FOR A FRIEND

Hi all!! Thanks for your sweet comments yesterday on my mojo, or lack thereof - LOL! I think some of you are right, I am TIRED!! But, I am starting to get used to my sleep deprivation and even have gotten back on some semblance of a normal schedule! And, I did stamp last night, which made me happy! I was inspired by my new catty that came in the mail yesterday - WHOOHOO!!! There are some uber cool things in this new one so if anyone is interested and needs one, drop me an email! The catty is free from me to you - you only have to pay $6 for the shipping. And, if you are local, let me know and we can hook up and I will get you one! I used new schtuff from the catty to make this card, aren't those little birdies cute??!! And, I am lovin' the new dsp in this one - ack, I want it all!! This card is pretty simple but I am thinking of using it in an upcoming workshop so it needed to be *wink*. Purple is not a color I use very often - I don't really like it, but it works here, don't you think? So anyway, off to do laundry and hopefully fit some stamping time in as well as blurf! Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by - I appreciate YOU!

That's funny you would mention a lack of mojo....cause that's EXACTLY how I'm feeling ! I stamped last night and wondered why I bothered cause I felt completely uncreative ! Must be the time of year :) I love what you did today and I agree....the new stuff is AMAZING in the catalogue !!! I also wanted to congratulate you on your newest addition ! I'm so proud of you...from one fellow dog rescuer to another....way to go !!! He's so cute and I know your tired but he'll be worth it !!

Love ya & miss ya !!!
