Rain stopped play....

I am planning a two week vacation at the beginning of June. In some countries, a two week vacation isn't that big a deal, but here in the US it's almost unheard of and it requires a certain amount of planning to make sure the day job is all taken care of during my LONG absence, so I have been scurrying around like a mad creature trying to fit everything in. It hasn't left much time for crafting, blogging or anything else actually, but on Sunday I did find some time to make a card for the newest addition to an old friends family. Then I took the picture, edited it and stopped to make dinner, planning to blog, blurf and generally catch up with everyone after that. There was my mistake! During the hour I did dinner, the Florida weather stepped in and a storm of great severity rolled over us. Fellow Floridians will know that severe thunderstorms can fry computers so I switched them all off and played Tetris on the Wii instead. My DH and I used to LOVE Tetris so when I got an e-mail from Nintendo letting me know "Tetris Party" was available for download, you know I was all over that. Apparently you can also play a balance board version of it - haven't tried it yet but it sounds very interesting don't you think?

Your coloring is phenomenal and look at how he's like a flip of your little avatar! I wish you the best vacation you can possibly have, all too familiar with that last minute (week long) scurry before heading out of town.

Lovely card Kay, did you still have enough of the stamped images?

Iam making your paper wreath up, meeting Frances in Brechin June 7th on my way back from SU field training in Glasgow.
She has the Halloween mini book, she thought it was smart.
