Snowflake Card

I am entering this card into the Cheery Lynn challenge, which closes in a few minutes. So I will be back later to fill you in on the details...

Didn't get back to this last night, but we were watching the football game--yay, Giants!--and then watched American Idol. There are going to be some really great singers on that show this year; we are looking forward to the competition. Oh, and Gary got me hooked on Breaking Bad, so he and Wendy and I watched a couple of episodes of that, (thanks to Netflix). Oh my, that's a terrible, but somehow funny, show. Reminds me of how I felt when I saw the movie, Fargo. I can remember laughing so hard that I cried during the shower curtain scene. Do you recall that? You know, where the woman, who is going to get killed, goes running out of the shower, with the curtain covering her, and she falls down the stairs. Sick. Sick, I tell you. Sick humor, but I bought into it. I was disgusted with myself at the same time I was howling with laughter. What's up with that, anyway? I. don't. know. But Breaking Bad has the same type of humor. I find myself laughing at totally inappropriate moments. Sigh....

BTW, Gary made a fabulous Indian dinner last night for him, Jack, Wendy, and me. OMG! It was so good, it makes my mouth water just to mention it. Come to think of it, I haven't eaten yet today, so perhaps that is why my mouth is watering. ? What the he**? Guess I need to go find something to munch on. But not before I finish up this post.

I entered this card into the Cheery Lynn challenge, but am now going to enter it into three other challenges. I got the sketch from Simon Says Stamps challenge, the girl theme from Outlawz Copics challenge, and the winter theme from CMC challenge. It all fit with the snowflake theme from Cheery Lynn challenge.

Now I need to do at least one page in my Smash journal for the new group I've joined: CMC We R Smash Bookin', Scrappin', and Journalin'!! That's a mouthful, huh? Hopefully, I will get a page done this week so I can post it.
