Let's Color Linky Party 8

Happy weekend and welcome to another Let's Color Linky party :-)

The last two weeks went by so fast, I almost didn't get something done for today. I really admire all of you that get to create something every day,  or every other day, please tell me your tips on how you manage to get time for card making every single day! I am even a full time stay at home mom and it seems like I spend most of my mornings doing chores around the house and by the time I am done it's about time for the kids to come home from school. So I am seriously looking for tips on how to manage my time better!!



Thank you all that played along in the last Let's Color Linky Party. It was lots of fun visiting you all! Be sure to scroll down to see if your entry was one of the top choices!

 As usual, the theme here is
Anything Goes with Something Colored


And here is what I made using a cute stamp from Whimsy's Lee Holland collection

I used copic markers on xpress it blending card for coloring and I fussy cut the image to fit the design.
The sketch is from this week's MFT sketch challenge (sketch 277). I used designer papers from my stash (I am pretty sure they are all by SU but retired.) Sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps set Everyday Moments. 
A stencil was used to add a subtle dotted design on the white card front. I finished off the card by adding a button and some twine.

This card is listed in my Etsy shop if you're interested.

from Deborah's Shining Cards

That bunny card is just the cutest! Love the creative layout. I do not have any tips for you. I'm in the same boat. I'm a full time homemaker too and never can find time to make cards anymore. However, it is spring and garden chores always take over, plus I have a lot of sewing projects I'm working on.

Your card is so cute! I love the sweet bunny and your creative design with pretty papers. I've been retired 8 months and as much as I love to stamp and color I cannot manage enough time in my stamp room to make a whole card every day. There's the garden, the dogs, friends, family, housework, errands, and more. Then I'm too wiped out to be creative. Maybe I'll give myself time today. Love your challenges!
