Reality Returns

By reality - I mean I have to work a 5 day work week this week - and I am busy so no slacking allowed on my part. I do prefer to be busy rather than try to look busy - everyone who feeds into my job will be back to work on Monday - so a fast pace will be required to get things done.
I have been busy this morning - I need to do dishes but I decided I was going to do my cooking before I did dishes - so before 9 this morning - I have a batch of chili made and a loaf of banana bread - had some bananas that needed to be used - still have two more - too bad I did not buy another box of banana bread mix. One load of laundry is done - needs to go into the dryer.
I have had fun making cards the last couple days - some of my resolutions are working - I am putting insides in all my cards - keeping my work area clear - not working. I did go do a little shopping though - shame on me - but it wasn't too much. If you stay out of the stores, you do not spend money - but I need to keep my LSS in business right.
The card I am sharing today is based on the sketch at Our Creative Corner - they have a new sketch every Saturday - they have the most beautiful designs for their sketch - their artists are fantastic. Of course I did take a little creative license with the design - added that strip in the middle.
I am going to work on a set of cards for my assistant for her birthday - she is a quilter - and I have lots of sewing stamps - so I plan to dig them out and use them - yeah BARB.
Paper - Paper collection book - Vintage - from Hot Off the Press
