Time Well Spent

Zachy is at his last day of pre-school for the year :(  I relish the whole two hours I have with no one else home but me.. I usually read my e-mail, eat breakfast and get ready for the day.  If I am getting ready for a class I can be found at the computer or in my studio/stamp/scrapbook/my own space room in the basement with a classic movie I have seen so many times  that it's like singing along to your favorite song. I don't really even watch it I just like having the company. I watched "The Holiday" with Cameron Diaz, Jack Black, Jude Law and Kate Winslet  for the 300th time while I made this card. 


I found this really cute card idea on Dawn Griffiths blog. This is a card I made for a card exchange I have in my neighborhood. I had to crank out 10 of these in less that 2 hours. In the end my sweetheart helped me finish putting them together.. HOw cUte is hE!!!!! It was brand new technique I had never done. It's called. "Faux designer paper or faux paper tearing technique. It's really fast and fun. I demonstrated this at my last 2 clubs and it went over well. I will be showing the rest of my stamp club girls how to do this technique as well. Have I ever told you that I will cry the day we can't buy the current in-colors. I think I will have to have a memorial for them on my blog. I LOVE!!!!! the current in-colors.
