How’s your weekend going? I’m doing OK, although the clock seems to be moving faster than it does during the week. This afternoon, I’m preparing a project for stamp club tonight in between loads of laundry. I’m looking for to this evening and wish the laundry would do itself. LOL. That’s it for now. As always, thanks for stopping by! Later …

Beautiful cards! I just finished my Halloween cards so you are just in time for Thanksgiving inspiration. Thanks for sharing!! By the way, I agree that the clock isn't very friendly on the weekend. What's up with that anyway?
