Yippee for Bubble Time

Finally managed to squeeze in Bubble time. Whooooooo Hoooooo! Between weekends spent with sissy Gail and crunch time at time for the Bubble and card therapy. Sad that!

Needed to get busy working on a request card for Mary Lee. She wanted a card to welcome home family members who have been living outside the United States. She said something about putting - glad you are home now stay home....but don't think she was serious about actually putting that ON the card!

I'm off to pay off a 'bribe' of sorts...suffice it to say it includes baked goods. Lots to tell next blog-in it regards cooking, final days of school, a Walk with the Sisters, and I'll explain the 'bribe'. So happy to have had some Bubble time. I was really nervous that I wouldn't be able to get back into the card making thing...but I guess I got back into the card saddle without too much difficulty after all.

All good wishes,
