So glad it's Saturday!

Good morning! It's the next-to-last morning of the Week of Peeks at 2RedBananas. Today Maraya, Jeanette, Jami and I are sneak peeking adorable sets called Louie and Louie Too! These two sets will be favorites for our family! With a husband named Patrick and a son Matthew Patrick, celebrating St. Patrick's Day is a must, and this cute little leprechaun is a fun way to start! I'm happy that *for once* I'm actually ahead of schedule with a card...and it's not even March *yet!*

I stamped Louie in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored him with prismas and baby oil. (It works best to start with the highlight color behind the image and then work your way forward). I gave his gold a bit of At You Spica sparkle. The sentiment was inked with marker (these words are actually in the center of a clover leaf) and stamped onto the corner of the designer paper. I added a layered knot and some Basic Grey buttons as accents.

I have had to laugh this week! All my friends who work outside the home roll their eyes when I say I'm busy and working deadlines...I'm *only* a SAHM but I think my schedule this week rivaled any one of my working counterparts! I am SO glad it's Saturday! Finally there is no play practice to chauffeur to, no music lessons, no volunteer responsibilities, nowhere to be...I'm ready to stay in pj's all morning! I hope you have a happy Saturday!
