I guess it was my turn to have one of those weeks...the kind that toss you around and shake up your world a bit. We all have them, huh? I am looking forward to a fresh new week here in a couple of days, but happy that we're all coming out of this one happy and well, minus a broken bone or two :). That little event was just icing on the cake, ha!
So today, is catch up day, catch my breath day, get ready for tomorrow day, get the laundry done day, fresh, sheets on the bed day, etc., etc., including post a card or two for you day :). The first was created for Freckled Fawn using elements from the new OHDEERME May Embellishment kit, this kit may just be my most favorite. Sweet little wood chip flowers or doilies, depending on how you look at them, chipboard frames, lovely resin flowers, and cute as can be washi...love this tape. And, there's more included, but I haven't used those bits and pieces on this card.
My sentiment comes from Papertrey Ink's Modern Wood Mats stamp set, and is a sentiment I just love.
Since it's been a mixed up sort of week, how about a Christmas card thrown at you right in the middle of May :)? This was created for Festive Friday and is one of my most favorite challenges yet...simple, red and white. You can see the challenge photo below.
There is still one more week to play along and get your card entered...I know you have a hefty stash of beloved holiday supplies left over from last Christmas. I sure do and I love digging through them all year long and using them up on the Festive Friday challenges.
I used Echo Park and Crate Paper chipboard, American Crafts glitter ribbon, Teresa Collins paper, and a few extras for good measure.
Hope you'll play along! So, off I go to tidy up the remains of the week, bake some cookies, because that always makes us happy around here, care for a broken husband, care for a cranky daughter with a sore throat, and hope for a good western to come on tonight :). Did you know I love westerns?
Must be the effect these critters have had on me. We're caring for Gramps' farm animals and meadow while he and Granny are in Peru, so bright and early we head to the pasture for a water turn and to get nuzzled and slobbered upon by the animals. They are so loving and lovable.
This mouthy dude, very talkative.
While my husband and I were turning the water down and fixing pipes, Sierra took a walk, and I found her on top of a haystack, looking across the valley, contemplating life as a 10 year old...was a sweet moment.
Hope the rest of your weekend is just as it should be, nice and relaxing.
