Lazy Days

Lazy Days… I’m having quite a few of those! It’s actually been pretty dull since I can’t do any heavy lifting or strenuous activities. This weekend, while Bryan and Riley were out enjoying their day riding, Austin and I were stuck at home. Austin wasn’t feeling all that great, he had a low grade temp and came home early from school Friday. Austin and I spent our time together watching movies… all three Shrek movies, Transformers, and Wild Hogs…there was no way I could talk him into watching Pride and Prejudice.

Today I had a chance to stamp and this is the card I made. A great stamping friend Tracey (SCS racey) and I recently swapped images and this is one she sent me, Lazy Days from Penny Black. What happen to me not swapping stamped images? Let me explain… I made a decision at the beginning of the year not to stamp image requests anymore. I was getting emails and private messages weekly from ladies wanting images stamped for them. Some ladies asked for a few while others requested more than 50… I stamped and sent images to anyone who asked. After awhile I was spending my free time stamping images for ladies instead of stamping for myself… that’s when I decided not to do anymore image requests. Now I’ll only send to ladies from our Yahoo Group and Tracey. I hope you all understand and don’t think I totally mean for not sending images to those of you that requested some recently.

The “Just sitting around…” sentiment is from Inky Antics. The Heavenly Blue and Blush cardstock is from Close to My Heart and the pattern paper is from DCWV Stack Pocket Full of Posies. I’m going to have to make another card using this image since I messed up this one. Can you find my mistake? Thanks for reading ~ Jovi
