Hi ya'll!

For some reason this didn't go live at 7am, like I scheduled it.  I guess Blogger wasn't in the mood to cooperate with me today. lol  I am excited as today is my Friday, and we get Monday off for the holiday.  That's a whole 4 days that I get to sleep in.  I'm also super excited because R and Hulk will be here tomorrow.  I cannot wait to see them.  I have to be honest, even though I'm independent and strong willed, this long distance thing is hard.  I miss him more and more each day.  I'm thankful that we do get to see each other about every other month though.  And fortunately, my daughter keeps me busy.  I am also happy to be creating regularly again.  That's another fantastic distraction.

So here is the next card I have to share with you.

I'm not sure I (personally) could get any more CAS.  Look at all of that crisp, clean, white space.  It was very difficult not to add more stuff to this.  I had to walk away and put my supplies up, before that happened. lol  I know exactly who will be receiving this card, very soon.  I hope they like it as much as I do. :-) 

I'm happy to participate in the following challenges.

The Card Concept #17: Photo Inspiration (Be Inspired)
The Pink Elephant #265: Anything Goes
CASology Week #110: Letter (I chose a monogram as my interpretation)
Pals Paper Arts #217: Sketch

I don't think I'll have much to post over the next few days.  I do hope everyone has a safe, and happy holiday weekend.

Stay crafty my friends!
