a double feature!!














HAPPY FRIDAY!!! I am so glad the weekend is here!! I am anxious to hang out with Shawners a little this weekend since he spent 1/2 the week out of town! After working on grad. announcements most of the day and then dinner, yardwork, 3 boys haircuts and a quick pick up through the house....I was so tired and just wanted to crawl into bed and go to sleep last night! But wouldn't ya know it...as I was getting my glass of water and about to head up to bed I saw my stamp table and thought...oh just a quick card wouldn't hurt!! Shawn was doing a couple things on the computer and I thought...just a quick card while he is busy! I don't think I have ever done a simple white card before in all my stamping...I always pull out color or cover up the white so I wanted to make a clean white card. I decided to make 2...since it was a simple card. {You can never have too many cards on hand!...right?!!} Easy...these would've taken about 5 mins. to make but I decided to cut out the flowers so that took a little more time...but still pretty fast for 2 cards. THANK YOU, THANK YOU for coming by and all the nice comments! Have a fantabulous Friday!!!
***so did I go to bed after stamping my 2 quick cards?...NO...I remembered The Office was on & also Grey's Anatomy was back!...and watched that and then got my second wind and didn't fall alseep until almost 1:00am...ugh!!!

No, you're fabulous! (get it?!) Seriously, you did a GREAT job with your simple white cards, definitely worth staying up for! And I know just what you mean...no matter how tired you are and want to go to bed, stuff just keeps drawing you away from the bed and rest!
