Friday was a very interesting day to say the least! My son and his girlfriend had asked a week ago if I'd make a card for each of them, they needed going away cards for people leaving each of their work places, and they were leaving at the end of the month, no problem. What I forgot is that the two kids were leaving for vacation and their last day was ... yes you guessed it Friday. Then a friend was leaving for a 60th birthday at 3:00 AND I still wanted to make 3 challenge cards for the Catch a Bug Christmas in July challenge. So this is the first card I made and raced it to Sam's place by 1:00, raced home and started on the birthday card. My friend came at 3:15 to pick it up, 5 minutes after I finished it. When she left I worked on the last card and it was done just before I had to leave to pick up another son from work. Talk about a deadline, lol! Now I had the whole night to work on the three Bugaboo cards but I was too tired to do them, oh well. Next Year! I love my kids, lol! I've entered this into:
