  14. This is a wonderful card! I love that embossing folder! I just got a similar one in the mail today from Crafter's Companion. I will have to try it out and see if it turns out as cute as yours.
    I actually watched the Oscars last night and haven't watched WD yet! I'm hoping the kids will go to bed at a reasonable time so I can watch it tonight...I'm dying! And I'm cracking up that you look for places to hide while you run!!!!!!!!!LMBO! I bet it makes it fun though.

    I'm so sorry you got so sick!!!! I get motion sick too. The best thing for me is to sit in the front seat of the bus. Good luck on the next trip! Bring some large ziplocks that you can barf into and seal just in case...

    I will let you know when I finally get to watch WD so we can chat. hugs!! Stacy
