Another Wee Colleen

I posted this little Colleen just a wee bit ago and my sister Gail suggested that I save it for next year and send it to our cousin Maura for St. Patrick's Day. Not being one to usually send cards on time anyway - I wondered what the heck would be wrong with sending the card to her tomorrow.... But then I decided to make three of these to send to Maura for her to send to her three daughters next year. My aunt, Maura's mother, Kathleen, was born in Ireland so naturally St. Patrick's Day hold special meaning!

Go Chargers!

Finally a few moments to myself in the Bubble! Only have time to for a quick post. The women's varsity basketball team made it into the national quarterfinals so I'm off to the game to support the Chargers!
You'll have to excuse the Valentine card - I haven't made a card since the first of February so I guess it's still Valentine time in the Bubble.
