Hello Friend

     Have you ever felt like life has run you over.  LOL  I'll be 51 in June and I thought things would start slowing down.  HA!!  I think they've ramped up to triple times busy...at least!
     I managed to find some time back a few weeks ago to create another one of the adorable Mini Try-fold cards from Art Impressions.  This one is called Hello Friend.  You can find it at online stores like Simon Says Stamp and Ellen Hutson.
     I used my Prismas to color.  Here are photos of each layer.  The card was closed with one of AI's cool Butterfly Clasp Keepers dies also available at the above stores.

     These Try-fold sets make the sweetest little cards.
     Have a blessed day!

Stamps--Art Impressions "Hello Friend"
Ink--Memento Tuxedo Black, Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol
Tools--accompanying dies

You're not the only one who needs a few more hours in the day - I never seem to be able to fit everything in either :/
A great selection of cards here since I visited last, today's window card is beautiful with it's butterfly belly band.

Awww...it's so beautiful, Tracy! I love the little birdies nestled in the flowers!
It's a wonderful design, and such a pretty butterfly clasp! We're not in our golden years yet, my friend! I think that's when the slow-down happens! :o)

Isn't it scary to realize that it's almost mid-May? I don't know where the time is going, but it's going too fast. Love your sweet card. Hope all is well with you. Hugs, Geri

Such a sweet card! Love the tri-fold and the beautiful band. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I'm 70 and life hasn't slowed down yet. We just change activities. Hope you have time to put up your feet and have a cup of tea. Hugs!

an early Happy Birthday wish for you! Love your card and I have to tell you I will be 71 this October and with God's blessings I can be like that energizer bunny and keep cranking out those cards and art journal pages!!!! Big Hugs and stay well with a smile always in your heart.
