♥ MME pinspiration ♥

good morning, happy weekend!  i LOVE weekends and do not take them for granted any longer.  it's a time for me to get caught up from the week of family, work, school and dt work and it's beautiful.

i wanted to pop in and share a card created for the MME Pinspiration 
post this week on the blog.  I have shared with you HOW MUCH i love these posts.  there is so, so much inspiration in our My Mind's Eye Inspiring Pages and Cards board.  i love to peruse the gallery of gorgeous projects and every single time, find it so hard to pick just one project.

this card by Lucy Abrams 

  isn't it just gorgeous?  love every last bit of it, from blocking to focal to stitching to sentiment placement, just gorgeous!  you can check out more from her amazing blog here too Lucy's Cards

and here is the card, completely inspired by her gorgeous creation

 her gorgeous card, with the blocking and centered focal gave me a springboard to mix soft colors and center a layered flower embellishment

thank you Lucy for the inspiration 

pop in to the My Mind's Eye blog to see more Pinspiration and creations

i hope to pop in a couple more times this weekend before the start of another week, thank you for visiting me
happy creating♥

♥ so much news and some scrappy shares ♥

good morning.  happy labor day weekend to those of you in the U.S.  we have been busy catching up around the house here, working "ahead" because our schedule is a wee bit busier right now. 


 i am taking college courses for work this year in addition to work, hubby's work schedule and home life with four kids.  so i will be taking a break from a couple of design teams this semester, (Jillibean Soup, The Scrap Review and CupCards card kits(CupCards after the first of the year)) these are teams whose contract has come up and i was able to share with my amazing dt coordinators and owners my situation for this semester.   (CupCards will still have two more kits this year, Fall Thank You and Christmas, that i will be creating with before taking a break for my classes.)

 so, while i won't be making deadlines this semester for these amazing teams, that does not for one second change my LOVE of the products, it is a timing thing for me while i finish these courses and give them the spot for someone a little less busy this semester.  it IS a business and i would feel horrible if i couldn't put my full effort in while there are others out there who love their products as much as i do.

i will NOT be giving up my other teams this semester, and have been working ahead with the manufacturing teams.  so, what that means is, i will still be sharing projects, cards, layouts and tutorials here on the blog, i have just haven't renewed all my contracts for the upcoming year.

i want to thank Jill, Ashley and Sonda with ALL of my heart for the opportunity to create with AMAZING products and for AMAZING teams.  thank you ALL for your understanding about school this semester, as ALWAYS, you showed me such respect, care and understanding as a designer and in understanding to my situation this semester.  i can NOT share enough how classy and amazing these ladies are to work for/with.


October Afternoon and Webster's Pages 
have partnered, you can see the announcement and video explaining everything in the links above, i'm SO excited and think you will be too!
