NEW WEEK, NEW CARD

Good Monday morning to you!! Hope your weekend was as great as mine!

Saturday we went out to the ski lake for an afternoon of fun with some friends. We spent the afternoon waterskiing, snackin', talking' & lazin'!! It was wonderful! The weather was perfect and the company refreshing!

Sunday we went to church......I just LOVE our church.....you can check out their blog which is listed on Blog List (Free Grace Church). This was mine turn in the nursery.......great way to get my "baby fix"!!. When we got home we spent the afternoon relaxing. The kids worked on their country reports for school and I did a bit of stamping. Steve had to work on Sunday.....which is ALWAYS a bummer!!!

The card I made on Sunday afternoon is a very CAS (clean and simple) card. Very easy too.....The leaves of the tree were inked with Old Olive and then I wiped off the top of the trunk and used my Chocolate Chip marker to color in the trunk....it just seemed to tedious to me to use a marker for all the leaves. It made this card go much quicker! Also, the stamp set Thoughts & Prayers is one of those sets that makes whatever you do look GREAT!!!
I think that I will make a few sets of these for my stash that I'm stockpiling for the Flatlander's Craft Fair on May 9th.....I'm trying NOT to completely FREAK OUT about that. I need to remember that steady plodding brings success!!!

Until next time,
Find some time for stamping!!!
Blessings, Cindy
