisma Pencils & OMS

Stamps: Rubber Romance Lulu, MFT Essential Sentiments; Ink: Palette Hybrid Noir, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo; Paper: SU Spring Flowers; Other: Brads, Word Window Punch, Prisma Pencils, OMS

Stamps: Out on a Limb; Ink: Palette Hybrid Noir, Radiant Pearls Green, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo; Paper: Pumpkin Pie, White, Bazzil Orange; Other: Brads, Eyelets, Ribbon, Liquid Pearls

Stamps: Autumn Leaves Rhonna Farrer - Nature, SU Love Ya Bunches; Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo, Palette Hybrid Prussian Blue; Paper: SU Spring Flowers, Cool Caribbean, White; Other: Purple eP, Purple Stickles, blue jewel, inkssentials glossy accents

All are great but really like the little bird on the last one. Is it the Stickles giving him his shine?

Know what you mean about there not being enough time!

Great cards, Sara!
I love the metal details you're using-especially for the bird. I just got this set and can't wait for the weekend to play with it.
Lovely work as always!
