Saturday 4-17-2010



Good afternoon everyone - beautiful day in Wisconsin - but it is windy so there is a chill out there. I indulged in some dirty therapy - digging out the weeds in my flower beds. They are new flower beds so lots of weeds. The goal is to get one side done this week - I don't think that will be a problem. I got my errands run this morning so now I can relax at home the remainder of the week end - relax - now isn't that a mouthful. Who relaxes on a week end - too many things to do.
This morning I did get two cards made. The cards are based on two challenges. The sketch is from Die Cuts R Us (Tuesday sketch) and the Wednesday challenge from the Operation Write Home card blog is to make his and her general cards. This Smile tree stamp works so well and it can cover so many occasions.
