Delightfully Random!

After working as a temp for a week (well, three half days really) at Dr. John's office, I find myself lacking time and mojo to make anything. I searched for the go-to inspiration-Tuesday Trigger (see Delightfully Random) to give me a kick start...
There are so many elements from this delightful photo--stitching, buttons, flowers, lace, birdie, envelope, banners, spools of threads.....everything hand-made.

I used some of the elements from the photo inspiration and try not to overwhelm the design. I may have already...? I know I could make the colors a bit more turquoise, more blue/green, more floral..., oh well. I'm just happy to MAKE. A. CARD.
And speaking of random delight, here's what came my way in the mail a few days ago. It was from the win at Two Peas (my project Desk Top Calendar ). Take a peek at the goodies. The set of stamps are some Hero Arts Flourish stamps that I have never seen! I need to get inky!
So glad that I get to share my random delights with you. Hope you are enjoying the beautiful Fall days out there. I now need to get some fresh air :)
