*Flashback Friday*

Could someone please explain to me.... why is it that when you have a Friday where you can sleep in, that you wake up without an alarm only a half hour or so after your alarm would have woken you anyway?

Matthew has the day off from school day... PD Day for the staff (Professional Development). Alex had school, but since Bruce had to get up to go to work anyway, he was good to let me sleep and was there to make sure Alex got off ok. I woke up with Bruce's alarm but was able to fall right back to sleep. And then, POW, 7:30... I am wide awake! Matthew is still asleep, and I am wide awake.

How is this fair?

The only good thing about it is that I didn't wake up to my alarm. I hate waking up to the alarm.

My plan for today was to get up, get cleaned up and dressed, check my email and then head down to craft, taking a break only to make Matthew lunch. But instead, I have done the first part... and then I've been sitting at the computer for far too long, ended up on the phone for a half hour with my girlfriend, started my second load of laundry and will be leaving in a bit to go to the mall to help my girlfriend find a sports bra and get Matthew a pair of jeans.

But, I will come home this afternoon and craft. I think. I hope!

It's Friday, so that means a card from my past... and thankfully (for me), I get to show you a card I actually like!

This card is from the 2004 folder on my hard drive. I stamped the image on white cardstock with black ink and then used my Radiant Pearls (which I was so addicted to) to highlight the flower.

The "missing you" was printed on my laser printer on to vellum and I tore it and attached it to the card with some square brads.

Quite a simple card really, but one I still like.

Enjoy your Friday all (and please send me some crafting vibes so that I can have more to share with you soon!)

Don't you just hate that (waking up early that you're supposed too). I wish i have those days, so i can just stay on my 'lil space and craft =).

Love this card.

Tracy.H said... too! Day off school, yet we were still up at 7:00AM!! Why??

This is a great card....even if it is simple! I never made such nice cards when I started a few years ago....I think they hit the trash a long time ago!

Great job! I love how you added the vellum sentiment!
