Have Yourself.. a happy little Friday!


And all day long, your troubles will be far aaaaaaaaaa-way........

Yes, indeed. Far, far, away! Like this morning, when I accidentally backed my car into my husband's work truck... *sob* when the fog was as thick as pea soup and my head was stuck on getting kids to school.... and he left the truck PARKED in the wrong spot! {Lol - sort of..}

But, then, I made a card. Now EVERYTHING seems much better!


....In my happy little scene, where the snow flakes taste like cotton candy as they alight upon your tongue... And snowmen give hugs and feel fluffy like downy fleece.... {Yeah, yeah! Go on!} And colors like this, from the wonderful COLOR THROWDOWN gals, INSPIRE!



Oooooowww! It's just magic, this thing we do with paper, and ink and ribbons-a-plenty! Even a little FLOCKING can really cheer a girl up! *wink*wink*



I, cheerfully, incorporated the CARD PATTERNS sketch, once again! Just because it was so fun the first time, and I love it!





So there it is - MY happy source! You n' me and all the beautiful paper, stamps, doo-dads and this great big beautiful blog-o-sphere to share TOGETHER!

{Honestly, this euphoria is REAL! - Card crafting is THAT good! tee hee}

Woo! Cute card!!! You are the sketchin' queen!! And color queen!

OK, about that pea soup... DANG! OUCH! And husbands that park their cars in the wrong spots really should know better.. I mean really... it's like those kids who always parked their bikes in the wrong spot - and wonder why they get ran over!

Smooches!

FABULOUS card my sweet! That sketch had me stumped but you have worked wonders with it not once, but twice!
Bad news blues about the incident with your car and your husband's work truck - I am sure that truck just rushed right at you and you just couldn't avoid it right? Huh, huh... thought so. Its just so true that there is nothing like a little crafting to lighten one's heart. Hugs to you, Jo x
