So happy to blog again...

Handmade cards with love:
Hello lovely bloggers,

Hope you are well and having a decent weekend... 
I have been a bit slow with blogging as I have been a bit caught up with life.
On the positive side, I managed to pull myself out of my hectic schedule to go for a spiritual retreat and it was one of the best things that happened to me. I felt as though I was on cloud nine! Wish I could stay in that mode forever... try I will for sure.

Now to my card - the flowers and butterflies are from Petaloo (bought at the scrap booking store) while the paper is from my fave book store. 
All the different circles you see were actually used for another card but I made a card with the left over cardstock.  I stuck  pink card inside and stuck the flower, butterfly and paper on it. Added some pearls on the paper to make it look more interesting. Looks quite elegant, don't you think?


Will come and visit you soon... 

Thanks for all the blog love, what would I do without it, I wonder?

Hugs,
Monica xxx

Monica, you are amazing! To turn 'leftover' card stock into this?!?! Beautiful! And very inspiring to me to look at my scraps in a new way!
Hope you are continuing to improve!

I haven't been on a spiritual retreat in several years, but I can still remember the feelings of peace, stillness, beauty....it was all so wonderful. I'm glad you had the experience, every one should. Hugs!

The retreat sounded like heaven! I imagine it did a world of good, and it's nice to take a break and just focus on what is really important :) Stunning card and I love the flower peeking in through the windows!
