Friday, Hi!

Finally Friday...thank goodness!  This has been the first full week of summer break and it's always an adjustment to have all 3 boys home all day.  We had a bit of a scare yesterday when one of my twins, Hunter, got his pinkie finger slammed in a closet door by his little brother, Owen.  Hunter was screaming his fool head off in pain and Aidan, his twin bother, was screaming his fool head off because he was certain Hunter's finger got cut off.  And all Owen could do was look at me and say "uh-oh"...ugh!  After I managed to settle everyone down and made sure Hunter's finger was NOT cut off, I did discover that his finger nail was split in half and was pretty sure the tip of his finger was broken.  I knew there was nothing that could be done for a broken finger tip, but I wasn't sure what to do about the nail, so I called my hubby to see what he thought.  His crew just happened to be in the neighborhood checking fire hydrants, so they stopped by to check it out.  A visit from Daddy at home on the fire truck or ambulance is always a treat, so the hurt finger was quickly wrapped up and splinted and all were happy again. 
Needless to say, it was kind of a crazy, stressful afternoon and I was happy to escape to my crafting room last night.  I had a huge mess to clean up after finishing a few projects I had been working on, so I didn't get any stamping done, but I did bright and early this morning.
I combined the Hand Stamped Sentiments sketch challenge with the Friday Mashup challenge...
I was happy to put another new set to use for these challenges!
Supplies Used:
Paper ~ Crumb Cake, Pacific Point, Whisper White, Summer Starfruit, Brights DSP Stack
Ink ~ Summer Starfruit, Pacific Point
Stamp Set ~ Regarding Dahlias
Other Supplies ~ Aqua Painter
It felt good to create such a simple card after wrapping up some more detailed and time consuming projects!  It was fun to use the Triple Time Technique in a bit of a different way.  And I LOVE these colors together!
Here's to hoping for a more uneventful day today and a great weekend for all!  I'm hoping to {finally} get a good start on my Convention swaps this weekend!
Happy Stamping

  4. Glad you're little guy is ok! Your story reminds me one my mom tells of when she fell off a wagon with her cousins and cut her knee open. Her one cousin carried a kitten all the way to the hospital with them and kept asking if she was going to die, lol! I'm sure there was a lot of screaming there too :-) Is your hubs a fireman? My dad and step dad both retired after many years as firemen! The card is gorgeous! I love the bold blue! Thanks for playing at HSS!
