Pin It


Whimsical Words: follow your heart

Happy Thursday! Yay, it's almost Friday! Are you with me?! Yesterday was a good day, no need to get out Ms. Swamp after all, lol! We did make new pledges to each other...theirs on behavior and following rules, etc...mine on making fun lessons and activities for them and getting enough sleep! I made good on the second part so far, went to bed at 6:30 pm (with a migraine, blah, I think it was a weather front) and woke up at 5:00 am, wow! This may be the first day I don't absolutely *need* Starbucks, but I hate to risk it, ha!

Here's a simple little card, but the photo didn't turn out great, and I only seemed to take one for some crazy reason. I love the Basic Gray cardstock too, but he seems to get forgotten a lot since he's competing with Kraft, and now Soft Suede too!

Adios for now! Hope you have a great Thursday! Hugs and happy stamping!

I used to have days like that in school and they were no fun. I'm so glad that Miss Swamp didn't have to come out. We love that book!

Your card is gorgeous. I haven't used Basic Gray in a long long time. It has been sorely neglected.

Wow, that is a lot of sleep. Out house did a 'catch-up' like that over the weekend.
Your card is super cute, love the Amethyst with the celery. The layout is super fab too
{BTW, congrats on the Moxie Fab, I knew that color combo card was going to be a winner again}

Fabulous!!! I love the combo of elements. I need to use Soft Suede more. It is a good replacement for kraft.

I've never heard of Miss Swamp. I'll have to see if we have it in our library.
