*Fall To Layout #190*

Happy Saturday everyone....  it's been a great week weather-wise in Calgary.... nothing like last Saturday where it snowed and the flakes were the size of cotton balls!!  I can see my peonies poking through the ground... my stargazer lilies as well.  I love spring!

I really like the card I created using the sketch for this week at the Clean and Simple Stamping blog.  The colours are a little bright for me (Pumpkin Pie, Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade, Black and White) but I still like how it turned out.
I hope you'll be able to find some time to play along with us this week!  Check out the link on the left sidebar to see the sketch and to see what others have be inspired to do!

*Thinking of You*

I decided to have some fun playing with some buttons .... and came up with this.... I love how simple it is.

*Fall To Layout #189*

It would appear that my blog break wasn't as long as I feared it might be.... I was given some extra time at home today and after running a few errands, I decided to play a little.

The company I work for is renovating the floors in the building I am in, floor by floor (we have offices in five different buildings downtown), and the 10th floor, where my office is, is next.  So we spent a few days this week packing all of our personal items and all of the files for our project and the movers are moving us to the 9th floor tomorrow.  I was at work at 6:45 (my normal start time... I know, I'm nuts) and by 10am pretty much anyone who would have work to give to me was gone.  I had a little stuff in my inbox that I decided to get through before leaving so that I can spend time on Monday unpacking and getting settled.  I left the office at 11:15, got myself some new sandals (a great pair of Birkenstocks), went to Walmart, had lunch... and then came home and created.

And the best part?  I actually like the two cards I created!

For today, I have my take on the current sketch at the Clean and Simple Stamping blog.... I hope you'll find some time to play along with us....
This card is just bright and fun and spring-like....  the flower is a smaller version of the flowers I made a few weeks ago.

Have a great Friday evening!!!
