Busy as a bee....and it's only going to get worse :-)

Good Morning!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Monday! Mine was okay for a Monday, just busy, busy, busy!! The Fall Semester starts next week, so our office has been hopping, with the worse starting next week. They started construction around our building this week as well, which has made parking a pain! LOL I am all about routine and just a tad I have been a bit out of sorts! LOL Oh well, I will live :-)
I actually have been working with all my new stuff...I have been working on a Great Girls Swaps! I am happy to say the worse is over! LOL I need to order some more ribbon and put them together and I am done! Yeah!!! Of course I went and signed up for another one for the new upcoming holiday mini... LOL!! Swaps can be sooo addicting!! I LOVE them, and I just LOVE swapping with the Great Swap Girls! They are the best!!
Okay, for todays card....I actually did this one a couple of weeks ago. It was for one of the sketch challenges over on splitcoast! I always hestitate when triangles, diamonds, etc are involved. I am not sure why....but it was actually a fun easy card to put together!! TFL!!!

Good Evening everyone! Sorry I wasn't able to post until now. My day has not went anything like I hoped, but that is okay :-) It always helps when you have the new cattie to look at! I just love all the new checked, striped designer paper!! Don't you just love this gingham paper?? I am also in LOVE with Riding Hood Red! I still can't decide on Kiwi Kiss :-) I haven't even touched Tangerine Tango....I may try this one this evening, maybe with the Autumn Harvest set! I can't believe this set made it into the new cattie!!! This is one of my all time favorite sets :-)
