Cannot tell a lie...

Okay, so I cannot tell a lie! Above is a five minute card. Really. Five minutes - actually, maybe not quite that long! I folded my cardstock into a card, did a little minor distressing along the edges, cut & adhered a piece of already patterned already embellished card stock to fit, and stamped "You're Invited" at the bottom. Voila - done!

It's Saturday in Missouri! That means a trip to Lowe's to pick up things we need to work our little fingers to the bones in the bathroom! I think first on today's list is a corner strip for the drywall corner. It is so hard to be patient! Kind of like that silly prayer, "God, please give me patience, and give it to me NOW"! My personal bathroom goal today is to finish the scraping!

We had to take a rather long drive yesterday, and the tree colors were like a patchwork quilt. It was amazing to see how the leaves have changed so quickly, when we are still having temps fo 40-80 degrees. It's not dropped toward freezing or frost yet at all.

Well, I'm signing off for now. Need to make a Wal-Mart run before they get too much busier, and get back here to start on scraping. I hope that you all have a wonder"fall" day. Melissa, hopefully your piano lessons will go well, and that Monday will be the beginning of better work days for you. John, I just pray you have a good weekend and that Monday is the beginning of a better work week for YOU! Tami, wherever you are today, know that my thoughts and prayers are with you 100fold. I cannot believe that all of this is happening to you, and not only happening, but happening AGAIN! My big prayer for you this week is that you win the lottery and don't have to 'move' again on Monday. I'm so sorry girl...

Take care everyone! PJ

  1. thanks for the shout-out. I'm gonna be okay. I alway am.... I have to believe that the Lord has placed me where he wants me at this time. I just have to be observant, learn what I can, and look for the blessings. You, my dear friend, are a blessing to me. Enjoy your scraping...ugh

  2. Wow! I can't believe that is a five minute card. Absolutely gorgeous!
