Not Quite 10-Minute Tuesday

Say it in Style_2_December 2010

Yes, I know it is Thursday, and yes, that is an indication of how the week is going.

You can tell I’m a simple gal when I say I like this card as much as any I have made so far this season. And you’ve seen the layout before – it’s my Pretty-Paper-too-Pretty-to-Cover-Up-Sketch or PPTPTCU Sketch if you are into acronyms. Ugh.

Materials & Tools: Stampin’ Up Crumb Cake cardstock; Basic Grey Jovial 6x6-inch paper pad; Olive ink pad; Red satin ribbon from Wal-Mart.

A Slice of Life: This has been another whirlwind week. Busy at work. Busy at home. My engine is all revved up, but my wheels are not moving forward, which is a bit disheartening at this time of year. No panic … yet … but soon.

The highlight of my week has been spending a little (but not enough) time with the little guys. They spent the night last night, so I had a half hour with them after bowling and before bedtime. We had breakfast together this morning. They’re so darned sweet.

I think Sarah is coming over tonight to finish her recipe box project that we started Tuesday evening. Guiding her through a project is easy and fun – she’s a natural.

I best go get a few things done before she gets here. I hope you are having a great week and that I have enough time to make a little tour around the blogosphere tonight. I’ll talk to you again soon. Thanks for stopping!

Such a gorgeous card! I just love the Jovial paper!

Gorgeous, Kathi! Makes me think of the Willie Nelson song, Pretty Paper. {even if the colors aren't the same *Ü*}

This card is very pretty - so I agree with your assessment - to add anything more to it would be a shame.

It sounds like the week has been good - at least the highlights were good *giggle*

Happy Friday dear friend!

This is gorgeous Kathi. That paper is too pretty to cover up. And I love the big red bow.
