Count Your Blessings

Oh my gosh, has it really been two whole weeks since I have posted? School is busier that ever before and I come home exhausted. I have been reading a lot or should I say picking up the book and falling asleep! I did manage to finish Debbie Macomber's newest book, A Turn In The Road which was one of her best. I really enjoyed it. Just what I needed right now, a great light story.

Today we will celebrate Justin's 11th birthday. It seems like yesterday that this little guy and our fourth grandchild was born. Where or where do the years go? Justin, if you see this, stop growing up so fast!

Today's card is made from a Gina K set called Spring Basket. I colored it with my Copics and cut it out with Nestibilities. The ribbon I have had for years and I think it was purchased at Hobby Lobby. I was very happy with the result.

Until next time, Happy trails to you....

Thank You

Happy Saturday Peeps! What a week it has been. Well two weeks actually. I went back to work on August 1. We had some major remodeling done "over the summer" and when I walked in the door there were workmen everywhere and nothing was completed. I could not begin to get to my desk so I worked in the library the first week. This week was better in that I could get to my desk and I cleaned and cleaned only to come back every morning to another mess and lots and lots of dust. Then there were the parents who waited all summer to enroll their kids into school. Lots and lots of parents. I have been working late nights and lots of overtime trying to get ready. I am so tired I can hardly keep my eyes open. But now this Monday school begins so it should be much better soon. It is a good thing I made some cards ahead to showcase because I have not so much as looked at a stamp for over a week. This weeks card is made from the Papertrey Ink's anniversary set. The dp I used was in my stash. A super simple card. I hope you like it and will stop back next time.

Until next time... happy trails to you!
