3 Day week ends

Inside of card

Envelope

I love 3 day week ends but you know you will pay for it at work on the 4 days you work - but it won't stop me from enjoying the 3 days. Yesterday I went and visited with my Mom - it was a nice visit - in the winter I don't like to stay overnight - I do not trust the weather in Wisconsin. I did have a little paper therapy on the way home. In fact, the paper used in this card, was bought yesterday. As a former sewer - I could not resist the paper.
I played with paper all day and just got out of my PJ's only because I needed to go let the neighbor's dog out.
My card tonight is based on the sketch at Card Positioning Systems. Moxie Fab World has a challenge on their January 13 post - in celebration of their new magazine - Card Creations: Inside and Out - I did purchase this magazine and it is great - wonderful ideas to help you design and finish your card. I decided to take it one step further and I decorated my envelope also - you should never send a "naked" envelope.
Everyone have a wonderful evening. Australian Tennis Open starts tonight - yeah - I love to watch tennis.
