  2. This really sweet, Janis! Now tell me... How do you find alll these cahllenges? I can't believe how many you found for this card!

  3. Hi Janice! LOVE the card, and the song too!.. Did you see all the HSN specials on t.v. today? It's been painful... downright torture, not breaking down and buying that cricut! I am sick just thinking about it, but let's not talk about that! I see you're reading "Charmed and Dangerous". Is it good?.. A friend just loaned me "Three Cups of Tea". She says it was really good, and wants me to read it, so I guess I'll start that one soon!... Have a great weekend! ~tina
