FLASH CARD - Fabulous Everything Eleanor - www.SimplySimpleStamping.comWhat a fun weekend this was!  Sorry about not posting on Friday.  I was gone all day on a stamping adventure with my best friend, Kim.  I must admit, I don’t really like to stamp with other people.  I don’t know why really.  I just prefer to stamp alone.  What’s funny, Kim is the same way.  Maybe that is why we do great stamping together?  We don’t really pay much attention to what the other is doing but we do show off our final creations to each other.

Kim was working away on Valentine cards while I was working on Thank You cards for my online customers (so if you’re reading this, act surprised when it comes in the mail).  I have had the Everything Eleanor stamp set for a long time and decided it was time to get it inky.

FLASH CARD - Fabulous Everything Eleanor - www.SimplySimpleStamping.com FLASH CARD - Fabulous Everything Eleanor - www.SimplySimpleStamping.comI love the simplicity of this card but more than that, I love the COLORS of this card!!!

Right now it is 22° with single digit wind chills.  Yeah, I needed to stamp in SPRING colors.  I am so tired of the cold.  I know most of you, even those of you in typical warm states, are pretty darn cold right now too.

FLASH CARD - Fabulous Everything Eleanor - www.SimplySimpleStamping.comPistachio Pudding, Very Vanilla, Baked Brown Sugar, and Crisp Cantaloupe.  Yum.  Now I’m hungry (we have way too many colors with food in the name).  I punched out the Petite Petals flowers and the flower from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.  A dot of Silver Dazzling Details and my card is done.

Want a video?  Join me tomorrow and I will have one.  This one is SUPER quick and I know you’ll like that.

I am so busy right now that SUPER quick is definitely necessary.  In the words of Truvy, “I am as busy as a one-armed paper hanger!”  We open “Steel Magnolias” next Thursday and the entire cast is feeling the pressure.  It’s coming together and I know it will be great but it’s still very stressful.  The theater’s photographer is coming tomorrow to take pictures and I will post them as soon as I get them.

I also had a great weekend hanging out with Mr. Awesome!  Both my kids were gone this weekend at a church retreat so we hung out with Kim and her Mr. Awesome, Gary, on Friday night.  Watched movies and shared some wine and cheese.  Just a nice relaxing time.  So much fun.  Saturday, was spent shopping at Hobby Lobby for fun decor for my stamp room.  I found the fabric for my curtains, some retro wall art, and some accessories for my desk.  On our way home, we had to make a grocery run and look what we saw!

How cool is that?  I had never seen it before!  It totally made my day.  🙂

But Sunday it was back to the theater for a 4 ½ hour rehearsal.  That sounded like an eternity for me but you know, it was one of the best rehearsals I’ve had so far.  The director pulled me aside after rehearsal and said, “You are rocking the crap out of this show.”  lol  That really made my day!  He’s a great director with great vision.  It’s been a blast working with him.

This is what I call a FUN FUN FUN weekend!  I hope yours was amazing as well!  I hope MONDAY is fabulous….just like you!
