ENJOY HAIKU

Happy Labor Day! Oh, do I ever love three day weekends now that I'm a workin' girl! Drew has been out of town with a friend & family ... Allie has been on the go all weekend ... John, of course, is always willing to give me stampin' time! I got a whole lot of stampin' done on Saturday and Sunday ... today is reserved for household chores and errands that desperately need done.

Last night, I was able to play along with Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #55. I used the stamp set Enjoy Every Moment, and the new Haiku Designer Paper ... using the colors Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, So Saffron, and More Mustard. This card measures 6 1/2" x 3 1/4" which fits Stampin' Up! Small Open-End Envelopes. I used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line up the stamped So Saffron flower and the stamped Tangerine Tango "enjoy". A 1/2" circle was punched from the Haiku DP for the Build-A-Brad, and the layering of the "every moment" sentiment include the Designer Label Punch, 1" Circle Punch, and Word Window Punch ... along with More Mustard Brads and Paper Piercing.
