Ice Cream Posies

Another busy week at school and it is a short work week. Freshman orientation weekend is this Saturday and Sunday so there has been a flurry of activity in preparation for 60+ freshman and their parents. We will keep them busy with fun, facts, and an evening in the dorms!

I'm sitting at sister Gail's house right now - already in our jammy pants! Sister Judy called to say she really like the card I made for her neighbor's 40th anniversary. That card was fun to make (unlike all of the UN-fun wedding cards). The Judy card just came together. I love it when that happens! It was fun to hear that Judy liked the card - a boost to my bubble time ego.

Let's get straight to the cards. Both of these are made using the Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge one is set vertically the other horizontally.
