Never more than a thought away....

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I've been somewhat mia for a couple of days as the weather continued to be gorgeous here (plus 15 celsius!) and it is March break and we had a fundraiser at work today/tonight and I am packing my hubby and boys off to the Big Nickel to visit with family for along weekend! Will I miss them - ummm, the correct answer is yes..........but you know, I can already feel the quiet starting to descend.........and ummm, I really like it. My hubby works mostly evenings and weekends and often in the daytime too - so it is often just me and the boys - so, this is some much sought after quiet time for moi and I'm not ashamed to say I am going to take full advantage! Having said that, I do have to do some paperwork relating to taxes and the family business which is always fun of course, but I figure I have three full days plus a half day tomorrow - so if I spend maybe 60-90 mins each day, that oughta do it and the rest can be PLAYTIME!

Okay, so I meant for this to be quick as there is still laundry and packing to finish - I guess I am a little geared up for the coming weekend!

The sketch is from Friday Sketchers and I did make a similar card a few weeks back. I decided to continue the stitching on the inside too. I really enjoyed working with these colors. I am entering this one in the challenge at Quirky Crafters - they are looking for buttons!

Last but not least, I have some exciting news to share, but I have to wait a few more days.....I will keep you posted!
Thanks for stopping by,
Shanna :)
