Long Weekend Bliss

Happy Sunday! Here in Canada it's a long weekend and I'm enjoying that fact tremendously. I've had time to stamp a bit (trying to get some Father's Day cards together to sell) which I've missed so much! We're also doing a bit outside in the yard and painting our bedroom. We're finally getting rid of the awful pink that was here when we moved in and that we've lived with for a year and a half.
I do have a card to share with you that I made last weekend. A good friend asked me if I had any birthday cards in my basket to sell. I asked her why and she told me she needed a card for another friend of hers, one that I also know but only as an aquaintance. I offered to custom make something for her, as I was desperate to stamp last weekend but didn't have much motivation. I used the same Lockhart stamp and made it a little more "cottagey".

I think the paper is from We R and the sentiment is Papertrey. The cardstock is Prism and the ribbon is SU purely pomegranate. I think I'm going to miss purely pom when it retires from the catalogue this year. Sorry for the poor quality of the picture, I was in a hurry. Next week is my last week of work and I'm looking forward to it! It's been nice to be needed, and certainly the extra money is nice, but it's been very challenging for me and my family. I'm looking forward to being back home full time again. This experience has cemented for me how blessed I am to be a stay at home mom. I know it's not the right decision for everyone, but it certainly is for me!

Another lovely card, Kerry! Gosh, a SAHM again? How wonderful for you. I KNOW you are looking forward to that...and perhaps a little more stamping time too?

Great job, my friend!

Beautiful card, Kerry! I came over from Stampin' Canada to check out your blog and I love it. The link to Crafty Storage is incredible - might cause a big re-org of the craft space.
