Marv elous Monday!!

It's Monday again and I hope that everyone had a fabulous week-end.
Mine was busy of course, with young ones over for the whole week-end it kept me hopping. My DD and I did a GirlScout cookie booth at the HS on Friday night and was really fun. Our cookies are in and now for delievery!!!!
We had a very close call on Friday by our farm house. A mile south, there was a trash fire that got a way and headed east. Although it didn't make it this way the thought was very scary. A 80 yr old wind break was almost totally lost and had started to head for our neighbors that have cattle and hay! which could have been a disaster unheard about. I know that the big man upstairs was watching.
Well, it Monday and you know what that means. YEAH SKETCHES!!!
Heather's is up on her blog. Go and check it out and see what you can come up with this week. Send your card to me and share.
Also we have our Monday Mojo up and take a look at it. WOW I can see a wonderful Easter card from this.
So there ya go now I need to go play with the stamps and see what I can come up with my creations.
Have fun today and don't forget to share. Love to see what everyone is stamping

yourself today! That's right, challenge yourself today or this week whether it's big or small. OK need some examples. I challenged myself this year to be better at my blog and yes it's a challenge! Not only is it fun but it keeps you on your toes to post every day or every other day or when ever you can get to it. I like it so I can keep in touch with you as my readers and followers. Another challenge is try to make cards each week. You can set a limit ie. one per day or five per week. Don't want to make cards then try memory pages. Now is the time to get out some of your favorite pictures from Christmas and start showing those off in your Memory Album. These are just a few ideas. So get started today with this awesome challenge and see what you can come up with. I hope to share some of my creations here this week to help you out. Please share with me what you are doing and I would love to post what you've done.
thanks for stopping by and come back soon you never know what I will have for you next!!!!

If you live in Kansas you need to be ready!!! For servere weather that is. That's right, it's hard to believe that Spring is right around the corner but that is when weather here gets a little intense and Kansasans need to be full aware of servere weather.

As storm spotters in our county, we get pumped up and actually go out and watch these storms so we can report back to the weather station as spotters. Some people just cringe at the word "tornadoes" and "servere weather" but that is something you have to deal with when living in good ol Kansas.

For those readers here is some information that is very helpful, informative, and interesting. National Severe Weather is March 9-13th, 2009 and for those readers just wanting some information you got to check this out.

here are some interesting pictures to share with ya today!


I finally got a chance to get with my stamping sister since it's been a long time almost a year. Why so long, well our plans were just not working. So finally we got a chance to sit down, catch up for lost time, share what we've been working on, and most of all help one another but only for a very short time and it was so worth it. It is amazing how time flies by. We have plans to get together for next month and are going to try to do better.

It's a great feeling and wonderful theraphy for the soul to take time, relax, and do something for yourself that you enjoy. I will have more here in a few days of what we shared and had a chance to work on so stayed tune and happy stamping

thanks for stopping by have a great week-end.

OK here is Heather's Monday Sketch #60
