Under Your Spell

Good morning! :) I'm feeling a little guilty here because we all over slept and missed church today. I even slept through almost an hour of my alarm going off -- so I KNOW I was tired! WOW! I'm glad I wasn't suppose to be at work today. LOL! But... it does feel good to just have a day with the family where we're not rushing around, going from here to there & back again. Daylight savings time is NOT my friend.

So... since I have all of this extra time on my hands, I thought I'd show you a card I made the other day. ;)

I just LOVE this paper from Sassafras. It's so funky and fun. I was trying to capture (on paper) the feelings you have when you're crazy in love.... and those whirling emotions that come with it.

My crochet flower actually coordinates perfectly with the paper... but for some reason, the camera makes it a little off. :) The sentiment is much cooler in real life too b/c it's adhered in a wave-like pattern where parts of it are higher than another. You'll just have to take my word for it. ;)

Hope your Sunday is full of great family time & rest. And for those of you who actually made it to church today... I hope it lifted your spirit. :) Have a good one!!!
