  46. Carri, this is a cutie pie card!! Love that owl! TOO CUTE! It was a busy day but I always feel good after being busy. I think it is hilarious our kids don't want to sleep in their own rooms. It kind of boggles my mind. But I had to share with my sister and hated it so that is probably why I can't understand it. I'm sure they won't want to do it forever.
    I FINALLY finished a card that I have been working on all evening. No mojo tonight. I'm not thrilled with it but I'm too tired now to change it! LOL Oh well, tomorrow is another day and I can work on another one then. My kids are home tomorrow. Teacher conference or something. So it is still "the weekend" here! Have fun at work. (if that is possible!! LOL) hugs!
