upsy daisy

Friday

So...is anyone else extremely happy that it is Friday? I am! It has been a very busy week but not as busy as next week will be! Hopefully I'll get some stamping done this weekend so I can keep up with my posts next week!

Here is the last card that we made at my stamp club last night. It is a lovely, yet simple card that is one of those that makes you feel so accomplished when you are done! This card is a wonderful idea from my SU! demo magazine called Stampin' Success. I love the Baja Blue color with the chocolate chip ribbon. Very classic looking. The Upsy Daisy set is perfect for lots of cards because it has birthday, thinking of you, and friendship sentiments. I made this same card with the thinking of you sentiment for my two oldest to send to their dad and grandmother as the beloved matriarch of the family died on Monday night. They are both very sad at the loss of the great-grandma and wanted to send a card of support. Aren't they just the sweetest?!

Today brings not quite so much to do so hopefully I'll get some great stamping time in. In the meantime you all have a super wonderful Friday!

***Edit...okay, you guys our friend needs us! Not only is Courtney displaced by the hurricane at the moment but she took her son to the ER last night and he has strep. I know she is so overloaded with stress right now and I think we need to shower her with cards. Please contact me ASAP for her address so you can send her, and the kids, a card! Thanks!***
