Hi there, Volume 2

I have no clue where my blog post went.  I had it all scheduled to go live this morning and when I checked in on it, it wasn't up.  Looked into it and published it only to find a blank post!  Looks like in addition to learning new technology in our house, I also have to get used to a new blogger style.  I already had a major meltdown yesterday b/c I don't have time for the things I want to do as it is.  My dad is not well and we have a doctor appointment today.

But...onward and forward for a moment...I did get to stamp a this card Saturday.  My fashionista friend gave us a style challenge to mix patterns.  I didn't get a chance to do it with clothes, but I did work it into this card!  The chevron stripe paper is recycled from the packaging of my Heidi Swapp 12x12 Resist paper pack.  Very cool!

Have a great new week!
I'll be doing better after today is over...
We have a potluck scheduled for this Friday with a bunch of friends, so I'm looking forward to that planned social event.  I could so easily have said "not this week", but I felt like I needed that to look forward to!  And if you get in the habit of saying "not this week", things have a tendency of never happening.

What a happy card! Hope all goes well with your Dad's appointment & that he's feeling better soon. I agree, you can't keep putting things off or you'll never get around to them - enjoy your upcoming get together.
