Happy Friday!

So…I’m home today…doing the happy dance, because the only plans that I have for the day…so far… are catching up on the last 13 episodes of Private Practice. I know, I’s not the most exciting vacation…but I’m going to totally love it!
Yesterday…my big plans were picking up my Craft room, making sure everything was back in it’s place…neat and tidy and all pretty again. After that, I was able to catch up on some cards that I needed to make, which left me with a completely thrashed and not so pretty Craft room. It really is just a vicious cycle, isn't it?. So, just know that every tool I used to make this card, and quite a few that I didn’t end up using…are sitting on my craft table right…in a not so pretty heap….P1000559 copy
Today’s card, is for the House Mouse and Friends Love Challenge.
I went way out on a limb here (wink, wink) and chose this adorable stamp, Love Bunny for my card.
P1000564 copyI wanted to make an Easel Card, so I double matted the inside with a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch and the Spellbinder’s Nestabilities Eyelet Squares. The border stamp is from the
SSD matching Spellbinders Stamp, Beaded Ovals. My sentiment was made on my computer.

The mat for my image was made with a Martha Stewart border punch. I simply cut each section and adhered them on to the back of the image. I had no idea how it was going to end up..or if I would have left over space…or what. So….I guess….I got lucky, huh?
That’s it for me today…I have a craft room to clean and to do that…I’ll need to get off this couch! :)
Thanks so much for visiting…and have a wonderful weekend!
