Hostess with the Mostest

Happy Friday eve! I need the weekend like you would not believe...been working nonstop days from 7:30 a.m. 'til 9:30 or 10:00 at night, and I am exhausted. If I had the time, I'd be counting down the days to summer!

I've got a quick card for you that I whipped up a few days ago. I played along with the Etsy Inspired challenge. This week's shop is Handmade Whimzy, and I chose this apron as my inspiration.




I also played with this week's sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You and flipped it sideways to work for me. I pulled out some old American Crafts papers and my Chatterbox stamps from Practicing Creativity Designs.

I made this one for my sister...she hosted a bunch of family at her vacation home over Labor Day weekend, so I needed to get a thank you out to her. Think she'll like it?

Stamps: Chatterbox (Practicing Creativity Designs)
Paper: Hawaiian Shores, PTI white, American Crafts pp
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black
Accessories: PTI ribbon
