It's Wednesday and.....

I'm OFF for the next FIVE NIGHTS!!!!!!
WOOHOO!!! I'm LOV'IN it!!
I look SO forward to my days off and I 'plan' to get SO much accomplished. Most times I don't get NEAR half of what I'd LIKE to get done, done but......that's the way it goes right? There just NEVER seems to be enough time in the day!
Well, this morning when I got home I decided, BEFORE I was going to lay down for a 'nap', that I was going to work on and FINISH a card set for a friend of mine. I wanted something SIMPLE because I wanted to be able to send these out for her TODAY. Joe went out fishing with a friend, I dropped the kids off at school, came home and went to work. These are what I came up with:

I made 4 of each card for a total of, YES! 12 cards! :)
All pattern paper is from a card pack/book I got from COSTCO forever ago. The cardstock is CTMH and SU!. Ribbon is Offray. 'J' stamp is from CTMH Believe Caps. I was inspired by Michelle Wooderson's blog, Mish Mash. If you've never been to her blog I encourage you to click here and check it out. She's AMAZING!!! I visit her blog at LEAST DAILY. No kidding!!
This is how I packaged them:
...again inspired by Michelle.
I purchased the clear boxes from PaperTrey Ink (If you've not been here yet either, you've GOTTA go!!!) and just wrapped it with some offwhite satin ribbon (Offray). I'm going to include a decorated pen and get them out to her later today!!
I'm SO glad I can get these off in the mail today!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope to be able to post something more later on today.
OH! and Joe's been working in my new 'studio'. He's pulled up the carpet and laid down the 'paper'. HOPEFULLY he'll begin laying the wood flooring later today once he returns from fishing. I'm SO excited to move into a bigger room. I don't know for sure WHEN exactly I'll be 'moving in' as we've talked about repainting as well and I'd REALLY like to get the painting done before moving everything up there.
Until next time.........
Happy Stamping!
