Sabbatical or Lazy?


Neither! LOL! I'm just really enjoying the summer and finding it hard to keep myself in my craft cave (as Jen )  would call it. Do any of you feel the same way? It amazes me how many of you are on DT and have all of these deadlines. I wonder how you do it. I find it so hard to be creative if I'm not feeling it, you know?

Anywho, I have had alot going on in the past two weeks. If I sound a slight more mature, well that's because I turned 31 this week. Or as I tell everyone else, I am 30 and holding. LOL!

I am here to share a card I made for the latest Wee Memories Challenge #59, where anything goes and you are supposed to free your creativity. Simple enough, I say! I decided to use this as an opportunity to make a card for my pops! He is so wonderful. I am very blessed to have such a fabulous Dad. Just recently we started going on father/daughter trips. Since he lives in Arkansas and I in NY, we find a destination to meet. We spend a few days shopping, seeing the sights and eating wonderful food. Last year we went to Branson, MO. This year who knows?

Thanks for stopping by and listening to my ramblings!
