Thoughts of You! CCMC290

February 18, 2014

It is a gorgeous day in Georgia!  It is 66 degrees!  You can't ask for more than that in February!   I really hate to say that when my Indiana friends and family are still covered with snow.  I know it seems like the winter that will never end to them!

I have not blogged for a few days because my computer went crazy!  I have been dealing with that computer for years and finally decided to make the plunge and buy a new one.  My Sweetie went with me and bought a MacBook Pro for me!  It is so amazing and I have so much to learn, but I am thrilled!

I am down to the last few hours to enter the Create With Connie and Mary Color Challenge this week. I loved the colors and needed a get well card for a male friend that had surgery.  I absolutely love the Fine Feathers stamp set and I never use it often.  I thought it was perfect for my card.  ENJOY!!
