Sending Love

It's about time I posted with a card don't you think... I mean, this blog is called Lucy's Cards, not Lucy's baby / house / sketches. :)
So... given my pretty busy daily routine of nursing / changing / bathing (which takes up an AMAZING amount of time), I have not been able to spend much time in my studio.  So instead, I ran up, grabbed a few supplies, and set up in the living room.  What a great idea - limited supplies really made me think hard! I ended up with kraft card, 2 paper pads, some new Hero Arts stamps, a pack of Lily Bee Journaling Cards, and random ribbon and twine.  No sewing machine... no Cuttlebug... no printer... just a pen and some ink.  LOVED the challenge.
I made a few cards.  Here is the first.  I used lovely papers from Basic Grey's Picadilly line, some cute journaling cards and some Hero Arts stamps - Sending You LoveMy Happy and Frames and Flowers

Back soon with the next of my "limited supplies" cards. :)
P.S.  My little Lily smiled for the first time today.  Very happy!!!!

Lovely card Lucy - just shows what you can do with just a few bits and pieces! Great to hear about Lily's first smile too - now you wouldn't have wanted to miss that would you.
