Thanks...for Everything

I'm trying to get in the swing of things after spring break. I thought I might catch up on things over break; finish painting the trim in two of the kids' bedroooms, clean the kitchen appliances, maybe relax a bit, visit with friends, spend a day at Starved Rock or go to a movie.

Instead, we took Justin up to Northfield, Minnesota to visit St. Olaf College. They had a Junior Preview Day. Since we were driving 6 hours each way, we decided to take in as much of the college as we could and also attended a band concert, 3 choir rehearsals, orchestra rehearsal, jazz band rehearsal, percussion ensemble rehearsal and a music theory class. We also toured the campus and music building and ate lunch in the caf. Three days later, we arrived home. :)

Needless to say, the appliances still need a good cleaning and the paint trim isn't done. Maybe I'll get to them over summer break. lol

I did find a couple of hours to stamp. Yeah! This simple thank you is for the gals at Paper Trey Ink. It hardly seems like enough for the wonderful gift they have given me in "a year of free stamps", but it's from the heart.

The Violet stamp set is beautiful! I so enjoy coloring the big blooms and leaves with my Copics! Looking forward to spending more time with it soon!

Blessings~ Patti

I think this turned out adorable! Anyone would be lucky to have a card by you and even luckier when it was from the heart. I am glad you enjoyed your campus visit.
Hugs :)

Even though you didn't spend your spring break as you'd expected, it sounds like it was time well spent...and that you probably need a break to recover from your break! lol

Your violet card is beautiful, Patti! I love the soft colors, and I have no doubt that the ladies at PTI will be so appreciative that you thought to send them a card with your new goodies. ;)

Thank you for your Easter wishes and wishing you and yours a blessed Easter as well.
