FLASH CARD VIDEO - Elegant Friend - Create this card in a flash - see the video at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com - July 21, 2017 blog post

I just love creating Flash Cards.  I never tire of them. After 5 years of teaching Flash Cards, I am still amazed at what can be done with those 2 little pieces of cardstock.

Today’s card is really elegant and pretty.  The Lovely Friends stamp set is a favorite of mine… oh who am I kidding, I have TONS of favorites!  lol  Seriously though, I love this set for it’s big and bold sentiments.  I think I was so focused on the sentiments that I never realized how beautiful the flowers were.  Aren’t they gorgeous?

I also added the Lovely Words thinlits to this card.  That bold black really compliments the Pool Party and Island Indigo.

I added a delicate touch with the Delicate White Doilies.  It softened the card nicely.

Most weekends we look forward to.  Relaxing, sleeping in, enjoying the summertime.  Well, this weekend I am not necessarily jumping for joy.  We need to install the new dryer this weekend BUT before we do, we really… and I mean REALLY need to paint the laundry room.

Let me give you some back story because I know that some of you will be able to relate to this.  Let me take you back 10 years ago.  It was January and Mr. Awesome decided to surprise me with a new laundry room while I was away at a Stampin’ Up event.  Well, an ice storm caused me to cut my trip short.  The cabinets were installed but the project was never quite finished.  I have mentioned it to Mr. Awesome a few times that we need to finish it. “Don’t nag me. I’ll get it done. You don’t have to remind me every year!”  lol 

Well, this weekend is the weekend.  We really don’t want to install the new dyer when the walls really need paint and the cabinets need staining. It will probably be an “all weekend” project but there’s no more excuses.  I want my new dryer installed and there is NO WAY it’s going in until the project is done.

So while you’re relaxing by the pool, having a bar-b-que with friends, or enjoying some stamping time, take a moment to think of me.  You might even say a prayer that we don’t kill each other working together in that small space.  lol

Have a great weekend everyone!
