more from the archives!

If you know me, you probably know that I really only stamp, colour, and make cards on the weekend! I just CAN'T find the energy to do it in the evenings because after I have worked all day and come home to make dinner, I just don't have the energy to start anything at 7 or 8pm. So when I do have a good weekend to get 'carding' done I try and make 4 cards just in case I don't have time the following weekend.

Well last weekend I was 'swamped' with plans...not necessarily fun plans but shuttling one of the boys from London to Chatham and then back to London. (it could have been worse though...hubby did the longer trek between Chatham and Hamilton twice!) Why this weekend? So they could all go to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit! CA-RA-ZY!!!! But they enjoyed themselves and unlike years prior when they were younger I do not have to 'live' with propaganda FROM every make of car on the planet! They were more 'selective' in what they brought home, and THEN took it back to school with them! BONUS!

Between the driving and errands and getting some sneak peek cards done for Emily to bring to CHA there was NO time left for anything else. If you haven't checked out any of the sneak peeks, you might just want to check out Emily's blog cause there is some REALLY cute stuff there! Personally, I am DYING to get my hands on the recipe cards and icons! OH my...I see a 2011 year long project in my horizon!

Now that I am done my whining about not having enough colouring time I'm gonna pull out THE LAST card from my archives. This is Mavis has a daisy and I coloured her up back in August just after getting the cast off my arm. YES, I have been holding on to it THAT long!

Although we are getting a thin blanket of snow here today, this card makes me dream of spring so although it is from the archives, it is bringing warmth to my kitchen table as I type this up!

Speaking of warmth...I should have a pair of tall chocolate brown uggs to encase my feet in warmth this time tomorrow! boots make me SO HAPPY!
