For You

Good Morning to you! I'm so glad you stopped by! I'd like to share a card that I made using a sketch for my Yahoo group. I'm on the sketch team for the Create-A-Card group and we only have two more weeks left until we get a break for the holidays. I so enjoy the team and the sketches but am ready for a little break as I just can't seem to get everything accomplished and with the holidays coming I'm sure it will only get worse. As hard as I try to get ahead it just doesn't happen for me. You know I think I should just realize that and move on - I mean why dwell...we aren't all the same and I guess being ahead of the game just isn't me!

Here is the sketch which I LOVE - very easy and can be used over and over again. I originally thought I'd put a button where the circle is but it didn't work with my image. I have another habit where I think the sentiment has to go on the front of the card - this I KNOW stems from the fact that most of the time I just make a card front not the actual card. Oh well...


Here's my card. I thought this could be used for Christmas or even a birthday that happens in December.

A little while ago I picked up a set of Penny Black stamps. I don't have very many of them but love what I've seen. When I saw this set of little critters I knew it needed to go into my collection. Whatcha think?

Today is a Preschool day - the job is going good and I enjoy the little ones. I don't enjoy waking up early or having to get out of my pj's but oh those are the sacrifices we have to make in order to pay the bills! Hope your Tuesday is a good one!! See ya tomorrow for Flutter By Wednesday!

I hear ya on getting out of bed and dressed...I love my Monday's when I'm off and just have to get my kid's out the door and then curl back into my warm, cozy house! It went down to 0*C here last night!
