Thanks So Much....
I can be such a procrastinator!
Every month I try to schedule my SU events
and make my samples for upcoming classes
I fail!
Maybe I am LAZY?
it could be a symptom of my MS?
Believe it or not
planning, scheduling events
is a serious symptom of my MS!
So is uncontrollable
laughter and crying!
I know it sounds crazy!!
You see I can walk
like someone who just got
off a rollercoaster!
But my BRAIN takes a beating!
is the best therapy!
Here is a card I made
last night!
I love this Sweet Pea DSPaper
and will be sad to see it retire!
You have until April 30th
to order out of the Occasions Mini Catalog.
I'll be back tomorrow with more cards!
