Smile........It's Friday....

Normally I revel in the fact that today is Friday and tomorrow starts the weekend.  But for me this just means I am one day closer to going back to work.  

Let the craziness begin.

I love my job, love the people I work with, and love my students, but as I have mentioned before it's the mornings that kill me.  Trying to get everyone out the door on time is a challenge! I am sure once I do it  for a week or so will get me right back in the swing of things!   ;) 
So before my whirlwind starts I am posting a card that I think is peaceful.
 Think "Zen." 
I loved creating this card using an image from Crafty Secrets because I got to color with my Inktense pencils, listen to music, and drift off in my own little world.  
I wanted the flower to stand out here, so I used lots of white layers with a subtle embossing for texture.  I added a sentiment on vellum, and adhered a few sequins here and there. 
Kyle starts school on Monday, so this weekend we are spending a bit of time as a family.  We are spending Sunday at the Arlington Race Course. Never too young to start  "bettin' on the ponies," right? ;) Cort loves horses.  Many years ago she used to ride horses at a special therapeutic riding center. I am sure it will be a fun day and the weather is supposed to be beautiful.
Have a great weekend my friends!
