Well, here it is again – FRIDAY! Wow. It’s weird that I sit at work and the time drags but then I write my posts and my first week in AZ is already in the history books! I’m most definitely not complaining – I’m already looking forward to the end of the trip!
So, in my Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator persona, one thing I can never have too many of is Thank You cards! When I recently sent my 2016 Occasions Catalog shares out, I included (as I always do!) a Thank You note in each package. I put together a stack of them, using the Watercolor Thank You stamp and some of the new Sale-a-Bration Perfectly Artistic DSP. I liked them so much that I decided to make a few more, and share them with you! Take a look-see:

Happy First-Day-Of-The-Weekend, folks! I hope you have pretty weather and a lovely day planned! My day revolves around frantically trying to finish up a few cards to take with me for next week. Oh – and packing. Clothes are easy! Stampin’ stuff….not so much! What to take? What to leave? What if I leave something and then just NEED it when I’m there?!?! Oh the stress! I’m thinkin’ that I’m going to take only Occasions and SAB stamps and DSPs…and a couple of staple sentiment sets from the Annual Catalog. And the card stock that coordinates with the DSP. And punches. And Framelits. And TIEFs. And – of course! – my Big Shot! Which sounds like a completely doable (if suitcase-busting!) plan. If only I could wiggle my nose like Samantha Stevens and my bags would be packed! I kinda dated myself right there, didn’t I!?!? 😉
Anyway – I’ve got a pretty card to share today that uses what is likely my very favorite suite from the Occasions Catalog – the Botanical Gardens Suite. I love everything associated with this suite. This card uses the Botanical Builder Framelits and the Botanical Gardens DSP. I combined it with a sentiment from Watercolor Words (another fave set from the Annual Catalog), and this is what I came up with. Take a look-see:

Monday Monday. Welcome to the start of another work week. I’m trying to come up with something witty and clever to say about work. And Monday. But, I got nuthin’. Well, nuthin’ clever that is. Or witty. But, I do have a factoid for you about Monday. Did you know (I got this from a Huffington Post article conducted in 2013), that 78% of people in a poll by Monster.com said they get the “Sunday evening blues” as they come to terms with the idea of Monday happening? It might even be a bigger number now. And, it even said that people who LIKE their jobs get the blues on Sunday afternoon. Huh. So – what to do? Some say do the not-fun stuff (clean the house, grocery shop, etc) on Saturday and then do a FUN thing on Sunday. Huffington suggests writing down on paper how you’re feeling and why…… really?!? Any of you get the Sunday evening blues and wish Monday would just not roll around? How do YOU beat it?
But, one fun thing about this Monday is a new card to share! I combined a couple of different stamp sets for this one, tapping the background stamp called World of Thanks, Watercolor Words and Layered Letters Alphabet, to come up with this clean and simple card. Take a look-see:
