The craziness is upon me...

I'm there. That panicked part of getting ready for a big trip. I'm going to forget something, probably something important. I have lists, and more lists. I'll probably have to make at least 2 more lists. In the midst of my scattered thoughts, I wanted to come & share a few cards, link up one last time to Simon Says Stamp (Anything Goes), and freak out a little!

I will be online sparingly in the next few weeks - all my DT posts are drafted, but not ready to go quite yet...that's on a list. I feel so very attached to visiting with all of you that I know I'm going to miss you - but I also know catching up will be beyond me. I can't wait to see what you've been up to when I come back!

So, before I start supper, here's a few cards:
Supplies: sentiments from Paper Smooches;
flowers from Stampin' Up!;
Palette Noir ink;
Spun Sugar & Tumbled Glass distress ink;
pink & blue rhinestones

Supplies: papers from Kaisercraft;
stamps from Paper Smooches (from Barb!);
Antique Linen, Barn Door, Vintage Photo distress inks;
Palette Noir ink;
GOOGLY EYES!
Just for fun cards? Paper Smooches to the rescue :) 
Love you guys - I'm gonna miss you!
xoxo,
Jessi

Make sure you have FUN, Jessi! It's a holiday! ;)
First card: so very pretty. Must dust off that SU set. Second card: totally fun! Coffee sleeves should all have googly eyes.

Jessi - you're too funny. I was so much like you, and every business trip started stressing me out, until i figured out that all you need is your passport (if you're travelling internationally) and a credit card. Everything else is ok - you can always buy whatever you forget!
