Wings and Hearts

When I started reorganizing my scrap room...I was shocked to realize how much scrappy goodies I have.  How many kits I have bought over the years and that is still sitting there untouched.  So this weekend I emptied one kit and Saturday would be the day I finish this project.  It is the Wings and Hearts card kit designed by the very talented Beatriz Jennings and purchased from The Scrappy Gourmet. 

At 7 o' clock DH left for a men's breakfast...and no I did not go and scrap... I sat around and caught up with my blog reading.  Very important business of the day;-D
At 8 o' clock my brother-in-law phoned to invite DH for a game of golf.  Something I knew I would not be able to resist, despite the wind howling today.
I procrastinated until about 10.  As I don't have to work today I decided to walk for an hour on the treadmill.  The new medication is causing me to gain weight and that is not on.
When DH returned from his lengthy breakfast I just got off the treadmill.  He quickly mowed the lawn before he left for the golf course.
The deal is...he can play golf but tonight we go out for supper and a movie.
After he left I started be interrupted by the front doorbell rang.  It was Wynand, Christian and Lukas.  
Wynand wanted coffee and the children wanted my plans were put on the back burner.  I mean who can resist those cute little ones.
When they eventually left at 3 o' clock my sister-in-law came around for coffee and a chat.
At last at 4 o' clock I sat down and started creating.
I must be honest and say that things work better for me when I don't plan my day;-D
These were the cards from the kit...but there was a lot of extra goodies and I ended making an additional three cards.

Happy weekend!
