Laundry Day...

Yep, gotta do laundry today! Can't put it off any longer. In fact, the dryer is due to buzz any minute (ugh...just buzzed) with the first load of the day!

Hope that this FRIDAY (woo hoo!) finds all of you well, and that you have a very nice weekend to look forward to.

Last night, I decided that I simply HAD to play for a few minutes. So, I took this fabulously fun PRE-COLORED image from Doodle Pantry, and sat at my very messy (full of green scraps) desk, and worked up a CAS card.



The cute sheep, border, and sentiment are from this month's new release, and the Patchwork Star on the right is a new set this month as well. You can find them at the store, here.

I printed out the card front, complete with all artwork, and adhered it to a blue card base. Between the border and the main focal images, I added three strips of scor-tape. I peeled off one strip at a time, adding red, white, and blue glitters. I tied a floss knot and glued on the front of the patchwork star. Voila - done!!! I played, I slept like a baby, and I'm off to the laundry room...life is good!

Don't forget - you still have time to participate in the Doodle Pantry Challenge #13!!! Check it out here!

Hugs and smiles to all - have a great day!

Patti J.

So, so cute Patti! I thought the little star off to the side was a button at first. I LOVE it! Ahhhh laundry. I need to get a few loads done today as well, while dd is still sleeping. No you are not mistaken. It's 12noon and she is not up yet! I can not sleep that long. I usually wake up on my own after about 7 hours. Of course that doesn't count the 3-4 times I'm up during the night peeing! ha. the joys of growing old. I have a HUGE (12cm) fibroid and I have often wondered if that is part of the reason I get up to go so much during the night. TMI I hope you have time to do something fun today as well!

Hi Patti, how totally adorable is this! I love that border you made on the bottom. I just about freaked out when I thought you made the star into a button! Great idea!! This is just so cute! Hope all your laundry is done. The bad thing is that it never lasts.
Hugs, Sarah
