You can do Anything...CASology Week 207

Hello

I can NOT believe that the Tour de France wrapped up today! Where has the last three weeks gone! Withdrawal about to set in because I LOVE the Tour.  On top of it being over *sob*, to my chagrin, the rider I selected to win did not, despite all my cheering and encouraging (yes, I do, on occasion, get rather animated with what's happening on the TV screen *grin*). My husband's choice did win. I owe him a big ol' Dairy Queen Blizzard!  We did not negotiate one spoon or two...since I'm buying there will definitely be TWO spoons!   Fortunately, we have three days of officiating at bike races coming up next weekend, so my 'missing the races' will be short-lived.

Anyway...I've created a card for  CASology Week 207, which had me pondering a few directions.


I finally decided on a 'pick-me-up' card for someone going through a 'rough' patch. A couple of encouraging sentiments, paired with stamped polka-dots.  Polka-dots...little circles of 'happy'. Hopefully, my card 'works' and that your spirits are a little brighter in having seen it...


That's all....*waving*

Thank you for spending time with me today; your visit brings me joy!
