i made a card

How was your weekend? Mine was very restful. We only left the house once, to run out and grab a quick dinner at Subway. We love Subway! I "considered" scrapping this weekend many times. I only manged to complete one card for my former neighbors back at Fort Bragg. They were my first real army friends, when I was a newlywed, stuck in North Carolina for a year all alone, when Josh came up on Iraq orders, and was gone all in 2 months time. Stressful, but I have always been very independent and this only showed me how strong I am. I cannot tell you how many times I was knocking on Jenny's door with any and every excuse for conversation. LOL!

I like this card, but I don't love it. I completely suck at cards, and I'm never happy with them. I hope Jenny and Adam like it.

In others news? Is anyone Eminem fans? I use to be obsessed with Eminem. I had all his CD's went to his concerts, which were fabulous! His new album comes out tomorrow. Its alright, but not as good as his older music, but I also thought the same thing about Kenny Chesney latest album, Lucky old sun. I was really disappointed with that one. I think my music taste is changing.

I was happy to see everyone enjoying my bad boy page. I really do love it. Therefore, I thought I would share the sketch I designed, before making the page. Oh but of course, the actually page doesn't look anything like the sketch, but oh well, the basic elements are there.

Have you seen ladies seem this beauty? OMG if it was 6 years ago, before I was married with a baby, I would so own this gorgeous piece of art. I love it.

Have a happy week everyone. I'm off to do some online window shopping. Later!

The card is great! What do you mean you suck at cards? I KNOW they will love it! Also love the sketch. Do mind sharing how you do your sketches? What software, site, etc? I've always wondered how that is done but I've never researched it. And yeah, I could so get into owning that purse too! lol! Hope you have a wonderful time cyber shopping!
