Whoever decided...

That the work week should be 5 days long and the weekend only 2 days long was seriously dillusional! I could use 3 more days of weekend, how about you? It just went WAY to fast! So here I am *at work* waiting for the Monday meeting to start *gag*. The boss would be happy to see how I pass the time;)



I did this card last night for Beate's weekend sketch challenge! It was such a fun sketch, and can you tell I'm totally love 4.25x4.25 cards??? The square shape is so fun! And these colors are so awesome together, I think they're the colors I'm going to use for my Christmas cards this year! Chocolate, Purely Pomegranate, and Wild Wasabi! Mmmmm:) I stamped the Purely Pom base with the argyle stamp from Looks Like Spring and the chocolate piece with Aida Cloth. I stamped the main image with my Heartfelt Thanks stamp set! I used my awesome corner punch for the corners you see up top and added some blingage:) And, can you see it? That yummy Chocolate satin ribbon? Oy, it's fabby.

Okay, meeting time...have a *cough* fantastic *cough* Monday:)

Amber, your card is gorgeous! What's not to like about a square card with chocolate chip color?
Thanks so much for trying out the sketch!
I like having only two day weekends. But that's because I am a stay at home Mom. The weekdays are like weekends for me, having the mornings all to myself.
Hugs and grins

hope Monday wasn't too bad, at least there's a long weekend coming really soon. Got my goodies yesterday, THANK YOU SO MUCH. I still haven't had the time to go through it all properly, I'm planning on doing that today. It's like Christmas. And the "container" - just the thing I need to make my space look "girly". Thanks again.
Loving all your cards, fab stuff.
