Yikes! It's Friday!

Hello stampers!

How did Friday arrive so quickly? Wasn't Tuesday just yesterday?  Needless to say, I've been a busy bee this week, and being busy just makes the time fly by.  When there's nothing much going on, the days seem to go by at a much slower pace.  Remember those summers when you were a kid?  The days seemed to stretch on forever, with swimming and bike-riding and lazing around with a book or just lying on your back on the grass, looking at the clouds. Then we grew up and took on life as adults and now the seasons flip by with ever-increasing speed that is just plain scary!  

Well, I know you came here to see a card, so let's get to it, shall we?

Isn't this a dramatic card?  I love how the yellow and green "pop" against the black background.  This lovely card was made by one of my downline members, Janet Jones.  She used the gorgeous Botanical Gardens suite of products to create this beauty.  The DSP on the right-hand side of the card was cut with the curvy leaf framelit from the Botanical Builder Framelits set.  The flowers and that pretty tropical leaf were also cut using the Botanical framelits.  
The only stamping on the card is the sentiment, which is from the 
Butterfly Basics stamp set on page 124 of the annual catalog.
Thanks, Janet, for allowing me to show your card on my blog!

The weekend is almost here, so if you can, slow down just a little.  Yes, I know you have a lot of things on your "to-do" list, but you'll never come to the end of all your "shoulds."  As soon as you cross one off, another one pops up to be added.  So I'm giving you permission to ignore your list for a few hours and just play with your stamps and ink.  You'll find it incredibly refreshing to take a break and be creative, even if it's just for a couple of hours.  
Relax and enjoy the weekend!
