  17. I wanted to make cards so bad, but I chose to travel to see my mother who lives in the next state over. It’s been a long time since we visited and was a perfect day. We ate lunch outside in the warm sun and talked and laughed. I even squeezed in a visit to one of my sisters.
    Today I will make cards.

  25. Every month, I make cards for the “Cards for a Cause” from Splitcoast Stampers. Today I’m adding to a pile of cards I’ll be mailing out on Monday. I love making cards for a needy organization as much as they love receiving them.

  26. Ohhhhhhhhhh I wish I could have spent the day making cards but instead I did something much more fun … I volunteered with our fire department for eight hours and it was so fulfilling. Maybe next year …

  27. I was wishing I could be making cards . . . .I went to soccer, fall ball, dance . . . .and then had family over. So today I am off checking out blogs to see what I missed! Thanks for the opportunity to win!
