I Met Nichole Heady from PTI at a Maine Picnic!

First I want to thank Julie so much for taking all the time and effort to make this work!
How lucky I was to be able to meet Nichole today. We had a great time and I'll post all the cards that I swapped by Tuesday. But for now here is a few pictures I have from today...hope no one minds that they are on the net!

The Gang's all Here!

Here is my new friend Chris and Helen and ummmmm.....I know what wonderful card she made........ Karen...(Thanks Karen!) I am horrible with names but I can match up almost everyones card with their face....sorry folks just the way my mind I know trival information that really doesn't matter to anyone......the home we lived in 12 years ago had 36 cabinets and drawers in the kitchen.....don't ask me why I need to know that it is not like I'm going on any trivia show that is going to ask that question and my poor DH just looks at me and shakes his head and says "Why would you know that?"....and the truth....I don't know why! OK so I have just digressed and you probably got way too much information from me! LOL Nichole and PTI customers chatting away....

Sketch Card

This is a card that I whipped up this morning for a bridal shower that I was going to this afternoon for my dear friend Debbie. The shell stamp and gems are by Hero Arts and the other products are by PaperTrey Ink except the black card stock is from The Paper Cut. The amazing sketch I found this morning Taylor Expressions
this was one of the first cards that I have ever used a sketch for and it was so much fun!

Back at Last

So...sometimes life just gets busy and I don't take the time to smell the flowers or update my blog.

I should take lessons from Sirago! He knows how to take the time to smell the flowers!

Well the bedroom is finished and DH is thrilled! and I got a surprise too....a gift certificate for a full body massage, facial, manicure & pedicure too! I am saving it for when I hit the goal I've set for myself.

Well folks I have had a very interesting week .....learned about leaking oil tanks....when you need to call the DEP and when you don't! If you need that info you can pm me! All is well and it is under construction...LOL.....I am so thankful that it wasn't the middle of February and 40 below zero.

Jack will be home later so guess I better get the trash taken to the land fill and a few other things I want to get done. Here is to an excellent weekend and take time to smell the flowers!
