Stamp Simply ... or ...

Not at all! It seems like the Stamp Simply challenge on the No Time to Stamp? blog is the first one I catch every Friday. As you well know, stamping simply is no challenge for me. It's all I know! LOL. Usually, whatever I'm doing doesn't match up with the theme. This week, however, I finally got it together.

Before Christmas, I was inspired by this card on Lisa's blog, and this my the Valentine's Day version. The Cuttlebug die and embossing folder came with my Cuttlebug. The only thing I did that you can't see was mount the embossed piece to the card with foam mounting tape.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Tulip, and Black cardstock; Black/white gingham ribbon; Cuttlebug w/Postage Stamp die and folder and Swiss Dots folder.

I had more ambitious plans for this evening but had to clean up my corner first (so I could get into it). While I was straightening up, a couple of shelves on the bookcase that holds my paper kind of collapsed, which created a mess on top of the mess I already had. My quick repair job was, at best, temporary. My corner needs to be revamped, because as it is, an "Enter at Your Own Risk" sign would be appropriate. The way things are stacked up an avalanche could occur at any moment.

I have no specific plans for the weekend, just lots of stuff I want to do and a bunch of stuff I should do. We'll see how that plays out. Right now, I need to make a trip to the grocery store. I'm out of coffee, which is OK for now but won't be come morning. Thanks for taking the time to stop by to see what I've been up to! I hope yours is a great weekend - whatever you want it to be!
