Good evening! Where has the day gone? I'm counting hours left until school starts back up. Approximately 15 hours until the kiddos come walking through my door. Weird. I restrained myself and didn't go work in my classroom today. I deserve one day off, right? However, I did break down and work on some computer things this morning before church. And I ran a few quick errands for work after church. But I'm home now. And I refuse to work on anything more! (until I can think of something that I just have to work on, lol.)
Can I just say that I love Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch for this week? I got a sneak peak of it last night, and the wheels started turning in my head. I've had these beautiful blooms dies from PTI that have been sitting since I purchased them a month or two back. This was the perfect sketch with which to initiate them! Then I was cruising through some of my favorite blogs, when I ended up on my friend Marisa's blog. The new Curtain Call Challenge was issued, and the colors were heavenly! Blues and greens and kraft, oh my! I just had to work with it. Now, I don't have the new Stampin' Up colors yet, so I did substitute in some similar (I hope!) colors. I used PTI's Enchanted Evening and Spring Moss. Some ric rac, half pearls, scallops, buttons, and circles later... Tahdah! My first card in a week! Ah, I love stamping. Oh!! I also played around with some new Verve-y goodness. Isn't that sentiment sweet?! LOVE the font and the gorgeous flowers in this set (which I didn't use...*gasp!*...yet.)
The joy of stamping every day is coming to an end once again. Now that it's back to reality, there will probably be only a couple posts each week rather than a post each day. Don't expect to see a ton of me this first week back, lol. I may be sleeping the moment I get home!!! I'm always wide awake and full of adrenaline the first day, but usually crash hard by day 3. I already can't wait to sleep in on Saturday! :)
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful week and wish me luck! And happy first day of school to many of you out there!
