Get Well Soon

Just popping in on a Saturday! I don't usually post on weekends, but sometimes I just can't stay away! We have a fun weekend planned. I'm helping McArthur with a photography session that will pretty much last all day long. I'm going to play photographer, model, stylist, and assistant! We'll see how good of a job I do at wearing so many different hats! I'm looking forward to spending the day doing something fun and creative that is not necessarily card making. Now, don't get me wrong, I love making cards, but I've made about 12 cards in the past 24 hours, all for DT requirements, so I just need to step away for a tiny bit. I'm sure I'll be back at my usual spot on Sunday night!

Don't forget to stop by Embellish! There's a new challenge posted with a new sponsor...Clear and Simple Stamps!

Enjoy your long weekend! Thanks for your visit.
