Enjoying my mornings


Oh, it's so wonderful to have the freedom to sleep-in in the mornings....to be able to leisurely enjoy a cup of tea and watch the Today Show; sit at my craft table and not be disturbed until I am finished. Yes. This is how my mini vacation is shaping up to be. It's Monday, and I'm not at my desk at work. I got up early, today, and worked on this card. I enjoyed some toast, yogurt and tea for breakfast. Then, when I was finished with making my card, I went to the gym. No rushing about. No schedule. Just taking my time, and doing what I feel like doing, when I feel like doing it. The only thing on my calendar today is to take my son to his orthodontist appointment at 3:30. Otherwise, I'm just going to watch TV, and perhaps, make some more cards this evening.
Don't you love Cuttlebug embossing folders? I chose this particular one because it reminds me of a knit sweater. Thanks for stopping by, today!

Love this card! Oh my all the wonderful details are just so yummy! I love Boyd's bears! Something about a day that you don't have to rush around makes it heaven! Glad that you are having a great mini vacation!

Each and every little detail is perfect! Oh is this ever sweet. And you are so right about the Cuttlebug embossing folder. I never looked at the hounds tooth embossing folder in this light but you've just caused me to want this one too!

Your day sounds wonderfully perfect!

I really thought that the CB embossing was fabric-it's just perfect with the sweater bear!
