I'll Drink to That!

ah.... saturday! a lazy morning of drinking tea, reading email, and crafting the time away. what could be better? throw in a good breakie, and i'll be complete!

this card today is for day 119 on 365 Cards - Seeing a Silhouette. i got this cute little A Muse stamp a fair time ago and have never used it! when i saw the challenge for today was a silhouette image, that stamp sprang to mind immediately!
i am still one card short for this week. i have not done much paper piecing so i'm struggling with picking a decent stamp to work with. once i get it done and post it today, i'll have completed the full week for my 2nd week in a row! is that a testament to the fact that i've been spending too much time stamping and not enough time working? who cares? i'm happy... (grin)

i mentioned before about this cute little easel i bought at IKEA for $0.99. seriously... and it's so fun to work with! i setup a whiteboard to place it on, and get a great clean background for my pics. today's seems really grainy for some reason. not sure why, since i'm using the same settings as usual. but i'm certainly not the world's best photographer. (i'll leave that to my husband!) if you want to check out his website of fab photography, go ahead to his site at www.3rdmp.com. he rocks! not just as a photographer, but as a husband too. i can't help but smile and get all gushy when i think about him. i'll depart on that note and leave you for now my fellow bloggers!
