Time Shifter

New job or not...I have GOT to figure out how to schedule BUBBLE TIME! Jeepers Creepers! There just aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done - including making a card! But the Sunday laundry ritual I actually managed to focus long enough to be able to say, "tadah"!

Since it was laundry time I thought it was only fitting that I use the bleach technique. I've used this technique before and really enjoy it! And since Spring is nearly 'springing' I went with flowers. Yes - it was frigidly cold last week (and Friday we had snow flurries) - but hope and buds spring eternal!

Here's to creating a time budget, sticking to my time budget, and always being open to transferring time from the 'cleaning and organizing' column to the Bubble column! How is that for creative bookkeeping!?

Thanks for popping by,

  1. Absolutely gorgeous Nancy. Beautiful colours and stamp. Great technique - one I haven't done for a while. So glad you squeezed some time to share your card for our challenge this week at Just Us Girls. Love it!

  2. Such a good idea to sandwich laundry with card making - must make a dull activity speed by! Thanks for sharing at AAA Cards.

  3. Your "tadah" card is sensational and so beautiful Nancy! Love it. Sounds like you're really staying busy with work but that's ok as long as you like the job.
    I haven't been around much lately due to hubby being ill. Will be back in the swing of things soon.

  4. Your card is stunning. I love the technique you used, and you have colored the flowers so beautifully. Thank you for joining our 'Spring is in the Air' challenge at Creative Knockouts.
