Whirl{WIND} kind of day

It's not even 6:00PM and I am ready for bed!  Started my day off with an early morning, and very WINDY, run, finished up some projects I had started last night, went to watch my twins baseball game in the freezing cold WIND, came home and took advantage of the little mans nap time and made a couple cards...then me and my hubby took off for a little afternoon get away to the Tri-Cities while my momma stayed with the kiddos.  We had a nice lunch at Twigs, did a little shopping and just caught up on our lives without the interruptions from 3 little boys ;)  It's been a fun, busy and, did I mention, WINDY day!  My mom was kind enough to keep the boys for a few more hours so my hubby and I can enjoy a nice dinner out tonight to celebrate our anniversary since it was not possible earlier this week.  Two meals with just the two of us...that never happens!  Thanks Mom!
Before we head out, I took some time to clean up my craft space and took pictures of some of my creations from earlier today.  This one was inspired by the current color challenge over at Fab Friday.  I love these colors!
My Crumb Cake card stock has been feeling a little neglected lately...Sahara Sand took over for awhile.  And I love me some white craft ink on Crumb Cake, so that is how my card stared.  Add some fun DSP and a super cute stamp and...voila!

Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Patio Party DSP
Ink ~ Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White Craft
Stamp Sets ~ Make a Cake, Paper Pumpkin (Jots and Thoughts Try It Kit), Itty Bitties, Sweet Essentials
Other Supplies ~ Calypso Coral Bakers Twine

I stamped a row of the cute little butterflies from the Make a Cake set inside the card and added a few single butterflies (Itty Bitties) in the white polka dots on the DSP.  Quick and easy card and cute to boot!

My rest time is over...time to get ready for a date with my hubby!  I told him I feel like an old married couple going to dinner so early...I'm sure we'll be home before 8 and in bed by 9.  Either we're getting old or we are just too darn busy to stay out late anymore! 

Happy Stamping!
