Glitter- Anything Goes

Simon Says- Anything Goes

So I have been absent from the card making world for the month of April due to the great A to Z challenge but now I need a rest and what better way that making a card with Zen in mind. I need some Zen to the power of ten! Can I say I hate exacto knives! All the fussy cutting  but it works. OK now before I go off and veg for the night I thought this needed to be up and running:) I shall write about my survival of the A to Z in a couple of days:)

  2. That's beautiful. I can't have an exacto knife. No sharp objects for me.

  16. Cool card and very impressive cutting, Birgit. It has me wanting to find the Husband's exacto knife and cut something out to approach zen. It would've been better than drinking a strong cup of black coffee and thinking unnecessary thoughts.

  29. Looks beautiful! I don't make cards, but I love to draw. I find it so relaxing and I imagine that making cards would feel the same way. Glad you are getting to decompress. :)
