Tax Time....

Happy Hump Day Everyone!
As my title suggests, it's that time of year and I spent yesterday putting together my spreadsheet for our accountant. Here's a LATE resolution I've made for myself: I'm not going to wait 'til the last minute to do this anymore!!! I've already started on this year's sheet so I'm ahead of the game....and I'll be much happier this time next year too!!

Since I had no time to create anything new, I'm showing you one of my faves that I made last year. This card is for an Inspiration Challenge on SCS and I used the colors from the photo as my mojo starter. I never thought that Sahara Sand & Soft Sky would look this great together but it really does! I had to ink up my cuttlebugged piece to take away some of the starkness and found out that I LOVE to distress the embossed pieces....kind of messy but cute!!

I hope you enjoyed this little trip down memory lane. I'm off to get the kiddos going, work out, freshen up and head over to our accountant's office. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!!
TTFN,
Hugs,
