Sliding off my satin sheets !! ;)

There's a thing about country music ..carefree, an air devoid of moisture but indefinable profundity..
The more I explore my Mac the more I fall in love with it..
Just a glimpse .. 

I remember daddy's hands how they held my mama tight
And patted my back for something done right
There are things that I'd forgotten that I loved about the man
But I'll always remember the love in daddy's hands
(Holly Dunn)

Anyhow, all those who don't use Mac but have Itunes and a great internet package with good speed's a tip for you if you love music as much as anyone can love ..why don't you explore the radio on the list of library? You will find over 5000 streams with unlimited categories of music. 

That apart ..I have been crafting ..rather consistently, to my surprise for sure !
The Beyond Grey Inspiration card is just one of the many things..happening in life. 
Even though it's a small black took a lot of patience and irritated sessions of paper wastage..
I could sulk about it and rejoice as well ..for its numerous elements.
I like the upcycled itsy bitsy blooms..the overall look but you have to know that I went through a depressing hour ..and what was left with me as the card base was just 1/3 of the original black cardstock..with every mistake I trimmed off an inch :P
Therefore its measures barely 3" by 6" ( nothing is ever a standard for me !!)
The background basket weave of papers was also trimmed just like that to fit the card ..but it was fun and it looks just fine to me..
I dont even wish to mention the centre tag/medallion/diecut with the sentiment ! :S
The lace and the flowers turned out well enough.

Lets focus on the positive aspects :P
The blooming blooms that were made using the basic die cut flowers from Itsy Bitsy remain the only thing bearable on this card..
The blingy flourish and the green punch pattern go fairly well with the card.
