Sorry, I've been Neglecting the Craft Room

I'm sorry this week has been so quiet. I haven't spent much time in my craft room--too much has been going on. I had a very nice weekend with my honey. He usually works every weekend at his second job, but he finally quit so we took advantage and went to my parent's cabin at Innsbrook.

We took off early on Friday and headed out of town. We got settled in and relaxed/cooled off at the pool for a few hours. Then we had a VERY nice dinner--pan seared halibut with watermelon salsa (yummmmm!) and a nice bottle of wine.

We spent the rest of the weekend relaxing, BBQing, and even spent some time with my brother, sister in law, and the kids. It was a great time.

Once we got back home I tried to get into the craft room, but it's been hard. I got a new 160GB iPod for an early birthday present and so that has become a new obsession for now. I did manage to make a quick card for the weekly challenge at PTI. We had a sketch to follow and were supposed to use a PTI set that had yet to see ink. That was easy because I had just received my new goodies on Monday so they qualified. This isn't my best card-making effort, but it came together in the little time I had available.

My mom has requested that I make two birthday cards for her (a 90th and a 75th) for some ladies from her church. I have at least a week to make them so I'm sure I'll come up with something. I'll be sure to post once I have them completed.

Thanks for coming by. Have a great rest of today.
