Make it Monday with the Kraft Journal - Mon Amie

Happy Friday!  I've got two posts today - one for the Waltzingmouse Blog Party and this one for the Kraft Journal.  I try to do my crafting for a few hours at night to wind down - secretly maybe I am waiting up for the kids to get home so I can sleep better :)  The weather has been so nice here lately - and my days have been spent thinking of things I need to do to get the yard in order for the lazy days of summer.   I love sitting outside - spying on the birds and digging in the garden. 

The challenge this week at the Kraft Journal is to make a project that is kraft and red, white or blue.  I adore red with kraft so that was a no brainer for me.   I embossed some kraft card stock with a rose pattern and then lightly ran an ink pad over the top to bring out the design.  I topped it with a stamped label sentiment a big bow and some paper flowers.
I hope you are having a good day - and that you have an even better weekend!

I'm just curious, does your pup help you dig in the garden too? LOL. 2 hands and 4 paws could really get the work done a lot faster. :) Your Kraft with red and the embossing is gorgeous Jeanne. I always wondered when your crafty magic came alive. Now I know, while impatiently waiting for the kids to get home safely...me too!! :D
