Mini Card

Good late Sunday afternoon. A day to catch up on laundry, cleaning, etc. I still need to do the dishes and eat some dinner. I then plan to head to the hospital to visit my friend Shari for a little while. Haven't been there since Friday evening. Miss her.
Went to see my Mom yesterday. It was a little dicey the first leg of the trip but after the first ten miles the roads were OK. I talked real sweet to my car going over a bridge to stay straight because I could feel the wheels slipping and sliding. Whew - we made it across. The rest of the trip was fine. On the way home - I stopped in Madison and did a little shopping. Retail therapy does such wonderful things to your attitude. Not that I needed anything but when was that an excuse not to buy. I did get some of the new Tim Holtz die cuts for 5 1/2 inch card borders - want to try them soon.
Today's card is loosely based on the sketch at Taylored Expressions. I turned the sketch on it's side since I already had this bunny colored and wanted to use it. This grouping of paper from We R Memory Keepers is so springy that it is fun to use. I do wish I had some more of the words on this card but this was the last little bit of that particular piece of paper.
The second card is just a quick little card to put in the mail to my Mom this week. Her name is Bea so that is why I wanted to use this little bee. Of course, it has been sitting around uninked for quite some time and needed to be used.
Well I must close and do my dishes, eat some dinner and get ready to go to the hospital. Everyone have a wonderful evening.
