Happy Monday!

No, really, I mean that.  As I said over on Snapdragon, yesterday I accidentally dropped my engagement ring in the toilet while it was flushing, and it didn't go down the pipes so I feel really lucky.  And then this morning, on my walk with my little doglets, I found a 10-pound note on the ground and no one around to claim it, so I made about $15 walking my dogs today.  How's that for a start to the week?

And I'm feeling pretty good that I got some scrapbooking done this weekend and I'm uploading more pics to get printed out to do even MORE scrapping.  I'm on FI-YUUUR (that's "fire" for you non-Southerners).

And I made a card today!

I was thinking about the current challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches when I was trying to get to sleep last night, and this idea popped in my head.   Even better, this card took me like ten minutes to put together and I LIKE it.  So yay!  I think I'll send this to my friend who's training for a half marathon and is also a professional photographer (I have serious photo envy just looking at the stuff she posts on Facebook).

Anywho, here's the sketch:

Yeah, I added a layer.  I think I need to get the chevron background stamp, 'cause I am loving that paper but it would be even more awesome to have chevrons in any color I want.  Oh wait, I do have a smaller chevron background stamp from the My Paper Pumpkin kit a couple months back, so I can use that for now :)

Have a fun-tastic week and thanks for stopping by!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Feel Goods
Ink:  Real Red
Paper:  Real Red, Pool Party, Whisper White, I Am Me DSP
Accessories:  Corner rounder & 1" square punch, retired Real Red satin ribbon (it's the only Real Red ribbon I have), staple (which unfortunately doesn't coordinate because it's hot pink--yes I have colored staples--but I don't think most people would notice except I just told you)
