another clean & simple sketch...

Hi all!!

Well I was excited to see that y'all are interested in my Menu Monday idea~I hope I don't disappoint!!! I figure if I am doing the work, why not share it??

Last night Mike and I attended our first week (of 13) of Financial Peace University. If you have never heard of Dave Ramsey...he is a great speaker and teacher on getting out of debt and saving for the future. I was very scared when I saw he used an example of buying fancy coffee, cause I like to get my Starbucks fix every so often, LOL!!! Mike assured me that we would budget for my 1-2 weekly SB fix (gotta love that guy!!!), I hope he is that generous with my stamp and camera fund, LOL!!! I am sure I will be blogging about the experience as the weeks go by, so stay tuned *wink*

I used the C&S sketch for today's card ( I think I am getting addicted to their challenges!!), they are so great if you just need a starting point...which is usually the case when I sit down at my craft table~then once I get a card done, the creative juices start to flow (most of the time).

Today I am taking 5 cards with me to work, along with my address book then I am picking 5 friends to encourage this week! I don't know about you, but sometimes life gets so crazy that I forget to let others know I am thinking about them.
