I hope you do not get bored with this post......

LOL!!!!! I have no idea where my week went :) It flew by and all I remember doing was State Testing at school and the eye doctor (not fun).

I have so much to tell you.....first off, I have lots of emails from you all and I am trying to get thru them by the end of this weekend. Everyone is so good to me :) And, I want to say I am Sorry and please don't get mad at me for this. The winners from the giveaways were boxed up and ready to be mailed, but I forgot to give them to my mom to mail them :( She saw them in my room this week and was shocked!! All she has been doing is work, work and more work. Debbi (her boss) found out the her cancer is back and she is going thru the giving up point. My mom is trying to help and making sure her spirits are up. She is at the hospital again and it is a few hours away, so it is hard to go see her. I did get a card mailed to her so I hope it will put a smile on her face real soon :) Opps...I started rambling, hehehe... the winners... all your goodies were mailed and be on the look out :)

I had a bit of time to play late last night and I wanted to try Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I wanted to try and make my own pattern paper, so I used PaperTrey's Anniversary set, that we rec'd in the mail this week. The small butterfly is from Ali's Wedding set over at PaperTrey. The turquoise cardstock is from Stampin Up, and the Berry Sorbet & White is from PaperTrey. The ribbon is also Berry Sorbet grosgrain ribbon.

So, since I made the pattern paper, I cut it up in different sizes. I still have pieces that I will be putting them into cards also. Here is the second card I made. All the supplies are the same as the first just a different arrangement. The ribbon for this card is a white sheer polka dot.

I will be back tomorrow, with more altered stuff and some more sketch challenges that I have been wanting to try :)

Love the card!

Sorry to hear about Debbi...we will keep her in our prayers!

It's that time of year that all the schools are testing! I know you've done well!

Enjoy your Sunday!

Dont' worry about us. School comes first. I am sure you did great, don't worry about it.

The cards are great and what a neat DP you made. I love it. Always fun to creat your own when you can't find what you want in your stash.

I will have Debbi in my prayers. I am so sorry to hear about the return. I would also like to get a card out to her. I will email you about the details.
