DREAMER

Hi. Posting late tonight, as we ran some errands today and went to an afternoon movie.  This retirement thing leaves us with time we never had before and so far so good.  We even had a gift certificate from one of our Godchildren from Christmas and enjoyed dinner at a favorite restaurant after the movie...

Today's card is for the challenge at Mo's Digital Challenge # 117 - Clean and Simple.  Mo has upped the anti in prizes, depending on how many folks enter the challenge. 


Isn't this little Amelia wanna-be just so cute.

Papers and border punch - Martha Stewart
Spellbinders die
Colored twine
Colored with Copic Markers

We are expecting a little snow tomorrow, only 3 to 5 inches, but so far this year we have only had
5 inches total.  Ski resorts and winter festivals are hurting.  And, Buffalo, New York has a reputation to uphold, we are always getting slammed on the National News............

Hope your day was good and tomorrow is better.  Thanks for stopping by today.  Until later....

Oh fun...when I was about a 6th grader, I became obsessed with Amelia Earhart...had to read everything I could get my hands on. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Sue, this is so cute. What a cute image and I love that punch. I think that is one I'm gong to get with one of my gift certificates I received for Christmas. Don't you just love retirement? My hubby still works, but all different shifts and different days off, so we get to go to the movies, shopping, etc. on all different days. I retired but they asked me to come back, but I only work 1/2 day a week (and fill in when some are our on vacation) Great Gig.
