Sunshine

Hello!  Well, I've survived a Monday morning.  How funny, even as a retiree, I still look forward to the weekends, and dread Monday's.  I wonder about me sometimes :)


Just had a fun card to share today. I needed something spur of the moment.  This image was laying on my worktable, and was going to be a focal panel on a Happy Retirement card. Well, when I dropped the stamp right onto the image, it left a nasty smear on the right side. What to do, what to do? Well, the paper cutter chopped off the bad side, and some of the bottom, and I found that it fit perfectly into the window of some ready made cards I purchased from the Paper Cut at the Collinsville show.
Added a fun Stamps by Judith sentiment, and voila!

FIVE minute card!  Yeah, made me happy!!!  Just put the image in the window, covered it with a scrap of cardstock, and stamped the sentiment. Voila...

Hope your week's off to a good start.
Thanks for stoppig by today :)

Happy Monday!
Patti J.

I so know what you mean, Patti. Also being retired it took me a long time to get used to the fact that everyone day is now a Saturday!

I love this card. What a fabulous layout... sometimes our goofs make for the best cards!

What a gorgeous 'oops'! Love your sponging and how the silhouette image is really showcased against those colors. One of my fav color combos is aqua & black ... awesome!

Your card is gorgeous! Even for Monday!!! Hugs, MF.

Beautiful card! Bright and cheery!

Always enjoy your sponged background cards. This is lovely, and you did a super save on it too! Had to chuckle at your retiree & Monday comment. I'm the same way when Friday comes. Doesn't really make much difference in our day-to-day routine when the wkend comes, but guess that Friday mentality is ingrained. I'm always thankful on Sunday nite that I don't face office politics the next morning. Loved your card, and aren't Paper Cuts wonderful to have on hand (If I remember I have them and _where_ they might be hiding!). TFS the pretty card and the good giggle.

Beautiful CAS card Patti, that little spalsh of yellow is just the perfect amount of colour.
I don't really mind Mondays, now Tuesdays, that's a different story! Hate them!

Cheryl W said...
