A Wheeee! and more cards

Happy Thursday everyone!! I am super excited to say that I was chosen for the design team at Scrapbook Express!!! SE is a full service scrapbooking store with great papers and products from all sorts of companies. They also have a great forum and gallery with lots of challenges and contests. Come on over and say hi if you have a chance!!

I went a little card crazy on my scrapbook retreat two weekends ago. Sometimes cards are easier for me to complete and I took advantage of the retreat to make quite a few. Here is another one using my stash of Cosmo Cricket.


More Cosmo Cricket, more bling swirls, more baker's twine...


More ruffled ribbon, more Papertrey Ink sentiments...


I just love the bright colors!! They make me happy. And wishful for summer and a time when I can take this darn walking boot off and starting working out again. I don't need to run a marathon, just maybe some laps in the pool? Some walks around the block? I'm trying to be patient, but it's hard. Wish me luck for the next 3 1/2 weeks!

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you're having a good week!
