One of My Nicest Thoughts



Good morning!  Ah, Saturday morning, almost as sweet as Friday afternoon.  However, starting next Saturday, I’ll be enjoying the week days  more instead of the weekend.  My favourite days reverse in the summer!  I think it’s because I enjoy the pleasure of being home during the work week…daytime talk shows, checking the mail, going for lunch.  Today’s card colours come from this week’s colourQ palette.  An unusual combination but I tried to make it work with some fun patterned paper and a sweet bow.  That wee sentiment is from Verve’s Small Phrases which is on sale right now over in the Verve Store!!  I’ll have a bit more play time this weekend!  My once cold studio in the winter has turned into the nicest cool place for summer stamping!  Have a fabulous weekend!  See you soon!

I'm still thinking on this color palette! I love the big polka dots against the yellow gingham! Off for a walk and two baseball games today!!
