My New Favorite Quote

Am I the only one that sometimes feels a wee bit guilty spending an entire Saturday stamping?  Or spending two hours catching up on Google Reader?  Or maybe that's just me, in which case...awkward!  But maybe you feel a little twinge when you tell your DH "just 5 more minutes!" and then finally come out of your room two hours later (or if your DH is making you dinner while you type this blog post).  If so, this card is for you:

But you'll have to look with your eyes and not with your hands because this card is taking up permanent residence on my crafting desk.  Although to be truly stampy, I should have replaced "time" with "paper." ;)
A fun card to make-printed the quote using Love Ya Like A Sister font onto Echo Park paper, cut out and glued and/or popdotted onto the Echo Paper base.  Also added Eat Cake Graphic's Callie's Looking Down, because what card is not improved with a dog.  I even brought out the ol' Janome and did some straight stitching with a little zig-zag craziness near the corners because why not.

I hope everybody enjoys wasting some time this weekend!

Perfect quote, perfect card! You're right, this quote may become my new mantra. That Eliot guy, pretty smart. I will point out he has rather famous poems about cats, not dogs. :P But I really like Callie on this, too. Also love the zig-zag randomness!

Awesome card! I love the quote, and I love how it looks here! Can't remember the last time I saw you sew anything (have I ever seen it?)...

I'm off to disturb the universe. And eat a peach.

PS: only 2 hours on Reader? You can do better :)

HAHAHA, two hours is nothing! I do feel a wee bit guilty spending entire evenings on the computer but what other life do I have? LOL I love your card, Meg! The little dog and stitching is fabulous. Since you do it so well, I want to see more stitching from you!

Wow - there must be a lotta husbands that do the same head shaking like mine when I say "5 more minutes"

I said that to my husband just over an hour ago tonight!! Yup - I'm still in my room in front of the computer!!!

I love the sentiment on this card!!! Perfection. Maybe I'll print out a picture of it and put it on my desk!!! LOL

Love that stitching!!! I'm going to get a machine in the spring (I think). I keep waivering...do I want to stitch on cards...or not!
to be continued....
