It can't be...

It simply canNOT be Monday already! The weekend flew by much too quickly.

I spent most of it either on taxes, or on our monthly reports, but I did manage to steal a few moments late last night to 'play' a little with an old stamp I haven't used in ages.

One of my 'Angel' friends in the Windy City, prides herself on using scraps, which I don't do as much of as I should, so this card is entirely from scraps. NO new sheets of paper used here! Ta da, I can't believe I did it!

The black print is from one of the TAC printed paper packs, I think perhaps the Tuscany Spice. The stamp is an American Art stamp that I think I picked up years ago at Hobby Lobby. The felt flowers and brads are bargains from our Big Lots store! I used Palette Noir Ink, and colored pencils, and most fun of all....

I never knew punching holes could be so much fun! I punched and punched and smiled and smiled! It will take me a while to become adept, but I love the look! This was done using Stampin' Up's template from their Mat Pack.

Anyway, this was just a little something to keep my mind off of numbers for awhile, but I think she's just a cutie. Let me know what you think!

(I hate that I can't get the photo's to look flat and straight - my cards always look curvy and off centered - the green line really is straight!!! lol)

Have an amazing Monday! Just think, we're only about 8 hours away from having one day down!

Great card!You've gotta love scraps. Try taking your pictures from an angle instead of straight on. This should help you with your dilemna.
