A Friend........

Hello and happy Friday friends!  Today I am coming to you with a tag that I have made just because. Do you ever have those days where you just don't feel motivated and not so creative? Well, I do and I wanted to create for a couple of days, but just was not feeling good and even after sitting in my room for over and hour nothing happened!  So I cleaned off my table and started new and got all of my pretty flowers out, grabbed some laces and just went for it and this is what came out


A Friend

Paper: PTI White, Bazzill pink textured card stock, DP DCWV   Primrose

Yep, that is what happened when I sat down. I must say I love how it came out, very shabby chic and flowers and lace to the max, just how I like it, LOL!

You know sometimes you just have to sit down and don't plan just let go and let creativity take over.

Well, this is it for me for today.  I hope you all will have a blessed and super creative weekend!
