End of the Weekend

Well, we weathered the severe weather just fine here. It all went north and south of us. It started out very dreary this morning, but things cleared off this afternoon. The wind is still blowing pretty hard, tho.

I started out this morning with the intention of cleaning house. I didn't get very far when the vacuum died. (Yay!!) So, an hour and a half and a hundred dollars later I have a new vacuum to be delivered at the end of the week. All this meant that I'd have to find something else to do today. (Darn!)

I ended up in my studio (surprise, surprise) and finished up a card that I had been working on. I found a tutorial on Pinterest, so I thought I'd give it a try. This is the second card I made and I tweaked the measurements on this one. This is the front.

This is with the front folded down.

And this is with the front folded up.

It took quite a lot of paper, but I think I turned out really good! It would make a great Mother's Day card.

Other than that I have not gotten much accomplished today. Oh, I did get a little bit done outside this evening. I thinned my lettuce and got enough for a little salad. My first harvest! Looks yummy!!

Well, tomorrow I'll be headed back to work. Vacation's over, but it sure was fun!
