Break Time

I work at a university so I have the entire week between Christmas and New Year's Eve off, why then I ask you, am I spending it deep cleaning? Well okay - not ONLY cleaning - I am squeezing in some time for making cards. Making a card is my break time. I tell myself - "go through ONE more box and then you can treat yourself with some time at the craft table." And it's not actually what I would call cleaning it is more of a downsizing extravaganza! REALLY...I couldn't find a better way to spend a week off!?

This is another card for sister Gail. Wonder how many more I have to make for to fill her 'order'?
