Monday’s Back Again

Is it really Monday again already?  Where do the weekends go, anyway?!  We had a nice weekend.  Feels like we got a few things done around the house, took the boys out for Happy Joe’s wonderful vegetarian pizza with sauerkraut and had a restful day yesterday.  Well, the first part of yesterday was restful, anyway.

We decided to go for a walk last evening since the temperatures were spoiling us in the lower 70’s!  We looked at the radar, knowing there was a rain storm coming and decided we could get a little 20 minute walk in before anything would fall from the sky.  That was true.  We just didn’t stick to the plan (it was so nice outside!) and, as a result, I got my first outdoor run of the year pushing a kid’s bike!  It’s not flat country around here, so this morning I woke up wondering why in the world my gluteus maximus was so sore!  Then, I had a flashback of last evening’s mad dash for home with three little boys!  Yes, I remembered to capture our rain drenched family on the camera, so that picture will be finding its way into my Project Life album this week!  🙂  I don’t mind getting rained on (I like it!!), but lightning makes me a little nervous.  Lesson learned:  Try to remember your original plan and stick to it.  LOL!

I whipped up a card from that dreamy yellow called So Saffron this morning.  I really do love that color!  I’m not fond of bright yellows and this shade is just right.  Thanks to today’s Clean & Simple Challenge to use soft aqua, soft yellow and white in a card, I got to pull out the So Saffron!

Stamps – SU Pocket Silhouettes, Fabulous Phrases (sentiment)
Ink – SU So Saffron, Baja Breeze
Paper – Paper Trey white CS, SU So Saffron, Baja Breeze CS
Accessories – Sizzix embossing folder (Sparkly Flower), SU grosgrain ribbon (So Saffron), button, glue dots, sponge

When stamping the main image, I inked it up in the So Saffron ink and then lightly tapped the stamp in the Baja Breeze to give it a mixed look.  I was going to use SU’s markers and just detail the edges of the flowers with the Baja Breeze, but discovered I don’t have a Baja Breeze marker…yet.  Guess I need to be looking through my markers!

Enjoy your Monday!
