Sunday already?

I can't believe it is already Sunday night. Where did the weekend go? We are still the household of the sick but I'm trying to keep a good attitude about it...the kids are building up a great immune system. I didn't get much accomplished today except for a long afternoon nap and a couple birthday cards that I should have had done last week. When I'm in stamping rut I tend to stamp and color a lot of images for future use. Today I wanted to throw together 2 cards in less than 30 minutes (the amount of time the crab cake mix has to sit in the fridge before I could make dinner). I dug through my colored image box and found these cute Penny Black chickens. Have I mentioned that I just love Penny Black? So I glittered, added the balloon, stamped the sentiment and threw these (I made 2) together in 36 minutes. Not too bad, especially since I just used scraps of paper that were already laying all over my craft table. I like how it turned out so much I decided to post it before I finished making supper...now I'm off to fry some crab cakes. Hope you all had a great weekend!

I wish I could throw a card together in 36 minutes!!! I can't even find my staming table in that amount of time! :o) Thanks for putting a new post up, I've been checking all day. I have so much to do and I don't want to do any of it, therefore, I've been stalking your blog. I did go buy some plant and get the flower bed replanted. I looks great.
