Someone stole my week....

It's Friday again. Really?
Time sure flies when one is retired!
Hope you are all planning a fun and relaxing weekend with friends or loved ones.
DH and I are going shopping tomorrow for 'wedding' wear for our son and future DIL's wedding
in September.  We are going to have a 'date'.  Love it when that happens!

Thought I'd share a couple of things that haven't made it out here yet!
Sometimes, we just need something very, very quick. That's what I am sharing today.
A bit of patterned paper, solid cardstock, and a couple of stamps - voila!

I have a friend who was having some bad days - feeling 'invisible' or not important.
There is a great blog, Ginger's House, that offers free sentiments nearly every day. Just when I 
needed something to cheer up my friend, Ginger posted this.
Perfect!  Just like my friend!
If you've never been to Ginger's blog, you really should go! It's full of fun :)

Used my Perfect Paper Crafting Mini Rulers for the beautiful matting on each of these!
Check out my sidebar for details.

This is also a sentiment from Ginger.  Another friend had been in the hospital for over six weeks.
I thought this would be fun for her.  On the inside, I wrote something pretty sarcastic, like
'enough is enough' - we miss you, or something silly - don't recall exactly.
Whatever it was, it made her laugh - that's what mattered!

This next card has an image from an old Gina K. Designs set, that I still pull out when I need a coffee related card.  Again, the sentiment is from Ginger.  A grown man we know is going through a pretty tough
time.  He drinks coffee from sun up to sun down, and usually ends the day with a
glass of wine or cold beer.  He's a pretty good guy, a good Christian, and
this sentiment just had his name written all over it.

Thanks for stopping by, have an awesome weekend!
I'm hosting a fun challenge next Wednesday, 
and I can't wait until Friday when I show you some beautiful things 
from the Die-Versions Christmas release!!!

Hugs & lot of smiles...
Patti J.

I'm glad we don't have to pick a favorite card because I love all of them. Thank you for using my sentiments so beautifully!

I love the thoughts and sentiments!! Especially the one about being alone!! I have a saying about that - it goes like this: We all need time to be alone - to think, to dream, to wonder!! I actually cross-stitched it for my MIL because she loved it so much!! Have a wonderful night!!
