Raspberry Suite Challenge

So far, so good. We seem to be settling into a routine. Kind of. ;) I'm in hyper -organized mode and everything that needs to be done has been getting done. I can't say I love being a working mom, yet, but it's not too bad. It definitely makes my time home with the little guy that much more precious.
In between running myself around this week, I managed to make a couple of cards!
this first one is for Dawn's challenge. The colors are really 'fallish', so I pulled out my new PTI Fall Elegance set and made this little card. The vine is from Beyond Basic Borders.






I added some Zva crystals to it. Love the little touch of bling they bring.

I also decided to pull out my Heartprints set again this week. I love this set!!! When I went to Dawn's blog to pull up the color challenge photo, I noticed she used the same set on a card. And they are quite similar! Great minds must think a like. Here's a fun little Valentine.



The circle of gems is Zva, too! And the die cut paper is from Making Memories.
Well, that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
