Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Looking Forward to a Lovely Spring Weekend

I've just posted this week's challenge at
I found this lovely frame and my challenge to you this week is to
'Frame It'. It's your choice of what to frame.
Here is how I filled my frame.

Squigglefly has gotten an early start today with their NEW RELEASES.
And, they are unveiling their new INSIDE-OUT stamps. Take a
look at what Squigglefly has waiting for you.

This is a card that I made using one of the fun images from
Lauretta See Digital Stamps. Lauretta also has a fun new
group on I Did It Creations. Lauretta's group has a Paper Piecing
challenge going on right now. She even gives you a freebie for the challenge and a
tutorial on her version of Paper Piecing.

I made this card for I Did It Creations
Robyn designed a wonderful sketch for us to use.
Pink, Yellow, Orange, Red

This is my completed sneak peak card from yesterday. When I first saw
this image I envisioned bright colors and bling. How fortunate that my pots
of glitter had arrived from CowTown Stamps. Laurel has a big
sale going on in her $1 Overstock section. There is glitter everywhere
but you can't see it. Darn. This is really bright and sparkly. I love how
this turned out.

Our big Grand Opening Meet the Members Party is
still going strong. Won't you join us at I Did It Creations.

My big news of the day is about my son Michael. He is back
among the EMPLOYED. The brake shop where he worked
for over 20 years closed down when the bottom first
dropped out of the economy. Michael was on his 3rd
round of unemployment benefits. Finally, on Monday,
he starts his new job. He will be running a huge lathe in
a place that makes jet parts in Reno, NV. Yay Michael!

I hope you have a wonderful Spring day.
