Loving weekends LOL!

Weekends are fabulous. For many weekends, but I just now started to appreciate this when I started working my "normal" job at the bank. I say normal becuase I always worked, but it was real estate which means your weekends or time off could be a Tuesday, Wednesday. Now that I havea more consistant week job and I have more time off on the weekends, they are precious.

Part of that is great challenges and finally getting time to enter into PTI's weekly contest. I used this color challenge from Curtain Call
Here is my card
The challenge was to use words from tons of different sets. I went with the love theme since I am a slacker and hadn't made my hubby a card yet. The words are from Mod Squad, Signatrue serries cupcake, damask designs, signature greetings, heart prints, mixed messages, faux ribbon and signature sayings. A whole bunch of love on this card!

Another thing I am loving is the felt and dies from PTI. Felt woolies are so expensive in stores and the idea that I can make my own just makes me smile! I just got my latest package of PTI goodness in the mail on Friday. (I also got the new Papercrafts Magazine that has MY OWN CARD in it !!!!!). Needless to say, it was a great day. The box was full of dies and impression plates and felt. I have been waiting to get some of these dies and they finally had them all there at the same time, so I jumped on it. One of the sets was the heart dies. LOVE.
It's a good life!
