Enjoy!

I had such a pleasant surprise today......I got "facebooked" from a former student of mine from 1993. She asked if I remembered her......of course I did! That was my first year of teaching. It was a pretty memorable year because 2 months into school I fell down my basement stairs and broke my ankle. I had to have my 5th graders wheel me around the museum in a wheelchair! This little ten year old girl that I remember has grown into a beautiful woman. I have to admit, it does make me feel a wee bit old though! Still, I was so glad to hear from her.

Anyway, on to my card......I used the new Crafty Secret's Creative Scraps.....love these images! I used my Cricut to cut the scalloped card. I used my Nesties to cut the image and the scalloped circles behind it. I added a bright,orange,happy bow and button to finish it off! The sentiment was done with my Just Rite Times New Roman stamp.




*** Still hacking like a seal.......really need to find the time to get an X-ray. Should I be worried that I've literally had a cough for over 3 months? It is just now getting worse since this last cold I've had? Any doc's out there want to diagnose me and save me a trip? LOL!

I bought the Travel Scraps at my LSS recently. Can't wait to play. This is SO cute! Hmmm, I need to check my carts for this base with the scallops. Great idea.
Get the cough checked out!! :)
