A Lovely (Mon)Day...

Are you a Monday person? For years, I was far from was always the hardest day of the week for me when I worked in a profession that required long hours in an office. Weekends were spent trying to unwind, but all too soon it was time to rewind for another week. It wasn't until I left that lifestyle after an illness and move that I realized I didn't really want to get back in that routine.  Mondays are different now...every week, it's like a little "restart" button...a whole new perspective on things.

And it was a more productive week in the Korner last week. But thanks to the wind/hail/rain weather routine we had going on, I had to wait until the weekend for enough light for photos.

So even though it was hard to tell by the rain and hail outside, spring was in the air while this first card was under construction...

The layered flower started with a piece of cheesecloth, topped with a pink fabric rose from Frogfeathers on Etsy, a tea-stained Hug Snug bow,a pink felt flower made of small die-cut felt hearts, and a couple Prima flowers with a little touch of clear glitter...

Next up is a lacy little number using some new scalloped lace that I realized matched the scallop size for all my Spellbinders Edgeabilities...another accidental happy crafty discovery!

Ahhh....there are those Prima roses again...did I ever mention that I really like them? :)
