When you just have to say....


Well, not really...however, the flu bug has hit the Diedrich house and so far it's Mom and Ava down for the count :(   Little peanut had a 102.4 temp under her arm yesterday (which, are we still adding a degree these days?  I think we are- but nevertheless- it was HIGH!) and Mom has chills.

This is going to be a CRAZY. busy. week.
SO bear with me- cuz I might be here and there until next week.  The kids seriously have like 5 parties this week between school, dance, etc., a basketball game, Girl Scout cookie kick-off party, and oh yeah- I gotta get better ;)  Yikes!

Today's RCC33 challenge on the Ribbon Carousel blog made me pull out some twine and I have to say the sentiment makes me SMILE.   Today our teammate Danielle Daws  (LOVE her CAS style, btw!) has issued us a SUPER fun Twine Challenge today and Divine Twine is sponsoring a prize of 2 full spools to a lucky winner!

Be sure to check out the RCC blog for all the details.  Here's my card...and the story behind it today:

 I made this card for a friend of mine that I met at the beginning of this year.  Her daughter is in Ava's kindergarten class and she's our Girl scout leader and also is the reason I signed up to be a 31 consultant :)  She is a consultant too and also happens to make the CUTEST headbands, neck warmers (which is totally nuking waiting for me as I type!), ornaments, all kinds of cute personalized stuff.   Her name is Elizabeth and I am so, so excited that I finally met someone here in the neighborhood to hang out with who actually crafts, too!   Seriously- her stuff is SO cute- check out her Facebook Page and you might even recognize one of her little models ;)

We had to reschedule plans TWICE last week due to work stuff, sick kid stuff, etc. and then it just so happened that Friday we were talking on the phone and she said "are you busy"?  Well, we both are busy. Crazy busy.   But stir crazy too- LOL  So I said "hmm, no?"  LOL  and then the "let's do lunch" idea bloomed. (oh, and a spur-of-the-moment trip to Hobby Lobby where you 'accidentally' pass a Starbucks on the way ;) 

Anyway- as soon as I grabbed my UNITY Kit from November I knew it was the perfect card and tried to honor Danielle's CAS (Clean and Simple) style.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and seriously- check out not only the Ribbon Carousel store but also my friend's "Bees Knees" page!  See you soon!

Love the sentiment on that pretty card of yours!! Sorry to hear the sickies are going through the house. Hope all is well soon! Oh what I wouldn't give for a crafty friend in the neighborhood (or maybe I should say in this whole town, lol)! Hugs!
