What?! I have all my cards done for this challenge, so I can't cause too many problems here. However, I still have the other challenge to do. You probably should have said something there. Since you didn't, I'll go cause problems over there.

I need to be fair to you all and tell you what's going on and why I haven't left love or caught up on the first page. Last Sunday, 12/11//16, a dear friend that was like family to us for at least 12 years took his life. He was only 28 yoa. It has saddened us deeply and some days I just get done what has to be done. But know I check in every day... trying to keep life as normal as possible. And of course last night my throat started hurting and feeling like ********. So a Christmas cold on top of everything...oh joy!

But do wish everyone else is finding time to craft and spend time with family and friends....it is VERY important.
