Keep Calm and ........ On

Happy Tuesday.  The weeks just seem to be going faster and faster.  I spent a good part of Saturday evening and Sunday playing in my pink castle.  Basically I was avoiding what I really needed to do like housework and packing and even cooking supper.  Finally about 7:30pm Saturday evening my hubby asked if we were having supper that night ~ yes, of course, what time is it ~ when he told me I was shocked I had lost track of time and we ended up with frozen pizza ~ LOL!!! And, before you ask, yes, I do have a clock in that room. 

I usually buy my scrap supplies with a purpose in mind.  Most of the things on the card I am sharing today were bought "just because I liked them."  And what's cool about it ~ they go great together.  The card is 6 x 6 and Little Ellie is paper pieced.  The word "knit" can be interchanged with "draw, sew, paint, craft" or the traditional "carry" making it a fun and versatile stamp.
