Happy Thursday!

Happy Thursday!!

How are you doing??  We are finally starting to feel okay!!  YEAH!  I hate to jinx it so I will stop talking about it now but hurray!!  ha

Yesterday I was excited because I got some happy mail from my friend Karla.  Happy mail for no reason other thank she is nice!! 

Look at what I got!!

Isn't it awesome??  I think I now have enough doilies to last me for a little while!!  I love it all!!!  Can't wait to start playing. 

The weather here is gotten so pretty the last couple of days.  It is supposed to be in the 80s today and sunny.  I really love spring.  We usually have such a short spring and then it jumps right into a super hot summer.   (Vegas = desert you know)  I am just trying to enjoy it while I've got it.

We have been seeing a million butterflies in my backyard. I have to show you a photo.

Yesterday I made a very Clean and Simple card using only scraps and stuff from my stash.  The papers were leftovers from the card I made the day before.  It came together so quickly.  I thought that this would be a great challenge to offer over at Sketches4all on my Card challenge so that is what I did!! 

What do you think??  I really like it. 

If you are interested you can go join in the challenge at S4A.  It is going on until April 11th and there will be a RAK. 

Look at my wacky son...

I was sitting at my desk and when I looked over at the chair in my office this is what I saw!  I'm not sure what he was doing.  Kids are so strange sometimes.  lol

Tomorrow I am getting my dogs groomed.  They need it!  I hope I remember to take them! LOL

Saturday my ds has a lacrosse game and it is about a 2 hour drive to get to the game.  So we are leave at 6am.  I'm not really looking forward to it.  I love to watch him play but getting up early is not something I enjoy.

My brother has been visiting us (that is him in the photo with my son) and he is going home on Monday.  (boo)   But my Mom is coming to visit on Wednesday!! LOL   Then on Saturday Spring Break starts for my kids.   So a busy week.

I've been taking the Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry class.  I'm loving it so far!!!  I will share some photos of things I've made another day since the ones I took are all blurry for some reason.  The class is a techniques class more than a projects class so we are learning all sorts of fun techniques and then I will just have to make something using these techniques! 

Okay, enough from me.....but before I go here are your reminders....

  1. I thought I recognized the stuff in that picture! displayed it so beautifully!

    Your son is too funny! I think he's sharing the dog's bed! You sure have a busy rest of the month!
    Hope you get a chance to post some pictures from the class you've been taking.
    Can't wait to see what new techniques you've learned!

  2. What a nice thing for Karla to do!!! I bet it was fun getting a surprise!!! Your card is pretty! I'll try and play along! I love that you share your kids' antics!! Sometimes, they make my day!--like today!

  3. Can't wait to see some of the techniques you are learning in T!m's Chemistry class...
    Looks like your son is doing a back flip onto the dog! Yup, kids are strange..but I'm sure it made sense to him, at least at the time! Gotta love 'em!! Great scrappy card, enjoy your new goodies.

  4. Hey Girl! I love your card made from scraps! Nice design too! Your son is so funny! My girls always do strange things like that! I am recovering from my appointment.... it was AWFUL!! I feel and look like I was hit with a Mac truck! I took off tomorrow because silly me thought I would be ok to go back to work and was miserable on Wednesday and Thursday, so I said I have got to stay home and recover on Friday! Not to mention I have not eaten food since Tuesday!! Liquid diets are the pits, so I am "rough" looking, hungry and tired LOL! I am a real joy to be around! I hope by Monday I will be back to myself and ready to do some crafting!

  5. What a nice RAK from your friend! And your card is so cute- love using up scraps! Oh, and thanks for the reminder to enter the CC challenge. That is on my list of things to do this weekend! Have a great weekend!

  6. Stacy what a fun card and fabulous that you used scraps!!
    LOL! about your son!!
    IKWYM about Spring ours are short too and our Summers are long but we get a breeze from the bay so its helps us keep cool.
