Good Morning friends! I hope you're having a great week so far. I have to say that mine started out really bad. I was an emotional mess on Monday! But yesterday was such a fabulous day for me. My sister Karin sent me some birthday money and I had decided I was going to use that to get some much needed new dishes. I didn't find anything on Monday, but when I went out yesterday, I found the most beautiful dishes on clearance for $14.70 for each box. So I got an 8 piece setting for less than $35!! Then I found glasses that matched perfectly for $10. Then I when I got back home, I had an email from the job I had interviewed for... I really thought I hadn't got it. I still don't have it, but they've delayed their decision, so I may still have a chance!! AND THEN the nice UPS man showed up with my birthday present from my sister Theresa. She sent a Studio-in-a-Box. Something I've wanted for a really long time. She also sent me a Martha Stewart punch I wanted and the Cricut deep-cut housing and blade. What a great birthday... what a great day!!
And now I have a great sketch to share with you. This week we have the Pixie Dust Studio sponsoring, offering a prize of two digis to the winner. So here's the sketch Arlana has for us this week....
Fun, huh! And here's what I did with it...
Isn't that a cute image?! I love it. I so rarely do boy cards, so this was a really great opportunity. I used some of stash of decorative paper that I've been hoarding, so that earns me a gold star.
