Toadily Glad It's Friday!

This card makes me laugh. As soon as I saw the leaping toad (that looks more like a frog to me), I thought of this "What's Up?" sentiment. As for the layout, it's my take on this week's Mojo Monday sketch. All the layering was easy with these coordinating Basic Grey papers.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy and Cocoa cardstock; Basic Grey Sultry 6x6-inch paper pad; Black and Cocoa stamp pads; Penny Black Toadily and Impression Obsession Anytime Sentiments stamp sets; Acrylic disks from Michael's; Just Blooms paper flower; Stampin' Up Build-A-Brad; EK Success corner rounder (scallops).

Having put in a little extra time earlier in the week, I was off work early today. I came home with intentions of taking care of some housekeeping chores only to discover when I walked through the door they were already done thanks to my sweet husband. I really appreciate starting the weekend with some of the mundane stuff already taken care of. I learned after work that Bjorn and Mathias are coming to spend the night and will, I'm sure, spend at least part of the day with us tomorrow. I plan to do a little stamping, too. I've noted some fun-looking sketch challenges, and I'm definitely in the mood for this week's Stamp Simply challenge. On that note, you can count on seeing more of me during the next couple of days. Enjoy the weekend! Later ...

Love that Toadily stamp set. Tomorrow I am going to call Ben Franklin and have them order it for me. I also posted a frog card. Must be the cold weather.

Adorable! Love your coloring and the colors in the designer paper.

Yea for you that you don't have to do some mundane chores and are somewhat free to create.

I was so tired last night after our busy day yesterday. The girls played their hearts out and hopefully later I can post a little something about what we did last night....
