Hey There, Hi, Hello....

Hooray for weekends!  
Even though I'm retired, I still look forward to Saturday's, because my DH can be home with me.  Slow weekend here, but it's a THREE day weekend!  Dinner and a movie with high school friends of DH's tonight, church and a potato bake dinner tomorrow, and hopefully, a quiet day on Monday.  Of course, as we all know, never, EVER plan on a quiet day!

I have a card to share today that I made for the "Hey There, Hi, Hello" challenge at The Impression Obsession Blog.

I decided after using so much bling on the last couple of cards, that today's card should be pretty clean and simple.  That brought to mind the beautiful Colonial Life stamp from Impression Obsession.  A few minutes with some Copic markers, and a CAS card was born!  The hello sentiment was colored with a black marker, and was part of a longer sentiment....I wanted only the word hello.



Thanks for stopping by to visit!



Enjoy your weekend, and if you are traveling, please be safe!


Hugs and smiles,
Patti J.

Your 'Hello' card is beautiful! I love the stamp you used and the way you coloured it in is gorgeous.
Bling is awesome but it is nice sometimes to keep it low key. I do try sometimes, but it's so difficult for me.
Thanks for sharing and hope you have a nice peaceful weekend with hubby. Although it is dangerous to plan on it being calm and peaceful. :)
