Sleep In Day

I love Wednesday's it's sleep in day at our house. My daughter's school starts an hour late every Wednesday, so we take advantage of it! I also love Wednesday's because I get to post my take on this weeks sketch #48 at Sketch This: Cards!. This time I spiced things up a little with some glitter, a girl can never have too much glitter! I am having so much fun designing for Sketch This.
Thanks for all your sweet comments!

Totally Off Topic


This is totally off topic, but I thought I would share, I cut 5" off my hair yesterday!!! Augh! I really liked my long hair it was really versatile,ponytail,bun... and I think I look younger with long hair. Oh well it's only hair it grows back right! Well, I thought I needed a change so I went for the whole kit and caboodle with a cut & color. Yes I'm only 32 and color my hair. I've been salt & pepper grey since I was 20:) So here is the before and after pics, just quick Photobooth head shots.
I love before and after pics!

Spring Fever

Garden Party Treat Bag

Cherish Family Always Card

Good Morning, It's cold and snowy here in Colorado. Spring in Colorado is so unpredictable one day it's 70 the next we have 4" of snow. I'm ready for the 70's again so I can work in my garden, play more golf and get some sun on my face. I think I'm suffering from Spring Fever. To bring back the warm Spring feeling here is the rest of my work for MCS March kit.

Well, I think my hubby is pretty hot, he's my "FUI-FUI" man!

I have some yummy BLOG CANDY to give away. All of the candy is male oriented of course. If you link a picture of your "FUI-FUI" man in the comments of this post. I will pick the top 10 and draw the winner from there. This is to honor our "FUI-FUI" men, it could be your husband, father, grandfather, uncle, brother... just link those great pics, lets have some fun. Show off your "FUI-FUI" man!! I will draw Sunday night and post the winner on Monday.
