Happy Tuesday! I'm meeting my good friend (who happens to be my boss!) for lunch today. I'm looking forward to it ..... I enjoy spending time with Leanne .... we always end up laughing half the time!! Plus, I'm nervous about my dentist appointment tomorrow morning. I have been a bad, bad girl. It's been about 4 years since I was at the dentist. GULP! There's a LOT of work to be done. My teeth have always been very straight and looked nice. However, they are very soft and tight together....which means I get cavities very easily. Fun!! Wish me luck, please!!

Anyway... on to the card, the real reason your visiting today. haha!! I made this card back in February using PTI's Boards and Beams set. LOVE this set. Of course, I love all of my PTI sets ...and the ones I don't own yet, too!! Bad thing about not posting right away....I can't remember who I made this for. Isn't that horrible?!?! When you send out about 15 or more cards a month, it gets difficult to remember who each one was for. Anyone else have that problem? I started keeping a small notebook in my stamp room, right next to the postage stamps. Whenever I mail a card, I write down the date and the person who I'm sending it to and why. For example, today I mailed a card to my Grandmother-in-Law.... so in my notebook I wrote, "3/30/09 - MomMom Betty - Birthday". I also sent a sympathy card to a co-worker....so I wrote, "3/30/09 - Jake Lamb, KCDL - Sympathy". Make sense?

The card is pretty self-explanatory. I used a sponge dauber on the trees, after I colored in the leaves. I love how the windows look lit up. This idea came from many creations I've seen on SCS. Gotta love that site!!

Thanx for visiting! Come back soon!!
