Happy March!

Good afternoon! PLEASE forgive me for being so tardy today; it was an all-out, run-the-race weekend. PHEW. For those of you waiting for my newsletter, it's going to PROBABLY be until Wednesday when I get it done. I'm sorry, but I am WIPED OUT.

I have to share with you a blessing from this weekend. My sister and brother-in-law and seven kids were here; the 2-year-old wasn't sure what to think of me for a while, but then she brought me a note and told me it said, "I love you". I pulled out a piece of scrap paper that I'd stamped "fan mail" on - which was funny to ME, because she'd had her sister fold my note into a paper fan. :D I wrote, "Aunt Lori loves M-------", and handed it to her. She treasured it all weekend - and brought me notes that not only said "I love you", but "Aunt Lori loves me". :D Here's a picture of my desk piled HIGH with love notes!

And, FINALLY, when I said goodbye to them - I did a hostess party yesterday afternoon - I got a hug from her. :) Kenn caught this one!

OK. :D Enough of my family - but my heart (and face!) is still smiling. :)

Here's today's sample, from February's ADVANCED TECHNIQUES. It IS a Techniques Junkies technique - how did you know?!?! :D

It's called MONO DIES!

Card stock: Pixie Pink, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White

Ink: Pixie Pink, Tempting Turquoise

Stamp set: Well Scripted

Accessories: Big Shot, SU! Sweetest Stem Embosslit, wide oval punch, Tempting Turquoise ribbon

Seriously. If you've never been to an Advanced Techniques class, you should COME! We have a BLAST, and you get to learn different ways of using your supplies!

OK, I'm off. I'm trying not to feel too guilty about not getting my newsletter out today.... :D I need to clean up from my workshops, and get busy stamping for MARCH! :D

Have a WONDERFUL day! Don't forget to STAMP something!!!!

You had seven kids visiting and you didn't get the time to do the newsletter?!?!? I don't understand!

Pretty color combo on this card.
