Is it the weekend yet???

So, I know it's not the weekend yet. :( I just can't help being a bit anxious! I am in high hopes that my new hero, the computer tech, will bring my desktop back to me all fixed and working good as new, or maybe a new computer with my old 'brain' in it.... either way, I am so ready to have my own machine back! Thank you so much, Melissa, if you are reading, for loaning me your retired laptop - I would have been in the looney bin without e-mail!

The cards posted above were entered into contests at Stamp TV this week. I used the GKD Spring Florals set, and colored with pencils and LOMS. The challenge for the first card required the use of glitter. I remembered a card that my BSFF Shirley helped me make in a workshop several years ago, and cased the idea. I simply added a strip of red line tape to the bottom of the card, sprinkled blue glitter, and voila! The flowers and stems were also touched with a gelly roll starburst pen for some sparkle above. The card opens like a regular card in addition to the little flap opening.

The second card was a sketch challenge. I used the GKD Hope set, colored with pencils and LOMS, cut out the butterfly, sprayed with Glimmer Mist, and adhered with a 3-d dot. The pearl flourish is from ZVA, and was in my blog candy box from Chris Olsen that I posted last week (thank you Chris - I love these flourishes!!!).

On the home front....I am about halfway finished with the upper cabinets in the kitchen. I spent the morning removing the center panels in 2 of 4 doors that are in a pass through cabinet. I am planning to put some sort of glass center in, replacing the wood. Again, I didn't take before pics - what a knucklehead I can be sometimes! Anyway, as I don't have a lot of places to 'spread out' into, it's slow going, but it is going, and is looking nicer!

DH has follow up visit with doc tomorrow, am looking forward to hearing what the good doc has to say.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I leave you with a little food for thought (I know Lisa is waiting for more of these!!!)...

Have you ever noticed that after Monday (M) and Tuesday (T), the rest of the week is WTF???

Lol.... I knew you'd smile!

Blessings and hugs - Patti J.
