I've Always Wanted to Quilt ☺

Stamps: Gingersnaps "Spring Things" (C.C.Designs)
Designer papers: SU!

I think it's officially Spring here in the high desert . There was a digital sign in town that said, "It's's's's's's SPRING!" So true! Last evening it was lightly snow/raining and today it's sunny and ...okay, only 50 degrees, but better than it has been!

These cute little Gingersnaps are so much fun This time I patched a "faux quilt"--just punched out squares of dp with my 1 1/4" square punch, taped them down to a piece of white c.s. and ran it through my cuttlebug with the Top Note die. Then I added the "x"s for stitching, and popped the whole piece up with dimensional tape on my Spring green layer. She is also popped up with pop dots.

So it's Friday...which brings mixed feelings because I normally would be jumping for joy, but in this case it means the end of our Spring Break *sigh*. I've taken off work the whole week, so even though I like my job, it was so nice to take a whole week at a time off. I don't think I've ever done that. The girls want to have a slumber party with 3 friends over and I guess I told them a couple weeks ago that maybe during Spring Break. SO, here it is. House is a mess. So I told them they have to clean their bathroom, and then they have the choice between cleaning the livingroom or washing the car. They opted for the car! LOL. SUCKERS!!! Ok, now I guess I need to get off here so I can go clean up the livingroom. :( The next week-long break I have I'd like to veg out and not you think my family would go for that? lol. Ya, didn't think so either!

Have a super weekend!!
