I Love Saturdays, Don't you?!

So glad it's Saturday! I've just finished giving my craft space a good cleaning and was able to make a couple of cards. One I don't like and one I do. There are big storms coming soon, so I'll make this fast. I worry about the computer being on during a storm.

I used the Long Stem Flowers stamp for this card. Felt like coloring today. I like the way it turned out. I thought it would be fun to add some white dots to the poppies and the punched butterflies. I found some fun papers to go along with the poppies and the sentiment is one of my favorites. It's from the Hero Arts Anytime Messages set.



I need to run out to the deck to pull the flower pots off to the side and batten down the patio furniture! Just heard this storm could get real bad! Lots of wind, rotation in the sky and golf ball-size hail! Yikes!

Hope your Saturday is going well! Thanks for the visit!
