Time to Celebrate with Pat and Paula

Good Afternoon,

Today has been a nice, peaceful day, except that my Jeep went to the shop to have some work. We knew it was coming after the last incident when the horn mysteriously went off while driving down the road. It was just a matter of finding the time to coordinate an appointment when the dealer was open and we were off. I am thankful it is finally getting repaired.

I always love these long weekend because it gives me quality crafting time. No one in the family disturbs me since they know it is my time to rejuvenate.  I went through the current challenges super early this morning and then created my list. Now...time to tackle.

Here is the first of many to come this long weekend...
 I created  this card for my crafty friend, Pat, of Pat's Scraps. She has had her blog for one year, so it is definitely time to celebrate.  Her first card was a birthday card, so I wanted to continue with that theme. Congratulations Pat! I hope you have many more years crafting, sharing, and blogging!

Also, it is Paula's birthday at More Than Favors. Happy Birthday to you! Be sure to stop by and send some birthday wishes to her.

Enjoy your holiday! I hope you find some fabulous Black Friday deals if you go shopping. I have made a list of a few items I am hoping to pick up. Did you see Michaels has the Expression 2 for $199.99? Trying to decide if I should upgrade. Any input?!?!
