Hi, There!

I had a quiet moment this morning before my grandchildren clamored downstairs to make breakfast and get ready for work.  My quiet moments here can be few and far between but I would not change a thing about my busy household!!  So onto my "quiet moment" post.

This background I created with the new Distress Oxide Inks and sprayed with water once I liked the shading.  You get these awesome variations in the shading once it is dry!!  I only have a few of these inks but having fun with the few I have!  I used painters tape for masking a frame and the sentiment is from Verve.  Added some sequins and those awesome stickers - now I think those are from a Tim Coffey collection but not sure.

I hope to get back into my craft room today to create a few more "quick" cards from all my sticker stash!!!  

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful weekend, with a quiet moment to yourself to do what ever pleases you the most!!!  Special wishes to all the wonderful Mothers out there that are celebrating Mothers Day here in the USA and a belated Happy Mothers Day to all our UK mums!!!  Hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn
