*Gotta Love Friday*

I think Friday is probably my favourite day of the week. Sure, the alarm clock still goes off, but there is this promise that things will be different for a few days... more relaxed, no real schedule. Friday is anticipation of things to come.

Unfortunately, this week, the alarm clock will be going off on Saturday morning. An hour or so later than usual, but still... we have to be at Alex's school for 9:30 on Saturday morning to do a bottle drive to raise money for the school band. Technically, we don't have to go, but every hour we work puts money directly in to Alex's band account to help pay for things like trips and uniforms. Next year is a travel year and it could cost $1000 or more.... so the more we can earn through bottle drives and fundraising, the easier it will be on us!

To add to the dismay of an alarm clock on a Saturday, we are looking at temperatures just above freezing tomorrow with a chance of rain and snow!! OMG! We were +30C 10 days ago! What happened??!! I might be heading to Home Depot this afternoon to pick up some lined work gloves. I should also see if my winter jacket fits... I haven't had it on in a while.

Sigh

I hate the weather

I'd be happy living somewhere that had one season... around 25C every day (that's 77F), sunshine... it can rain overnight to make the grass green and the flowers bloom.

That's my version of paradise.

With a pool boy named Julio of course... who brings me cold drinks in tall glasses with umbrellas!

Or, I can sit in a nice hot bubble bath like this cute little guy from Stampabilities. Isn't he a cutie?

This is another of the sketches from the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This was C4K2.

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip; PaperTrey White
*Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye
*Image: Stampabilities
*Ink: Memento black; Copic markers
*Embellishments: Dew Drops


Once I got my measurements working for me (thanks to the handy dandy clear Tim Holtz Design Ruler), this card came together very quickly. I was able to use up some scraps that I've had on hand for a for more than a year after making birth announcements for friends of ours.

Please be thinking warm thoughts all day tomorrow for me... or better yet, start thinking that they will postpone the bottle drive until the weather is nicer!!! Yikes!

I think you'll have a better luck with a hot bubble bath than Julio the pool boy. Cute card Nancy!
