Aren't Saturday's the best? Weekends in general...no time in the office...48 hours of uninterruped time that I own and control. We've planned so many fun things for this weekend that it almost outweighs all of the cleaning we're doing. I'm using the 'we' terminology loosely when it comes to the cleaning. So far the husband has vacuumed and steam cleaned the carpets and taken out the garbage. I've...well...I cooked a large breakfast for him, made this card (and am posting early!) and snuck out for a pedicure. I'll be paying the price for that shortly, I'm sure! As for this card, it's my second attempt at Beate's weekend sketch challenge. I like this one better! It's another 4.25" square and this time I embossed it with my script Cuttlebug folder. Most everything is obvious, but the sentiment was stamped with PTI's Out on a Limb set and then punched out with SU's large oval punch. I free-handed cutting an oval mat out of aqua mist and then distressed the edges of the mat to cover up any cutting imperfections. Sneaky, but effective.
Until next time...M
