{More Lime Rickey and I hate morning!!!}

OK---I love my job--really, I do. I'm so blessed that I have a job that I love and I work with some of my best friends in the world, BUT---I do hate the morning! And getting up at 5:20 5 mornings a week now has ruined my weekend! NO, I don't have to get up that early do get ready, but I think I'm a better wife and mom, teacher, friend, if I have some time to myself, with God's precious word, just to sit and drink some coffee.....you get the picture....BEFORE I face anyone else. SOOOOO, I get up early. Then, on Saturday, I wake up at 5:00 AM---SERIOUSLY!!! What is that about??? I was able to go back to sleep until....wait for it....6:30 whoo-hoo! Yep, it's a curse, but, I must say once I'm up, I do enjoy the quiet house and beautiful weather on my deck at that time of day!!

OK---enough complaining! Here's a card I made in about 20 minutes! I made it the other day when I was playing with my Lime Rickey Chip Stickers---I had forgotten that I had used this tag again(it's the same one I used on my last card here)---but oh well---it has a different sentiment! This is just a clean and simple card. I made a 5.25" square card out of Rustic cream cardstock. I cut a large piece of Catawba Flip paper from the Lime Rickey line and added a piece of New Leaf satin ribbon. I stamped this tag from 2009 Autumn tags and added the enjoy sentiment from the same set. I added two little Taylor's Tiny Twinkles from Taylored Expressions. I love these and they come in so many different colors! So much fun to add a little bling to your card! On the detail shot you can tell I had pierced a circle in the patterned paper, but it really doesn't show up. After I finished the card, I thought about adding a piece of green galore paper in a circle with THAT pierced. I think that would have looked great, but I needed to quit stamping, so I just left it. Lesson learned---piercing patterned paper doesn't usually show up! You don't have to tell me twice! I'll remember now!

Well, I need to go take my dog for a walk while it's still cool...ish. I hope you enjoy your weekend. We are going to the Durham Bulls game tonight. Hannah's choir is singing the National Anthem and we have wanted to go all summer and haven't, so this will be a fun night to go---fireworks and all!

Your early morning wakeup explains the early a.m. comments on my blog! N and I joke that we won't sleep in on Saturdays until our kids are much older--they have no concept of Saturday being a sleep in day:-) Love the GREEN card! And, maybe we will see you at the game tonight--we are going with friends.
