Hello sunshine!

Wheeeeewww... did you hear that? Yep, it was me breathing a huge sigh of relief. :)

It was a stressful week but I managed to complete everything I needed to get done and now I can enjoy the weekend. Yeah! Do I have big plans? Heck no. I'm just gonna chill and relax here at home and let the snow continue to fall all around me... well, and make some cards too. ;)
Though I really need to clean the crafty room because it totally looks like a tornado ran through there, oy!
Boy is that the story of my life... jumping from project to project, leaving a path of 'organized' chaos in my wake.Ok, I'm probably being a bit generous with the 'organized' part of that description but denial ain't just a river in Egypt my friends. ;)

So after a hectic day I tried to do my part to leave the crafty room a little less messy than I found it by using up some more of that Basic Grey card kit. And again this one doesn't follow their recipe because I just had to put my own spin on it so I could fit little Sake on there. She's another Ketto stamp that I've had since this summer and she let me know it was her turn to see ink. :) Hey, she was super quick to color and that was exactly what I needed today especially when I was also looking for something to fit this week's Diedrich Dare inspiration. It's a little make up set with some Asian flair to it so miss Sake was perfect! Oh and I'm still lovin' that PTI cardstock too... ;)

Have a wonderful Saturday everyone!
