I am SO glad it's Friday! For one, the dance studio that Jess goes to is hosting a movie night so I paid for both Lindsay and Jess to go, which means that Tom and I get to have a date night! I hardly even remember what that is. It is extremely rare that we go out without the kids - so I am really looking forward to that tonight. I may have to take a nap today just so, in all the peace and quiet, I don't fall asleep! That sounds awful, but I've been up all hours of the night lately with Lindsay. She hasn't had a fever, but for 2 days she went through rounds of vomiting like 7 or 8 times in an hour. Poor thing couldn't even keep down a teaspoon of water. I was really afraid she was getting too dehydrated - so I took her to the dr. and paid for a prescription and of course - after I shell out the money - she seems to be better now. lol, that's just the way it goes in my world. :) But I'm just glad she's better. Doing laundry at 3 in the morning...well, I can think of better things to do. SLEEP!

So I had been working on a bunch of stuff to post on my blog - and as it turns out they've all been requested for publication, so now I'm back to square one. I had 4 cards, a little mitten place card, and I was finally going to post my chipboard basket. I made two to submit to GiftMaker and this is the one they did not choose. But I submitted it somewhere else and they accepted it for publication. So, since those are all gone, I made 4 cards with matching envies last night for the Rusty Pickle Blog:

The layout posted at the top is a hybrid layout. It features the following supplies:
2peas Free Oct. kit - Tia Bennett, Hearts Alight
ACOT - Something Blue Sentence Strips
DCWV scallop stack (cardstock)
Ranger Adirondack paint dabber - Aqua
MAMBI Icons (rhinestone heart)
Deluxe Designs Plane Janes Decorative Chipboard accents
Misc. trim
Prima Got Flowers (neutural)
Rusty Pickle buttons
Zig black pen
I did the journaling on the scalloped oval (Something Blue Sentence Strips) in PSE 5.0
