What a day!

With Sympathy

sympathy2Pat, one of my customers, sent me a card using these colors and I just loved it so I set out to make one for myself.  It’s hard to tell on the picture but it’s an olive green, lighter olive green, and then some cream too!  Nice and Simple-just the way I like them.

Well it’s been quite a day…I feel like I accomplished nothing but worked all day.  We started off cleaning the house and only got the second floor done…hence nothing complete I still have the first floor to clean in the morning.  Went truck shopping (our truck has 371,000 miles on it and yes I didn’t make a typo) so we keep thinking it is going to stop one of these days…didn’t find a truck…hence that’s not done.  Got home to try and get some of my orders out…ran out of time so I headed to town to get my niece from school.  Hence no orders got out. I had to pick her up at 2:35 but she had a dentist appointment at 4:30 so what’s a girl  to do with a little time?  Yep, go shopping!  So thanks to my good friend Luanne Erickson I’m the proud owner of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.  Can’t wait to start using it.

With Sympathy

Whew, it’s a chilly willy morning here in Green Bay!  Fall is here I believe.  Maybe I should be working on fall cards?!  Here’s a cute easy sympathy card…we have needed our fair share of these this year. Our dear 90 year old friend passed away recently.  We lived with her for a short time when we moved here to Green Bay…she opened her home and hearts to us and we will always remember her with love.
