Still in my jammies...

At 11:30am...shameful I know...but I have all the laundry almost done
the house is vacuumed and smelling a little less like Eau de Doggie
and I've been making stuff

First I decided to do another card using the sketch for Unity's Wed Challenge...( I wasn't really digging the one I made yesterday...somedays things just don't come together the way I want them to) it is

Supplies Used:

Unity Stamps "Owl always Love you"

Pattern paper MME, Pebbles Inc

Cardstock Worldwinn

I also did a layout using the sketch from the new site Inspired Blueprints...This was a really great sketch to work with and I really haven't been scrapbooking much lately so it was fun trying to get my groove back...

Supplies used
Stamps CTMH
Cardstock Bazzill, WorldWin
Pattern Paper Karen Foster, Bo Bonny
I made the bunch of grapes using my circle punch, and cut out flourishes for the leaves...and yes it took forever and my hand hurts I used the really, really, really old CM punches....I'm cheap remember?

I don't know how much I'll be around the next few days, tomorrow starts my "week on" at work...I have a pretty nice schedule working every other week....but I wish I could just stay home and make stuff all the time..

Since I'm back from my summer blogging hiatus and blogging more regularly I really need to get back into the habit of counting my blessings...

Today I'm grateful for:
1. being able to still be in my jammies at 11:30am
2. my new coffeemaker
3. a beautiful fall day
4. the fact that my neighbor isn't phased by my walking around in my pj's at 1130 taking pictures of cards and layouts in my backyard I have serious bedhead
5. the opportunity to miss having my kids around while they're at school

Thanks for stopping by!

Great card and layout. It's so wonderful to stay in jammies well into the day. I love weekend days when I'm able to do that.
