"enjoy today"

Sorry about my late post today.  We didn't get home last night until after 12:30 a.m. and I didn't even think about doing this post:(  But, I promised a new card for today, so here it is!


This is a digi image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Milton's Good Book.  You can find it here. This is the image I chose when I was "In the Spotlight" for Sweet 'n Sassy last month and I finally got a chance to use it.  I colored it with Copics and cut around it.  The matting papers are from Papertrey and I used my Swiss Dots folder on the green.  The background paper is from Die Cuts With a View.  The sentiment is from Verve and was a gift with an order. It's mounted on Dimensionals, as is the image.  The ribbon is from Papertrey, also.


I had a great day yesterday with my friends, although we didn't get started on stamping/scrapbooking until about 1:00!  I arrived at 9:00 and started spreading my stuff out and getting orgainized, etc.  And visiting, of course:)  Then I realized I had forgotten acrylic blocks.  Oops!  So we made a trip to Michael's, which was about 15 minutes away.  Our other friend arrived about 11:15 and she had forgotten the pictures that she was going to scrapbook with, but she had pictures from a recent trip to Alaska, so we went back to Michael's to get her a new album so she could work with her new pictures, instead.  Of course, by that time it was lunch time, so we stopped at Wendy's to eat.  It was after 1:00 by the time we got back.  However, I did get five cards done using my limited supplies and card parts.  It was very fun.  Then another couple and our husbands came later and we had a nice dinner of grilled burgers and brats, etc. and more visiting.  A late, but awesome, day for sure!  I'll be sharing my cards when I can.  Today we have to get ready to celebrate our son's birthday.  His birthday is Tuesday, but they'll come over tomorrow.  Another great time.  I hope everyone has a great Saturday - or whatever day you happen to be reading this!


Edited to add: Thanks to Maki (Makiko Jones) for suggesting I submit this card for Sweet 'n Sassy's Back to School challenge.


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Adorable card. Sounds like I am not the only one who plans things out and then forgets to take an important part of what I need. Usually I change my mind about what I am doing and then don't have the stuff to do the new thing. Fortunately Georgia has it ALL!

Great card Lynette! I'm going to have to take a look at those digi stamps. So glad you had a such a wonderful day with your friends.
Enjoy your BD celebration for your son.
