Simple Saturday

A simple card for Simple Saturday made by a happy, albeit tired, stamper. I used much-favored-by-me White Daisy textured Heartlines_3_Jan 2011cardstock. The lines and bows were hand drawn (with the help of a straightedge!). I colored the hearts with markers and added details with a white gel pen. The hearts remind me of bandana prints.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy textured and black cardstock; Black ink pad; Black My Legacy Writer; Holiday Red Marker; White gel pen; Impression Obsession Heartlines stamp set.

A Slice of Life: Among the many things I have learned is week is that fact that one does not say, “See you tomorrow,” at the end of one’s workday. In my case, the correct thing to say is, “See you tonight,” unless, of course, it is 7 am on Saturday morning. Then you say, “See you Wednesday night.” Yippee! I am as free as a bird until Wednesday evening! The job is great. The people are great. With lots to do, the long hours don’t seem long at all. Life is good.

I am, however, a bit tired today but expect a good night’s sleep to remedy that. What am I going to do with all my free time? I am going to pick up where I left off in my kitchen and then move to the bedroom for an overhaul there as well. The “big” project is going to be my den where my computer and Kathi’s Corner are located. Major improvements are planned. It’s last on the agenda, however, for a several reasons. The biggest one is the reward factor. If I were to do my space first and finally have everything the way I want it, I probably wouldn’t be willing to leave it long enough to get to the rest of the house. LOL.

Do you have plans for the weekend? It’s cold in the frozen tundra – currently -11° on its way to a forecast -17° – a good night to stay home and take it easy. I’ll close with the wish that yours is a wonderful weekend. Take care, my friends, and thank you for stopping by.

Good luck with your bedroom and den.

Your hearts are so happy! Much like YOUR heart is, I believe with all the good that has come your way in the new job and the new baby in your life. Wonderful. I like the bandanna look, too.

I think you have the right idea when it comes to your cleanup/out. I have a feeling I know how good you are feeling about getting these projects done, too!

Have a fabulous weekend, dear friend!
