Be the Star ....

..that you are!!! Luv that!!

My vacation is winding down and Iam okay with that, three weeks is a long time, enough time. I am ready to get back in the groove of things, not so much of waking up at 5:30 BUT just something more routine. Does that sound crazy and weird? I mean how much time can you spend in the mall, or hanging out in your jammies, or the movies, I mean some of this requires spending money.

I have been on a black & white kick, like the girly look of it.

Check out this 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 CUTIE!! The OCC challenge was to create a simple & clean card . Nothings cleaner than white on white, how about that ribbon. I am a hounds tooth fan and found this in the dollar bin @ Michaels. This is my first time using it and I found that theres only 4ft of ribbon on the spool, that will never be enough. I must rush to Michaels and find more because there clearancing out the dollar bin AARRGGHH.

On this card I used my all time favorite ribbon, been using it for years. Iam also a gingham fan. I really like the layered border punch look.

I need to get busy and pick my word for this year, last years word was Dedicated. I dont think I faired very well on that I set out to be dedicated to. Check this out it,its a very cool idea. A word a day by Ali Edwards.

Okay thats all for today, I do have some other really cool pics to share with you.

I love both of your cards! They're very fun and fresh! Yes, both ribbons are great - it's the black/white thing, I guess!

You made me think about a "word" for the year. Hmmm. That's intriguing! I'll let you know if I can settle on one.

I love the black & white. The multiple punch border is great. Never would have thought of it, but I will be doing it now!!! I know what you mean about being off work. I had a two week break over Christmas and kind of went stir crazy.
