Hey, did I tell you it's FRIDAY!??! I love Friday. I don't work on Friday. The kids are off early on Friday. I have no responsibilities for places to be on Friday nights. I love Friday.
This Friday I love more than most. As a wife and Mom, I find that I don't get much of a chance to have time to myself. I enjoy driving places on my own cuz I have time to myself. Sad, eh?
But this Friday holds the promise of time to myself....
Matthew is off to Cub Camp for the weekend. He's so excited. He loves Cub Camp.
Bruce is taking Alex to the mountains for the weekend go skiing. Skiing is a new passion for Bruce and Alex, something Matthew is too chicken to try and I have tried in the past and have no interest in doing again.
And that leaves me here, at home, for an entire weekend.... with no one around, with nothing I have to do. Ahhhhh, bliss!
So, on to the card....
I got inspiration for this card from a scrap of patterned paper I had in my stash. I think it's Basic Grey but don't quote me on that. I decided that Buckaroo Blue, Cranberry and Crisp and True Thyme were pretty good matches. I used my Marvy Giga Oval Scallop Punch on the paper and my Fiskars Shape Cutter for the Buckaroo Blue circle. I stamped "imagine" in black ink on a piece of the patterned paper and then cut it out with my small oval punch. I then punched two more ovals out of Buckaroo Blue cardstock and staggered them behind the patterned oval to create a frame. I punched slots into the circle and threaded some ribbon through the slots. I added three Primas with brads and voila.
So, the question is... does the card need something more? Should I have stamped a background on the True Thyme?
There will be another card posted in the near future asking for advice.... this was the least "needy" of the two LOL!
