Smile, it's Friday!

Well, it's not quite Friday here but close enough!  I'm smiling cause it's almost the weekend.  It's seemed like a long week with work being really busy and the weather being pretty ugly.  Bits of snow, plenty of rain and the strongest of winds.... was really happy to walk home in the sunshine late this afternoon though.... and it's great to see the flowers blooming here.  :)

A quick little card to play along with the colours over at the Hero Arts Contest this month.  They aren't exact but pretty close... using up some scraps in this one so that is always a bonus.  It also works for the CAS-ual Friday Challenge 44: Easy as 1, 2, 3 - Use a pattern, an image and a sentiment.

Random question... do you know a lot of people with birthdays this week?  At last count I know of 12 people between the 10th and the 16th (except none today, weird).... so count back 40 weeks from now... hmmm, frisky spring I guess!  Hee, hee.

Hope you had a great week and a fabulous weekend.  Looking forward to hooking up with some friends who moved away last year... they are back in town for a couple of days.  Miss hanging with them so really looking forward to it.
Thanks for stopping by,
