A Quick Preview of the Year Ahead ...

Pin It


Happy Tuesday, hoarding card-makers!

I ♥ the 'Order of the Opus Gluei' gals and their humorous take on ... everything! Today's card project was created for the Gluei's "Seasonal Icons" challenge. If you're not familiar with the Opus Gluei challenge blog, you can check 'em out HERE.

After spending an hour and a half trying to incorporate the theme of 'four seasons' into one CAS card, I finally gave up and took the easy way out ... and created a card using "The Seasons" stamp set by Hero Arts.

Can we shorthand it? Here's the highlights of the upcoming year:

For the ginormous view of my card, clicky on the photo ... and for all the exciting product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

Sooooooooo, yesterday I was hangin' out with Sheila when Reid-the-Wild-Child came home from school.

Stuffed in his lunchbox was a note from the Principal, advising all parents of an upcoming Drug Abuse Resistance Eduction program.

"Reid, do you understand what this is all about? Do you have any questions?" Sheila asked.

"No, I know: they're gonna teach us to stay away from cigarettes, beer, and marinara."

Thanks so much for stopping by ... hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!

~Hugs,
