All You Need is Love

The last day of my vacation (not counting the weekend) is almost over.  I quickly found out I had to change the plans I had made for the day when I tried to get the car out of the garage & the door wouldn't open! It seems when I turned on the light in the garage, I blew the socket the light was in which in turn shorted out the electricty to the garage door opener.  So, instead of heading out I had to head back in & call an electrician. So, having thrown my schedule off for the day, I spent the rest of it doing much needed chores, like getting the oil changed.  Not an exciting week, but on the bright side, I didn't have to rush home in the middle of the day to let in the plumber, the electrician & get the cat bundled up for his vet trip. There is always a silver lining, right?

I only managed one card this afternoon & have decided to add it to the Penny Black at Allsorts challenge "All you need is love" which is so true! All you DO need is love & I'm so thankful for all the people who love me & all those I love.  This is a Penny Black stamp from the stamp set "Hugs" which is one I use a lot. I paper pieced the heart to match the background paper from K & Company. And of course, no card is complete without at least one Martha Stewart punch somewhere!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!  I'm going to visit my daughter & her family tomorrow so I probably won't get much done until Sunday.

Catch you later!
