Good morning again! I hope you all enjoyed your week and will enjoy your weekend even more! It is garage sale weekend for us! I've already made $11 just by setting up with the garage door open - people love sales LOL! It starts this afternoon so wish me luck!! All proceeds go towards the building of the mammoth deck LOL! Then again, I have already spent $20 because I bought some fabulous throw cushions for our couch that a friend's friend was selling. There are 5 of us girls that are getting together in one location to sell everything.

Now didn't you need to know all that?? Eek - snoozeville! Let's talk about crafts....

I do have some great news - Christine at Practical Scrappers asked me to join their Senior Team. I have been on their Junior Team since February and I am please as punch with the "promotion." Thanks Christine!

This is card #5 this week - I am on a real role here!

I made this for friends who are having the worst luck, I hope this cheers them up. I apologize for the poor quality of this photo - I need to try again when I get home!
