Some People Add Such Joy to Life....

Happy Friday!!! I am so glad this week is over. Between going back to work, this crazy snow and cold, and my van......I am ready for the weekend! My van was fixed.......temporarily. The mechanic told me I need a new exhaust pipe. It has little holes in it, and he welded a bit of it and filled in the holes with some kind of cement putty. In the next 6 months or so, it will need to be fixed properly. Today, we got dumped with snow.....and apparently, tonight we are expecting some lake effect snow on top of the 6 or so inches we've already gotten! Ahhhhhh, such is life I guess. : )

And since I am such a gluten for punishment......I am starting a graduate course this Saturday. It is from 9-4 for six Saturdays. (You know I have nothing but time.......nothing but time.... LOL!) It is a course on using technology in the classroom. If I complete the class I get to keep a small 10 inch laptop computer loaded with Adobe and a few other programs.

On to my card! This is a sweet image from the Crafty Secret's Couple of Cuties set. I colored this little gal in with my Copics. The paper is Martha Stewart. The panel behind her was a plain colored card stock that I sprayed with an adhesive and sprinkled with glitter. (yep.....made my own glittered cardstock in the color I wanted!) I added a pretty Papertrey bow and a vintage button tied with floss. The sentiment was cut out using Spellbinder's tags.

Wish me luck on my class! It has been many years since I've gone to school. (The Spanish class didn't count....no tests, no homework!)

Have a fabulous weekend!

Ohhh, I am falling in love with those adorable Crafty Secrets girls, I've seen several of the stamp sets include a precious little lady in them and I am getting that "NEED" sensation, especially viewing creations like these!! Your colouring is gorgeous and I love the MS paper you've used, wonderful creation!!
Take Care,
