{ Has anyone seen Spring? Anyone? }

This is getting, just plain freakin' ridiculous!!! The past 3 or 4 days have been a mix of snow, rain and bloody cold weather!! This is June!! You know...sun...warmth...sun...warmth...remember that? Not...everyone run for your lives and cover those flowers before they all die!!! We took the kids to Calaway park for my hubby's work annual Family Picnic. It was freazing!! Some people were wearing their winter coats, gloves, hats...now that is just wrong! But it was still a good day. Our oldest went on the 'Big' RollerCoaster for the very first time and LOVED it! She went on twice and has now decided that she only wants to do the 'adult' rides from now on. ;0)

I am slowly healing from my surgery. I must admit though...this one was much tougher than I was expecting, but I am getting there. I took off my steri-strips yesterday and was quite surprised at the size of some of my incisions! 2 are about 1/4" and 2 are 1"+. I guess that would explain why those two were so much more ouchie than the other two! I am heading back to work tomorrow though. So life is starting to get back to normal.

I have not managed to make it down to my stamproom yet, but I am planning on doing that today. This week I found a couple of 'new to me' sites. The first I found through Christine. I am sure EVERYONE else on the planet knows this one, but it was new to me... PC Crafters. I must admit that many of the images are not my cup of tea, but there are MANY more that are. I love that many images can be printed off in black and white and colored as a Digi image. But I also like that some are not...makes for a quick image. You will be seeing some PC Crafter images soon! ;0)

Another great site I found was Whimsie Doodles. There are only a handful of digi images up right now, but can't wait for more to come. I am a HUGH turtle lover, so I am so in love with these cute images. You can download a free image, so that is what I will be playing with today. I will definitely be going back for the others...very soon!


I will leave you with an old creation I did a few months ago. This was a card I made for my Nephews Bday. He's not a skater, but it was the only 'boyish' image that I had on hand. ;0) I was quite happy with the way this one turned out. Simple yet still a happy creation.

Speaking from experience - the scars will fade and won't look as bad as they do now!

At least you know next trip to Disney Land you'll have more fun with Em!! Can't wait to hear it from her!

Hope you had a good time at Copic's tonight!
