thanks friend

I forgot to share this card!  This is one of the cards I made for the auction back in March.
the kraft tag was cut with my cricut, the stamp is from the dollar bin at Michaels.  I had fun giving it dimension with pop dots.  The pattern paper is all Basic Grey.
Dinner last night was a success!  Everyone LOVED the turkey meatloaf (I actually make them in muffin tins so that they don't take as long to bake, a little secret I learned from Rachel Ray)

Tonight we get to honor my oldest boy with Academic night--he got straight A's for the WHOLE school year--proud mama--oh yes! :)  AND I just got the letter letting me know that he will not only be in ALP reading, but also math (it's advanced) I'm glad because he gets bored in the regular class room and this will make him stretch more.

Today I ran over to Lowes for some Bird mesh, the birds are eating ALL of my new flowers that I planted a few weeks ago.  I've seen them in my flower pots marching around like the own the place, afterward my flowers are munched on.  At first I thought it was the dogs because my schnauzer had some flower petals in her beard, she was probably smelling the birds!  I sure hope this works, I would like to fill in some spots back there with the Lantana I planted.

Tonight I am trying a new recipe and I will let you know how that goes.  I know, all these new recipes--i get bored!  Thanks for stopping by!
