Nothin' to Do

That's not exactly true. Actually, I have a lot to do but nothing that requires much of a schedule, which, after a hectic week, is enough to have me practically jumping for joy.

I made this card last night after the little boys finally settled down from one very enjoyable party. The stamp I used was from the new Intrinsic Backgrounds set. The butterflies were punched from scraps from the Perfect Day paper packet.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White and Juniper cardstock; Colonial White pigment ink pad; Juniper ink pad; CTMH Intrinsic Backgrounds and Papertrey Ink Mixed Messages stamp sets; Ribbon from Wal-Mart; Sparkles; McGill tag punch; Sponge dauber.

This has been quite a week, with challenges on the home front and at work and deepfreeze weather to boot. All together, it was a bit overwhelming, which is why I'm so looking forward to a quiet weekend. I hope you're anticipating a pleasant weekend, too. If you're looking around the blogosphere, stop back. My plan is to stamp and then stamp some more, so most likely, I'll have lots to share. In the interim, take care!

This sure is a pretty card, Kathi! I love the serene color palette. That new stamp is reminiscent of some SU stamps I've seen. Looks great!

I'm glad the boys had fun and that your workweek is done so you can enjoy some much deserved stamp time! I'll look forward to whatever you have to share. Ü

Love this Kathi! I just got that stamp set yesterday and it is screaming for me to make something with it. Your card is perfect. In fact, I just may have to "case" it. LOL! *Ü*
