I finally had the chance to sit down and stamp intentionally again. And even though there were a hundred or so other things I probably should have been doing, it felt good.
This first card was made using Close To My Heart’s June Stamp of the Month set, “Wonderful Friend.”
Materials & Tools: Colonial White and Cocoa Cardstock; Passages Level 2 paper packet; Cocoa and Bamboo ink pads; Wonderful Friend June Stamp of the Month set; Antiqued Copper Mini Brads; Sponge Dauber; Distressor tool; Sanding Block; 3M foam mounting tape.
This next card was also made using the Passages paper packet as well as CTMH’s new “Live Inspired” stamp set. There are so many lovely images in this set. Love it!

There isn’t a whole lot going on here yet today. My intention was to go to church with Mom and my sister at 10. I woke up at 9:56. It turns out they didn’t go either. The sky is a bit brighter today, which is a good sign. The 10-day forecast currently shows six sunny or mostly sunny days with temperatures, for the most part, in the 70s. Undeterred by the clouds, Marv went to play a round of golf. I’m headed over to Mom’s. A couple of my sisters (the Marthas) are there along with my brother-in-law. They’re hanging pictures and anchoring furniture. I’ll go watch ‘em. LOL. Seriously, these girls (21 months and not quite three years younger than me) are so talented. If the truth be known, I’m just jealous.
What are you up to today? Whatever it is, I hope you are enjoying yourselves. That’s what weekends are for, after all. If the housekeeping fairy shows up and takes care of my chores, I might be back yet today. Otherwise, I’ll catch you tomorrow. In the meantime, take care!
