my new papertrey set...

I cannot believe the weekend is over...I say that every Monday don't I? lol!

I hope your weekend was great. On Friday, can you believe I spent the entire day just doing nothing? I edited some pictures of Ashley's dress fitting that I took on Thursday night (sorry cannot post them yet...just in case Nate checks out my blog), and did a lot of photography web surfing (so informative and time consuming, but I had fun). I found this great site and made one of these on Saturday, I even had all the supplies...way cool. I may need to buy some better lights for the sides but I think it will work out pretty great, and it was free (even better). On Saturday, Mike was at the church all day building a stage for the auditorium, so I had the whole day to myself...I got caught up on cleaning, organizing, laundry...almost got everything crossed off my list.

So I have been debating trading laptops with Ashley for some time now...I have an Apple Mac Book, and I have to say, I do not like it one bit. I have heard the saying "once you go Mac, you never go back," well I am going back!!!! We decided to trade and we are both in the process of deleting and saving our files to transfer to our new laptops. This is a better option for me, because I am just too old to learn new ways to work the computer! She is really happy with the trade off too, since she is getting a way better deal;D

I guess that has been enough random chit chat, huh? Now onto the card. I was happy to get an hour or so on Saturday to use my new set Rustic Branches by PTI. I made 2 cards with this set and another sympathy card for my BFF's sister (who lost her husband tragically last week). If you think of it...say a prayer for Marcia.

Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!

Supplies used (SU! unless noted): Rustic Branches (PTI); Kraft/Chocolate Chip/Whisper White cardstock; Chocolate Chip/Always Artichoke/Pure Poppy (PTI) cardstock; Pure Poppy grosgrain ribbon (PTI)

Hey,girlie! I love PTI stamps too! Unfortunately, the only one I have is the polka dot basics. Just haven't had the extra $ to buy what's on my wish list:( Have a great day!!
